COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp Blonde Ale. Golden in color, medium in body—she’s brewed with the help and the honey of Durango ’s Honeyville bees.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Dark gold with a light head and some strings of lacing. Musky aroma that is slightly grassy and bitter. Husky flavors with a bit of wheat. Bitter notes with some hints of honey. Toast malt finish that is kind of bready.

A crisp, light brew. Hints of honey in the aftertaste but not much. It is a nice summer ale and easy to drink but could be improved. Good, but I have had better.

RobKormal (36) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle from World Market. Yellowy color with bubbly, white head. Aroma is sweet and frothy. Kind of watery, light, golden. Creative label, but otherwise, an uncreative beer.

DrnkMcDermott (2812) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
Loose bottle from Sam’s Wines, Downers Grove. Definitely the American brewpub style of blond ale. Pours a big rocky head. Yellow body, kind of hazy with lots of floaties. Crisp and kind of lemony, with that bit of honey peeking through. Basic noble hop component. A good beginner’s craft beer. Date notch says it was bottled in October, so it’s held up OK.

footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2006
brewed with honey my ass.Tastes more like they cleaned out a horse barn and substituted the soiled straw for the honey. A truly nasty beer.

ElGaucho (2225) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Aroma is not good. Smells like damp cardboard. Clear, light gold with no carbonation. Maintains a small white head. Light flavor; unfortunately tastes like it smells. Has somewhat of a dry unoffensive finish; otherwise I would have rated it lower.

Probiere (992) - Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2006
Inoffensive. A lightly honey-sweet, some mandarin oranges, dusty hay, spritzy, herbalish finish. Easy drinker.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2006
Bottle courtesy of Nuffield: Pours a transparent golden blonde with a dense pillowy white head. Lightly sweet malty aroma has some smooth floral attributes. Body starts with a semi-sweet well-carbonated palate with some smooth malty-earthy dryness and a hint of coriander. Nicely-balanced and very drinkable, but not all that interesting.

Oh . . . hold on . . . just a second . . . what was that? A beer? Oh I thought it was flavored water. The only thing this ale has going for it is that it wasn’t nasty. Really it was pretty bland, maybe a little honey and whea a wateryt, but basically dressed up water.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2006
Poured a hazy yellow color with effervecent bubbles running up form the bottom. Medium sized white head. The aroma is of apples, cereal, and dusty paper. A little bit of plastic was in there as well. Malty flavor was light and fruity. Semi-dry finish had a fair amoutn of bitterness.
