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.

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

CaptainCougar (7129) - 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.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2006
Found this one bottled in Belvidere, Illinois. Hazy light yellow pour with a thick white head, nose of tart apples and malts, very sweet taste with baked bread and a little caramel. This one was pretty good.

thegreenrooster (3194) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 17, 2006
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a huge white head. Aroma is vanilla and honey sweetness. Flavor is creamy but very watery. Nothing really going on here. Another bland brew from this brewer

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2005
Light straw color with a tall fluffy white head. Sweet bubblegum, honey and floral aromas. Hints of malt and grain in the backdrop. Rather boring watery substance. Hints of malt and lightly floral. A touch of metal bites cuts the tongue and lips. Has a light lager signature with a mild yeast enhancement. Some grape juice also in the mix. Just a really light golden ale.

steview (1019) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 13, 2005
primarily lemony and chalky, with a pinch of sweets and spice; however, not very bitter nor sweet, and there is some acidity to it. somewhat creamy texture, but the palate is so boring. not bad, but could be a lot more lively, literally and with whatever imagination you can muster.

bu11zeye (11940) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2005
(Bottle, courtesy of Kevin) Pours a lightly cloudy golden body with a moderate white head. Aroma of florals, yeast, and citrus. Flavor of malt, mild hops, and a hint of honey.

The girl on the package looks like she would have a nice package, but just like in real life looks are decieving, and there was little to offer in the overall package. Nice hazy blonde color with a creamy white head. The flavor was reminicent of a belgian wit without the spice. There was a bit of a fruity ester from the yeast but little else offered in this bottle. Someone please stop this brewery from confirming peoples fears that a creative package usually contains an unexciting beer. You would think that a marketing major bought a brew house and is using the guide line recipes that it came with. Perhaps they should let the graphic designer make the beer it might be more creative.
