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.

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.

Huge fruity malt sweetness int he aroma. Apple and citrus fruits. Pale golden with a thin white head. Sweet malt fore with some citrus hop presence. Very limited flavor range and low flavor intensity. Still it is quenching and refreshing. Would make a good ball game beer.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 4, 2005
A slightly hazed, golden body with a quickish head... an appearance that would rate a "3" without that stylin’ Betty on the label.... VROOM! Bready aroma with hopcit & a dash of pepper. Honey/grapefruit flavor with APA-worthy hop action. Ends a little thin, but she’s a tasty little blonde.

Robe blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche persistente. Arômes de céréales. Saveurs de céréales. Légèrement houblonnée. Honnête.

jgentgesdo (668) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 31, 2005
Pours hazy golden with medium white head. Nose is wildflowers and honey. The flavor is honey, mild malt, that ascerbic bite of unsmooth ales. Very watery mouthfeel. Almost no bitterness. Ok.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Had a sour and Yeast aroma. Cloudy golden color with thin white head that disiapated rather quickly. Flavor had a sour and bitter taste with a sense that there was some film on the drink. Flavor had more bitter in the taste as the sourness was left on the palate. This was an intriging beer for me.

BeerandBlues2 (9685) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin rocky white film. Light malt (meal, cereal) and yeast (dough) with a sour floral hop nose. Sweet floral hop lightly acidic sweet honey flavor with a malt (grain, cereal) body and ends with a hoppy sweetness, floral. Light and refreshing creamy palate.

ross (2088) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - JUL 25, 2005
pours out yellow without any head at all. taste is sort of rich and malty, fairly smooth to drink too. crisp finish. good if it was hot outside, or you just felt like drinking a 12 pack of something. not bad, not the best, but certainly drinkable.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Rich yellow color without much head, indeed, even appearing flat relatively soon after pouring. Dry aroma, some hops obvious in a straw way, but also suggesting something floral. The flavor jumps out a bit more sweetly with some malt life, with a palate that matches with a bit of thickness and oil, but still the ending is mostly dry with a hint of metal in the bitterness. Overall the effect is not very satisfying, being both limp for lack of carbonated zing, and a bit off-putting in the flavor dimensions.
