3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours yellow with a white head. Taste sweet, citrus, light. I thought this was good. I would drink this again.

Citrus hops, yeast. Light body, fruity malt, earthy pine hops, touch of honey, gentle bitter finish. Quite clean, smooth and enjoyable, kind of a hoppy Belgian blond.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours straw gold with a white head that fades to a rim and light coating. Aroma is grain, grass, maybe a touch of honey. Taste follows somewhat, but adds bready malt, lemon and more floral honey. Some noble hops in a slightly bitter finish. A drinkable brew that has decent depth for a blonde.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains mostly on the nose, no hops to really speak of; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean and simple.
