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.

Flaske 0,355l fra House of Trembling Madness, York. Drukket hjemme 2 Okt 13. Veldig lys gylden. Litt uklar. OK skinnende hvitt skum som varer en stund. Beskjeden fruktaroma men antydning til krydder. Lite kullsyre. Smaken er litt vassen men får mer og mer preg av krydder før den toner ut litt syrlig.

pours a transparent golden color with a thick fluffy white head that stayed the entire time and left lots of lacing around the glass. the aroma was of sweet malts and some breadiness as well. the taste is similar to the aroma but i did notice that as the beer warmed up the honey became more prominent and really changed the flavor as i drank it. each sip i took the honey flavor came out more and i honestly don’t understand all the negative reviews. this is a good beer well worth the try.
