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.

12oz can from Ed5388. Tonight while Ed shared this one he ate a banana in one bite while reciting the opening monolouge from Reservoir Dogs, I was shocked too........I didnt even know he owned a DVD player. Poured an unimpressive pale straw gold body with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of grains, corn, honey topped bread, corn husks. Medium body with foamy carbonation and a quicker fading aftertaste. Flavor is watery, old grains and a hint of veggies. Weak.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
355ml bottle carried back home from the Trembling Madness Shop in York. Pours an airy white head, mostly dissipating. Fragile lacing. Pale golden body. Moderate aroma of mid-sweet fruity and pale malts. Mild, but sappy, fruity taste of peach and lemon joined by hints of honey sweetness. Subdued fruit bitter ending. Soft in the mouth. Medium bodied. A thirst quencher, uncomplicated and unvaried (Tromsø 05.10.2013).

Appearance: translucent yellow color, one inch foam head not too dense, pretty clear yellow color
Aroma: wheat, honey
Taste: honey, strong taste that really opens the senses
Palette: bitter for a blonde, leaves the tongue slightly dry, medium body
Overall: this is unlike any blonde I have head, alot more bitter than I expected

Transparent light golden appearance with a small cloudy white head. Did not get the aroma of honey. Very good beer for sitting around and drinking! A medium body that is very refreshing!

On tap at the Breckenridge Ballpark Pub. Pour is pale yellow in appearance with a small white head and decent lacing. Bready, doughy, straw, lightly citrusy aroma - really not much going on. Taste is grassy, doughy, biscuity, straw, lemon peel, and skunky with a crisp bitter bite on the finish. Light body with high carbonation. Meh.

I normally don't like blonde ales and this did nothing to change my mind. Weak head and a light taste. Just not much there.

Draught. Pours a clear golden color with a slighter white head on it. Nose is pretty light in there, but I can get a slight bit of sweetness with just a smack of honey in there. Taste is pretty light as well, and is relatively crisp and easy to drink. Good summer brew, but not a lot to it.
