DrnkMcDermott (2961) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2006
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.

GTAEgeek (1665) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Bottle from Zach. Pale, clear yellow, with a thin, off-white head. The nose is butterscotch, a touch of resin, cloves, and corn. Sweet, with only a hint of bitterness. Light body, crisp, and clean. This is a surprisingly nice, easy blonde.

@ SBWF 2015: En ganska enkel blond ale utan större konstigheter - kanske lite söt eftersmak

seymour (1800) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2015
Drank from a cold can at Maplewood Summer Concert in the Park series, thanks Jed! Basic easy-drinking golden/blond ale, malty and hoppy, nicely balanced, with a little ale yeast esters. I didn’t detect any honey, except just a mellow residual sweetness. Light-medium body, strong carbonation, nice alcoholic strength near the top of sessionable range. Decent, drinkable, approachable.
