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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(tap) clear very pale yellow colour with a small white head; light floral aroma; light, inoffensive flavour - not much of it really

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.

Poured from can into a pint glass. Heavy blonde with the perfect balance between bitter hops and sweet. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

scotchzombie (329) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - AUG 18, 2014
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.

Bif (1451) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 29, 2014
12oz can. Pours a clear straw color with a good head that fades to bits of lacing. Mild aroma of fruit, citrus, bit of honey and grain. Taste of a mild fruit sweetness, bit of citrus and honey. Light bitterness and a slightly sweet finish. Light body, crisp smooth and refreshing. Enjoyable beer that goes best with BBQ.

Nephilium (1360) - Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Mild grain aroma, pours a clear pale yellow with a thin white head. Light bodied, with a crisp finish. There’s a small touch of malt and a kiss of honey. Easy drinking, nothing special though.

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.
