I’m getting more cereal and less fruit and hops than previous reviewers. Not bad. Crisp light body. Sessionable, sure, but rather boring. Likely a one timer

Vestlake (143) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Pours a cloudy yellow with lots of streaming bubbles. Both aroma and taste are malt with a slight hop bitterness. This one’s okay. It would be great to take a cooler of these to the beach.

BOSSbrewer (1600) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Had at the Great Arkansas Beer Festival 2014. Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Not much flavor. Slight hop on the nose - and biscuit. Not much to it. Decent beer.

Right in the middle of the pack for a blonde. Not bad, true to style. CLean and refreshing but just another "we gotta make a blonde" type beer nothing outrageous but good nonetheless

This beer is rather like a helles. The pour is pale and cloudy as the beer is un-filtered and heavily carbonated, overall like homebrew. The flavor is very malty, rather sweet, and yeasty in a Belgian way. Lightly hopped with a clean finish. Good in hot weather and with bar food.

TXBadger (1354) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and a little yeast on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes pretty clean.

Can to Nonic pint. Aroma is slightly citrusy with definite bready malt. Taste is the same. No hops. Finish is clean. Drinkable but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

docsteigs (527) - Texas, USA - JUN 12, 2014
This is a good beer. Pours mildly hazy dark yellow with nice head. Aroma clean and hints of bread, little to no hops. Taste is also clean and refreshing. Finishes with hints of flower and bread with mild bitterness noted on finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Hazy orange pour with a finger of head. Floral, grass, grain. Light to medium body. Short finish. Not bad but not exciting
