Good deep cloudy blond ale, more golden in color. Small head with lacing. Leathery machine grit aroma. The taste has a slightly fermented, doughy character. Heavy body. Plugging finish, heavy fizz on the back on the throat.

daknole (9466) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 5, 2009
Thanks mar! Yellowish pour. Nice white head. Aroma is malty and bready. Flavor is very bready, light banana and caramel malt. Not bad, not amazing.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Unfiltered pour, yes! Gentle nose of grain, bread crust, sourdough, and just a pinch of citrus and spice. Tastes of liquid white bread, crust, sourdough, earth, grass, with plenty of yeast and fruit for contrast. Finishes with grass, earth, dough, and crust. Gentles bitterness. Light bodied, but mouth-filling. Can this style be done any better than this? I thought this was great.

cexshun (99) - Portage, Indiana, USA - JUN 4, 2009
Pours a dark straw color. Tall, foamy white head. Recedes with no lacing. Aroma of light banana, bread, and malts. Tastes of bread, hint of banana. No hop presence. Goes down easy. Light mouth feel. Not terrible, but I probably wouldn’t buy again.

Golden orange in color with a light haze and a decent off-white head. Aroma is of toffee, caramel, banana, and dough. Taste is caramel and nuts with a buscuit like finish. Very smooth and overall pleasant to drink.

Can from eric, thanks brother. Hazy orange in color, small head that faded quickly. Aroma of light banana bread. Taste was actually better then I expected. Sweet but light banana bread with a touch caramel. Smooth and easy to drink. Not a bad beer at all..

Eh, doesn’t near compare to it’s pale ale cousin but then again I guess you can only make a blonde ale so interesting. I knew I should’ve bought a single. I’ll save the other 5 for when my coors light drinking friends come over.
