Bottle. Honey barley malt and herbal citrus peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with small head. Honey and barley malt flavor. Watery palate. Okay.

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Soft grassy, floral citrus and sweet cracker malt. Lighter orange color. Minor bitterness but mainly the smooth biscuit malt found in English blonds. Crisp and not as light as it seems at first. Nice session beer, not much else.

Pours clear, medium gold with a short, white head. Barley malt, lemon, grain aroma. Grassy, crisp, grain flavor. Fairly mediocre.

Bottle: Clear golden color with a bit of creamy white head. Good retention and ots of sticy lacing. Nose is mild with bicuit malt and grass. Lightly herbal. Tastes sweeter than the aroma would suggest and adds a crisper floral element. Nice amount of malty sweetness and it holds onto the florals without being overly sharp. Refreshing.

Pours a nice lightly hazy straw color with a small well retained head that leaves good lacing on the glass.

Aroma has a lot of raw grain, some maltiness… very mild leafy character, yeasty and in a way a touch metallic.

Flavor is mild, not bad though… it’s got a nice touch of leafy happiness…. some light but zippy enough bitterness, and a little bit of bright malty character. It’s more or less on the dry side of things, and I sure don’t mind it.

Really it’s pretty watery, it’s thin and not especially well served by the low carbonation… although there is a zippy sharpness to it that is the mouth feels saving grace.
Decidedly not something I’d go after again, although it’s enjoyable enough and not offensive in any way.

Clear pale golden with a fast dissipating head. The nose is kinda leafy floral, not as malty as I expect a blonde to be. The taste retains that floral hoppy leafy flavor, almost piney, with a mellow blonde cereal tone without going biscuity. Really blew my hair back how nuanced and prominent the hop quality was, and how flavorful for a 4% beer.

BVery (5613) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 24, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2013 Bottle. Slightly hazy light orange pour with a small spotty head. Aroma is weakly stale hops, maybe a bit of cardboard. Watery palate. Taste is okay.

Aroma is bread and light citrus. The flavor is light citrus, fruit, biscuit malts and a lightly bitter finish. Due to the English malts and hops, it somewhat tasted like a bitter, otherwise it was a basic golden ale.
