A very light blonde in color (obviously). A nice lager with a sweet edge; quite refreshing and enjoyable (even though I don’t care for lagers). Note: Called "Wind Blown Blonde" at the time when I tried it.

Draught at the BrewPub: Aroma of malt, flowers, and slight hops. Poured yellow/straw in color with a small, creamy, dense, white head that disappeared except for around the edges. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of grain, slight caramel, slight honey, and some pale malts. Light body. Lightly thin texture. Lightly sweet finish of grains.

ROGUE (2086) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 15, 2010
On tap at brewpub. Wind Blown Blonde pours a pale, clear yellow with a medium sized white head. A grassy aroma with light fruitiness in the background. Mild flavors of grassy wheat, malt, and a hint of hop bitterness. Smooth and crisp.

UPDATED: SEP 3, 2010 Tastes almost like a typical Bohemian Pilsener. Unfortunately, this is not one of my favorite types of brew. Nothing redeeming about it. I have had worse.

On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear liquid golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of fruit, grains, light hops and barley. Taste of barley, light hops and a touch of fruit.

bfeldmann (1048) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - APR 15, 2009
Growler during the eagles game. Aroma was of grain grass and fruit. Flavor was much the same little sweet for my liking. Good grass hop to it would have been a great lawn mowing beer. Not bad.

fredandboboflo (1570) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Tap at the brewpub, served in a Kolsch glass. Hot. Seemed the proper size to me. Aroma quite toasty and grainy. Flavor toasty with dry fruits, nice dry graininess, maybe a bit of strawberry. Full-bodied for a Kolsch, very crisp, very drinkable. Tasty stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 24, 2011 I previously commented that each batch was different but I am now so disappointed in this beer’s evolution that I no longer order it a the brewpub. Hop additions have been all over the map with the last incarnation being anything but a Kolsch. Go back to recipe 1 and count your medals. Please.
