2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear pale gold with a white cap. Aromas of fresh hops, orange slices, grains. Crisp mouthfeel with apparent carbonation. Easy drinking as it should be. Big bitter smack at each sip. I was not expecting that. Bitter, peppery, sweetness is short and fleeting. This was not the refreshing drink I was expecting it to be. This had some harshness to it, that I don’t think belongs in this light simple style. When I want some bitterness, I’ll reach for a IPA or hoppy PA. With a Blonde, I expect sweet flavors, light crisp feel, and an ease of drinkability. This was not that. Not my cup of tea. Pass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a medium head. Slightly sour with some bitterness. Tastes like a cross between a wheat beer and a pale ale, with none of the benefits of either. Not very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with a bit of white head. Nothing much on the aroma, just some clean malt and a light hoppiness. Taste follows, light, clean, very much resembles a lager but with a more intense hoppy bitterness. A light and clean tasting beer but nothing to remember.
