Pale yellow with good, foamy, white head / Clean nose of grain, honey, and resin / Medium body, soft carbonation, a touch watery, hint of sweetness but mostly dry with bitter finish / Mild flavors of grain, biscuit, honey, and resin / Much like a pilsner.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Bill’s Pub in Mundelein. Pours vibrant yellow with some of a white head. Aroma has some lemony fruit, some earth and bread. Taste is of crisp sweetish lemon with hay and biscuit. Finishes smooth and light, with a bit of length. Faintly sweet and fruity, without a lot of distinguishing characteristics. A nice summer-hot-day brew and fine enough for having with some pizza.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Mundelein, IL). Pours a rich glowing golden hue, rich healthy glow, with touches of haze. Golden glowing flashes keep up, with a frothy brighter white head atop. Dies to a loose film, thicker ring that laces small. Aromas are crisp pale bready malts, cereal grains, touches of bread yeast. Some mellow grass, spice, and clean sweet bready essence. Initial is mellow sweetness, a lighter end of the spectrum preaches bready malts, crackers, cereal grains. A mellow sweetness and touches of earthy and grassy hops with just a touch of spice, mellow touches of crisp bready, dry, with just a faint waft of toasted malts. Backend is clean and dry, gentle crisp sweetness is balanced well by a gentle earthy hopping. Clean, refreshing. Nice.

Draft at Tighthead and a growler fill. Pours a nice gold with a lasting white head. The nose is quite clean with some light fruity esters and some faint grassy hopping. Clean malt profile as well. On tasting, really crisp and refreshing with welcome fruity notes. Very well fermented. Balancing bitterness and crispness to the malt. Really great Blonde ale.
