COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A clean, crisp blonde ale with a light malt body and earthy, flowery hops. Pretty much a one way ticket to Cold One City.

Draft - Some sweet fruity grainy notes. Clear gold with a decent white head. Light fruity sweetness and yeasty notes. Odd.

Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Blond- gold color with barely any head. Deceptive for having cereals flavor and very low hopping;; the mouthfeel is dry.
Clean, boring Pale Ale.

On tap at the Alibi Room, pours a clear pale blonde with a small white head. Aroma is fairly dull, with straw and crackery malt. Flavour is clean and actually fairly flavourful for a blonde, with notes of cereal malt, crackery notes and a little straw. Clean and balanced, but ultimately boring. Okay.

Tried it first onsite at the brewery in a tasting glass. Once home I tried in a 35cl glass and what a difference. Far better experience. This blonde is full of flavour. The malt is there. Yes the carbonation is light, but itís a blonde. I absolutely love that their beer is unfiltered. IMO it makes the appearance richer and more appealing. Itís quite drinkable, goes down easy.

DuffMan (8808) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
Bottle, shared with Rockley. Hazy dull gold, lively white head. Yeasty, phenolic, and fruity-- in that order. Not a great blonde ale, too much plastic and band-aid.

Lagerboy (1808) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2013
Bomber. Clear honey yellow, white foam vanishes completely. Mild sweet malt aroma. Taste is not too sweet malt, some citrus, lightly bitter hoppiness. Soft to flat carbonation, yet surprisingly tasty makes it: MLF (More Lagerboy Friendy) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Iíve gotta rate more locals! Failing at my responsibility recently. Bomber. Pours gold, not much head. Light malt aroma. Malt taste, a bit of biscuit. Somewhat estery, sadly. I like the crispness in this style but didnít really get it here.

On tap at shelter restaurant in tofino. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a medium white head. Aroma of pale malts, grass and flowery hop esters. Taste is sweet pale malts, cereal and earthy hops and a nice crisp and clean finish. Lite hop bitterness to it that suits the style nice easy drinking sessionable blonde ale.
