This is a crisp drinkable blonde ale. Nothing too exciting, but a good Summer beer.

Meh, itís a style that I donít expect much out of. Thereís nothing distinctive about this one either. Tastes like a watered down pale ale. Light bodied, mildly hoppy.

This is a smooth tasting blond that goes down very quickly. It is very refreshing and light. Two Beers has done some infusions with this beer that have been very tastey as well.

Brilliant pour, sparkling with a decent amount of foam. A very light candy-like caramel aroma and neutral malt. Relatively clean tasting with a relatively neutral hop aroma and flavor. Hops however do present a slight woody and earthy note along with a bit of pine/grapefruit. Light bodied, well carbonated, and refreshing. There is however a very slight slickness on the tongue, even with good carbonation. This is a very decent Blonde ale but not extraordinary nor special.

Pint @ The Traveler. Smells like a typical blonde ale. Tastes entirely weird. Like roasted vegetables and walnuts. Palate is fine enough, but canít get past the veggies. Just meh.

On tap at 74th Street Alehouse - Had a "toasted" flavor that seemed somewhat distracting against the hop levels and a bit surprising in a blonde ale.

One of the best easy drinking Blonde Aleís available. It has the complexity and full flavor to please even the most hop-headed beer lover and yet it is delicate and subtle enough to allow almost all to enjoy. The finish hangs around creating a conflict of satisfaction and a desire for more... delicious!

On tap at Rayís Cafe in Ballard. Wasnít very impressed. The aroma is primarily of spicy hops--very little of the maltiness others noted. The glass actually poured fairly cloudy, so wonder if something was wrong in the taps. Bitter finish lingered.
