COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic rich golden color with velvety mouth feel. The sweet kiss of malt character is in delicate balance with the mild taste and spicy aroma from imported hops.

Poured light golden color with white head that settled quickly with little lacing. Aroma is light hops. Taste is light malt sweetness and light hoppy bitterness. Carbonation is moderate and body is light. An average blonde ale.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Yeasty nose, with a touch of hop and banana. Warm gold color. Not much of a head on this one. Soft mouthfeel, not too carbonated. Slight tartness in the taste. Not great. Bland blonde.

Gold with fast fading white head. No aroma, either good or bad. Refreshing but bland. Not much here but a faint hop end

Medium dark gold color, medium head. Light bodied ale. Lots of flavor. Subtle malts and hops. Mouthfeel is smooth and round. Smooth taste. Finishes very well. Finish is clean and very smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter
