These guys stay true to their roots. Another example of a style done well. Nice simple aroma. Lite taste. A bit thin but nicely dry on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at the brewpub. Clear gold with a small but lasting head. There wasnít a whole lot of aroma coming off this one. The taste was cracker, herbal and slightly spicy hops, and biscuit all backed up by a firm but not over the top bitterness. Very crisp and clean. I only ordered this because I was driving and it had a low alcohol content, meanwhile my friends gorged on Storm King and Hop Wallop from a cask. Not a very exciting beer but probably the best Iíve ever had in this otherwise ho-hum style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This offering of the style had to be the best Iíve tasted! It poured a bright and light golden color with a crystal-white head. This beer left a sticky and lasting lacing around the glass all the down to the very end. The aroma was very apparant and crisp, with an eye-opening hoppy and citrus clock-in-the-face. It was also very well-rounded with a balanced touch of bready and yeasty tones. The flavors were quite crisp and refreshing, with clear notes of citrus, grapefruit, bread and yeast. The finish was very clean and again refreshing, with tones of hoppiness, malt, earth and bread. This offering is definitely the best of the better that Iíve sampled in the last year or so. I donít think anybody has done a golden or blond ale better than this for long, long time.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Imperial Pint at Victory. Pours a very light golden with nice carbonation- and a fluffy lasting sticky white head. Aroma is like a very crisp clean subdued APA with a nice citrusy bite, some centennial, and other American hops but not over the top- they let some very crisp almost pilsner like malts to come through. Clean crisp refreshing flavor light pilsner malts, some pale crackeryness to it, fresh biscuits, pizza dough and a nice slight sharp floral and citrus hop kick throughout. Very clean and smooth finish. nice blond ale.

Draught @ Victory: This one pours a very clear, golden color. There is a frothy white head on it. The aroma is lighter. There are notes of malts and floral hops. The taste is good. Lighter malt body with a touch of floral hops. Very easy to drink. A fine session beer.
