4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear golden yellow with a very bubbly white head which fades quickly. Aroma is slightly grassy, very subtle. Flavor has some strong hops up front followed by very slight malt and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Recognizable as a blonde, but with much more character than anything Iíve had in that category. I was pleasantly surprised by this and would definitely have it again. Perfect beer for the summer.

Old rate, its a pretty timid summer ale, light and easy drinking but lacing flavor and aroma.

12 ounce bottle from a mixpack, smells like a summer beer should, crisp hops, great citrus floral hops mixture, could drink a whole lot of these on a hot summer day watching the Cubbies blow a lead in the 9th... Great beer from Victory!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FROM NOTES: July 29, í12
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating.
A: Very floral, nice bitterness with lemon tartness. Light grain and wheat notes.
A: Pours hazy golden amber color with a nice 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Good spotty lacing clings down the glass.
T: Follows the nose, mostly spicy hops and grassy hops with a nice malty balance and some lemon peel.
P: Light bodied with moderate carbonation
O: A good, crisp summer beer that certainly drinks like a blonde but has plenty of flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured straw with a medium-sized white head. Aroma and flavor were floral, citrus, slightly spicy hops; pale malt, crackers; light lemon, very crisp; a hint of sage? Not what I think of when I hear "blond ale" -- and thatís a good thing. Light body, but lots of flavor. Zesty, drinkable beer. Once of the best summer ales Iíve tried.
