Rich, Smooth, dense foam, moderate head, slightly pale. nice. Good choice for breaking in Bud drinkers to what they might have had.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - FEB 25, 2004
12 oz bottle. Very light and clear amber, small dying head. Very light nose, bit of malt here, touch of hops there, but not much to hold onto. Pretty sweet, lightly smoky, just a touch of "country" earthiness, but it's no bier de garde that's for sure! And yes, I know it's not trying to be; it's trying to be a blond ale, and I guess it succeeds at that for what it's worth.

I was expecting more from this, got it on tap at TGIF. Better then a regular macro but not much aroma and weak flavor.

Clear light orange color, with a thin white head. Ends slightly sweet, and then gets sweeter after that.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2003
An enjoyable, rich aroma. The body isn't bitter in the least, and yet is fairly malty. Bronze colored, this brew is fairly sweet and pleasant. A blond ale indeed, and an extremely enjoyable one boasting some grassy, herbal notes.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - AUG 3, 2003
On tap at a restaurant in Wellfleet MA. Served clear bright gold with a light head. Everything about this beer was light. Light aroma of pale malt with a bit of citrus and hops. Crisp and light body with mostly malt coming out in the flavor. A refreshing beer and great for the hot weather but nothing really outstanding about it.

MaBeer1972 (1269) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 25, 2003
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2003 A pretty bland-tasting beer for a microbrewery. Clear light copper color, mild aroma. Very mild flavor.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 6, 2003
On tap. Nice golden color. Mild floral hop and citrus aroma. Medium body, citrus and malt flavor, pretty well balanced. More flavor than most blond and pale ales I've tried, and easy to drink in a good way. Complemented some spicy food well, and great for warm summer days. Solid.
