2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Maybe a little dark for a blonde ale. Thin body, yeast, lemon, honey. Pleasant hop flavor but no resin. On the hoppy side but well balanced. Nice seasonal but nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citra blonde ale. Pretty much as the name implies, easy drinking blonde with nice citra aroma. Not for everyone but pretty tame drinkable beer.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
A- Lemons, mangoes, grapefruit, peaches, pineapple, wheat.
A- Golden orange color, cloudy liquid, white head.
T- Tropical fruits, citrus, wheat, slightly sweet, balanced.
P- Light body, tart texture, average carbonation, smooth fruity finish.
O- I love citra hops and this beer uses them perfectly. A very smooth and refreshing blonde ale. Widmer Brothers nailed it with this one.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A: Pours a blonde ale with brilliant clarity and a transient single finger of off white foam which falls to nearly no sheet of the same. No lace.
S: Citra hops have lately become quite familiar to me, and theyíre present here. They are quite subdued compared to my recent exposure, but they are well applied in their tropical tastiness. Otherwise some underlying grainy malts are dry in character.
T: Lots of grain component, some hops are in here, but contribute little palate interaction. Grains are plain, unsweetened and raw tasting. A hint of flour.
M: Medium on light body with sharp and persistent carbonation. Dry finish.
O: The look and smell are nice, but the flavor is a substantial disappointment for me. One and done.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Red Hook/Kona/Widmer Brothers summer variety 12 pack purchased at Western Hills Kroger, tasted on September 20, 2013. Clear golden hue, nice fruity aroma with citrus and other fruit notes, medium fruity flavor with backround bitterness thatís a bit unpleasant. I donít quite get the high ratings but it would be a dull board if we agreed on everything, would it not?
