Robe blonde très claire surmontée d’une mousse blanche qui s’estompe. Arômes légers de céréales. Saveurs légères de céréales. Finale de houblon amérisant.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUN 15, 2006
Cask at the brewpub. Murky yellow gold with a creamy off white head. Lovely lace! Floral hop nose, very light sweet malt. Very mild malt flavor, slightly sweet. Easy bitter finish. Disappears quickly from your glass - while the mild character of this beer is clearly aimed at the masses, it is well made and tasty!

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Pours gold with a decent white head. Smells surprisingly hoppy for what it is. Tastes slightly bitter with some malt presence.

Light golden in color with a small white head. Moderately bitter, with a nice hop and malt balance.Finishes clean and dry.

DYCSoccer17 (3301) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 21, 2005
Draught at brewpub. Citrus in the aroma with slight orange notes and some banana yeast flavors as well. Pretty aromatic for the style. Transparent golden/copper color with a small white head. Bubbly, carbonated start with banana yeast flavors. Finishes dry with some citrus hopping. A bit too carbonated. Milky flavors come in at the very end.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 1, 2005
Mild fresh hop aroma is floral and lightly spicy. Bright, clear, golden body with low white head. Fresh grainy malt with floral, spicy hops and fair bitterness and some very nice fruity esters. Medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Sampled at the brewpub with MartinT, muzzlehatch and Rastacouere.

Rastacouere (6122) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Clear straw, no head. Very light nose, balanced grain and cereal nose. Typical light quaffable body shows more of that frequently encountered grainy yet balanced well made beer taste in the good brewpubs’ basic beers.

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 29, 2005
Grassy hop bitterness and light cereal husks proffer dry and subtle pictures...Not much to say, but a tasty pint for the house blond ale...

Nuffield (3665) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2004
Golden color, fruity aroma (grape, raspberry), moderately fizzy, a titch of grassy bitterness (ah, the Hallertau?). I thought this was a rather palatable beer in its style.

Sample. Yeah, well I got the sampler. Yeah, well I'd already had a few of the offerings, yeah, well, the barleywine wasn't available in the sampler platter. Yeah, well, so I had to get this one to round out the five. Am I done yet? Oh, no, I have to write something about this beer? Something constructive? Not necessarily? Ok, now you're talking. Boring, pale golden, grainy boring stuff. Oh there's a bit of hops, the body isn't bad, but honestly for me this was just nothing special. Happy now?
