bottle. Pours a hazy straw, a bit of sediment floaters. Thin white head. Aroma of yeasty bread or old socks maybe some hay. Soft on the tongue, leaves a faint memory of Belgium. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 9, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 Another group of bottles from this brewpub to bring back to Minnesota. Pours a cloudy pale golden honey with a white foamy head. Aroma of banana, walnuts, wheat and peppery hops. Taste of banana, stone ground wheat, and some spice. A bit watery aftertaste but better than your average golden ale. JK (6332) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2007
Thanks to Skyview for sharing. This isn’t bad. Probably the best blond ale I have had. Cloudy gold color, minimal head. Aroma and flavor are of fermenting grain, which actually works for this beer. badgerben (5349) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Light, hazy yellow color with no head. Faint aroma of honey. Very floral taste with a grainy finish. On the moderate side, but definitely a good Golden Ale. BDR (2535) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAR 30, 2007
California blonde color. Faint peach in the nose. Dirty grain and a little peach in the body.

12oz no date. Pours a hazy bright yellow with a minimal white head fading to a film. Aroma of old corn, some sweet malts, light floral hops, and a bit of dirtiness. There is a bit of tang in the flavor with corny grain and a little dirt in the finish. I don’t know if there was any bitterness at all in there. Minimal carbonation and a light body. auerbrau (3206) - Ithaca, New York, USA - JAN 30, 2007
Light lemon grain husk aroma. Mildly sweet and a touch wheaty. Some salty japanese cuisine notes. Pours a middle gold, clearish, with a rocky soap of white. Flavor is a bit sticky with some lighting metallic ringing, before moving into a sweeter, subtler apples and pears malt sugar run. Again, faint grains and mild sweetness. A tinge of hop dust brightens up the smack. Not terrible, not a winner. Thanks Brigadier! chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 14, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2007 Not quite on par with the others I’ve tried from this brewer but still quite good. Well balanced in an unusual way I have trouble articulating. The sweet malt end just fits with the hop/citrus/spice end. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2006
Draught sample at the brewery, mid-October 2006. Pungent-sweet aroma rising out of a hazy gold body with a lasting touch of head....honey, sweet malts and more than a touch of bready yeast make for some nice complexity in a lighter beer....body is much drier than I’d expect, lightly tart and a even sour to finish, thin pale malts and rather watery overall....still, not at all bad for the "Coors Light" of the lineup.

Breadlike yeasty smell, light body, good amount of carbonation, sweet and dry finish. A very well balanced, delicious, refreshing ale.
