3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden-orange in color. Very crisp, light and lively on the palate. Sweet - but light - malt base. Aromatic and flowery hops were nice. Mild bitterness in the clean and dry finish. Not overwhelming with flavor, but easy to drink.
Draft at brewery. Light golden body, hazy and milky, small ring of white head. Grainy aroma and taste, light and palateable. not too much here, but its a golden, so wasn’t expecting too much. adrianehendee (56) - - OCT 18, 2016

On draft at Bend Brewing. Nose is sweet malt and slight must. Flavor is thin, resembling a lager, but the palate is thick and less fizzy than would be expected. Gription79 (2891) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - JUN 23, 2015
Draft at the brewery. The aroma is subtle, the malts are all I can detect. The flavor is bready, there is a soft sweet maltiness. Very little hop character. Beer is clean. rosenbergh (11532) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 3, 2015
Draught at the Bend Brewing Co, Bend, OR.

Clear golden colour with small white head.
A weak aroma of sweet malt. Mild hoppy flavour with some fruity notes. Unimaginative.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper orange color with a small white head. A light grainy nose. Smooth, biscuit, oranges. Dry earthy finish. slowrunner77 (12060) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2014
"It has a lot of hop flavor and aroma without being excessively bitter."
Ummmm, no. I can’t see this as a pale ale, as it even underhopped and really boring...for a blonde/golden. Not understanding the hype I’d heard about this place. Color by numbers beers at best. Experiment_Ale (1098) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUL 11, 2014
Draft at Bend Brewing Co with Taylor. Pours golden mustard, no head. Aroma is light pilsner malt, sweet citrus notes, hint if hops. Taste is grainy, hay, soft earthy bitterness, bready. kidmartinek (5000) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Golden like apple juice with no head. A little spicy and a little apple juice sweet aroma. Mild malt and bitterness with a little sweetness. Medium body. maekchu (3917) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 17, 2013
Draught at the Bend Brewery Co. brewpub in Bend, OR. Very light grassy aroma. Pretty clear medium straw color. Mild sweet maltiness / a little bit buttery in mid (diacetyl?) / finish is smooth and minimally flavored. Thin body. Not bad, but not very inspired either.
