This is a clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer with subdued sweetness and a pleasantly refreshing tang in the finish. Because of the low hop bitterness and dry, light body, this beer is easily mistaken for a lager or light beer. These qualities make it a great summertime beverage. This beer is brewed using our local pure water without any additives. This beer was our very first recipe. It was our introduction into craft beer. We brewed what we wanted to drink, and this quickly became a favorite among our friends and family who werent ready for the more brutal styles on the Bent Brewstillery beer menu. We make this beer our own by using richer Munich malts to give it a more complex and deeper flavor. This beer is best when fresh.

While attending an event owner Bartley Blume mentioned this was the first beer he made home brewing. Thats apparent. Retire it. Odd blonde/amber combo. It doesnt taste like a blonde, so why name it that? Its not hoppy and lacks that nice sweetness blondes have. Watery, thin. This beer has an identity crisis. Pass.

Can. Pours light amber with foamy white head. Nose is lightly floral with a touch of honey. Flavor is mildly sweet, backed again by mild floral hops and finishing with a nicely calculated balance of grainy honey sweetness and very lightly bitter notes of hop resin. A well executed blonde ale that should please just about any palate, enough of a hop bill to keep it from becoming bland.

kramer (6658) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Can. Pours a mostly clear gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly sweet with a bit of citrusy hops and a slight huskiness. The flavor isnt the most exciting, but its clearly well made and a pretty strong effort for an Amber Ale. It has a fairly sturdy body for the style with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty good stuff.

Pint glass at ward 6 with rosskyle. Dark gold and clear with small head. Sweet and spicy for the style. Heavy honey. Not as bad as expected.

islay (2577) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2015
4 oz. pour, on tap at the brewerys taproom in Roseville, Minnesota. Consumed on 5-14-15. Pours a dark gold with nearly white head. Nice, fruity, floral aroma. Nice, fruity taste. Better than I expected. Cracker dry. Not bad. Soft in the palate. Light body. Palate effects work for this beer. In fact, overall, it works for what it is.

Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear golden amber with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has musty grains and bread notes with a touch of straw underlying. Flavor is full of straw with bread and grains notes.

Bottle. Gold pour with a small head. Syrupy density and corn. Not bad, but not good either. Meh.
