sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - JUL 5, 2012
Light aroma of corn, no carbonation, very light pils color, clear, light and crisp. No sweetness at all. Very balanced!

b3shine (8737) - Indiana, USA - JAN 13, 2017
Draft to taster at the Fishers brewpub. This is listed as "Indy Blonde" on the menu, and is 4.5% abv. Looks solid; a transparent gold with white lacing. Smells and tastes of mild hops alongside a mildly semi-sweet backbone. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied and finished crisp and clean like a lager. A solid example of the style.

Homer321 (4845) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Draft at source. Nose is mostly grainy malt with not much else. Pour is bright clear yellow with small white head that laces well. Taste is pretty bland with just a touch of bitterness. Pretty boring.

ben4321 (6252) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Sampled at Ram-Rosemont, 10/26/15. As Chicago Blonde. Clear gold color with no head. Corn and adjunct type aroma / flavor with some grains as well. Light body. What youd expect.

@ RAM Chicago. Pale yellow, small white foam ring. Malty aroma and taste, quite fresh actually. (Chicago 201510)

mcberko (16954) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 26, 2015
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a clear dull blonde with a small with head. Nose brings out straw and stale bready malt. Flavour brings out cereal malt, some straw and a light sweetness. Theres nothing wrong with this. Clean and drinkable, just unexciting.

WABeerFiend (413) - - JAN 20, 2015
Draft at the Puyallup, WA location. A: Flower and graham cracker. A: See through yellow. Very bubbly. T: Flower and graham cracker dominate. O: This was a very, very simple beer even for a blonde. Im glad that the food overpowered this because there wasnt much flavor anyway.

BVery (10201) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. For a simple accessible blonde for the masses at a chain brewpub, this does not suck like many do. Clear pale gold pour with no head. Fairly sweet grain aroma and taste. Crisp palate.

"gotta go against the grain here. rarely if ever will i give a blonde a super high score, but if it scores anywhere near the "better" bigger styles, thats a plus, and I thought that (for a blonde) this beer was quite good. crisp, with a nice cascade hop finish. everything but the thin feel was above average." two years later i see what all the negativity is about. totally different beer. 2.2-3.2. sigh...

Travlr (23989) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at Humperdinks in Arlington. Very pale yellow, no head or lacing. No detectable aroma. Plain bitter taste. Throw this one back.

nuplastikk (6141) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
A pretty clean house light beer. Some dry, earthy clusterish hop tones. A touch too sweet, sugary for the style. Not the kind of beer Id ever revisit, very macro-straightforward.
