Bottle pour into nonic pint glass from Cigarette City. Appearance is slightly hazy orange with fair sparkle, 1/2-finger width foamy white head with poor retention and minimal lacing. Aroma is fruity with caramel malts. Taste is sweet fruity, malty mix--almost like candied sugar. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, soft-to-average carbonation and sweet finish as taste. Overall, rather one dimensional. OK. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 23, 2016
Quite strong and indeed thick. NIce to drink but not as refreshing. Malty and very nice in golden features. Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Keg at Mellow Mushroom Charlottesville, 10/6/14. Pours a golden amber with a medium sized creamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of nuts, honey, pale malt, cotton candy. The taste is honey, pale malt, floral hops. Medium bodied. mansquito (6971) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Cityfresh Associated Supermarket, Bushwick growler ($8): Pours yellow with a white head. Aroma is hops and grains. Taste is a little bitter, but the flavor and the hop profile were a bit flat. This beer is a little boring, but I guess that blonde ales are often a bit flat and boring. glennmastrange (2930) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Tap. Light to moderate grain for the malt, perfume and flowers for the hops, light soap for the yeast, with hints of peach and paper. Head is small, frothy, white with fair lacing and is mostly diminishing. Color is clear light amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and light to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a lively carbonation. Not much double in this American Strong Ale but a pretty nice refreshing beer overall.

The aroma is cereal grains, somewhat unpleasant. The appearance is old in color, clear, white head. The flavor is cereal grains, light malt sweetness, ok overall. The finish is light noble hops. Not a great beer. Ok overall. trapped (3651) - New York, TURKEY - JUL 5, 2013
Drought. Clear yellow with foamy off-white head, slight hops aroma, sweetish taste with little hops flavor, low carbonation, abrupt finish. Good with spicy food but not much else. ChainGangGuy (4932) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 4, 2013
11 ounce pour - $6.25 at Taco Mac in Woodstock, Georgia. j12601 (13188) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 6, 2011
Appearance: Lightly hazed, golden body with a very thin, white head.
Smell: Somewhat deficient aroma, only smelling very lightly of grain, white bread sans crust, distant wildflower honey, and florals.
Taste: Light pale maltiness, a tad grainy, with a golden syrup/soft honeyed sweetness. Lightly floral hop quality with a minor spiciness. Relatively light bitterness. The sweetness soon fades for a mostly dry, smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A bigger blonde without becoming so double-fied or imperialized that it’s a cloying, gloopy mess.
On tap at Birdsall House. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Sweet candy and grain, floral candy. Floral and sweet, lightly grainy. Smooth, light caramel, a touch empty. Big grainy bitterness, smooth overall and decent enough. msante79 (2244) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap at Lazy Boy. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma and flavor is mostly grain with some floral hop and citrus notes. Pretty easy drinking. Didn’t think the ABV would be this high.
