3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light haze but not too bad. Medium hop aroma with subtle malt in the nose as well. Hoppier than expected for a blonde but good mouthfeel otherwise. Nice malty flavor once the hops fade.
Draft at the brewpub.. Pours clear golden with nice white head.. grainy with just enough hop bitterness to balance.. Decent enough standard blonde Darkmagus82 (2302) - - NOV 8, 2014
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a hazy orange color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading rather quickly to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of wheat and grain with a decent showing of a yeasty aroma. Other lighter notes of an orange citrus and some lemon are there as well, with just a hint of grass and coriander rounding it all out.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt taste mixed with some wheat notes. Along with these flavors are some other tastes of a lighter orange and tangerine sweetness with a hint of caramel and banana mixed within. The citrus grows stronger as the flavor advances with the sweet gaining a little bit of strength, but with most of the new citrus coming in the form of a grapefruit and lemon flavor. Other yeasty flavors are also present more from the middle of the taste with them brining a hint of a coriander spice. In the end with the transitions in the taste that occur, one is left with a moderately sweet, but nicely bittered and balanced blond taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower to average side. For the thicker biscuit and yeasty tastes the feel is spot one, although for the citrus a bit more carbonation and thinner body may have made for a more refreshing feel overall. All in all the feel was pretty good overall.
Overall – A nice easy drinking blond with a good balance. Quite tasty.
