(Tap) clear, bright yellow colour with a small white head; aroma of sweetness, honey; contrasting dry, simple flavour with a long, light bitter finish

j12601 (13188) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 2, 2017
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Grain on the nose, soft musk and a touch of wheat. Medium bodied, soft grain. Thins a touch, cool and easy drinking, though not a ton going on here. But no big glaring flaws either. Just a fairly clean slightly crisp blonde. Soft musk and a touch of bitterness on the finish.

brokensail (16660) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 3, 2016
On tap @ Cosmic. Clear pale straw yellow beer with a white head. Apple and lemon on the nose with a pretty strong note of cereal/corn flakes. Funky sweat sort of aroma to it as well. Tastes like a mouthful of coins. Sweet apple juice, maybe. Really bitter and metallic. This is not a terribly pleasant beer.

Fatehunter (2622) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Pour it carefully, it wants to foam over. Three fingers of head with a slow pour, on a hazy straw body.
The aroma is floral and fruity. Nice.
The taste has mild lemon bitterness with good balance.
The texture is crisp but too much carbonation.
It smells great and would taste better if it wasn’t so carbonated.

bhensonb (15832) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours gold with a creamy white head. Aroma is very kolsch: bread/citrus. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very kolsch. Definitely bready in the finish. Fortunately Hermitage did a nice job with this, and it is surprisingly (Blonde Ale) drinkable. Yea for Hermitage.

Perfect for this summer like weather in winter. Refreshing with a slight buttery - Ness and hints have caramel and I picked up very light lavender notes.

3.6
joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 8, 2014
On tap at Naja’s Place. It pours golden with a small white head. The aroma is a nice blend of fruity hops and light pilsner malt. Some crackers and grain. Maybe a touch of noble hops? The flavor is nice and light with crackery malt, strong noble spicy and floral hops especially in the finish. Full body for the style with a dry finish. No off flavors. Nice summer drinker.

3.9
Ibrew2or3 (8860) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 29, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a deep gold slightly hazy body that supports a weak bright white head. The aroma offers up sweet sugary malts, a dash of lime like citrus and some floral hops. The taste starts with a hop bite from grapefruit, lime and floral hop bitterness and then heading into sugary maltiness. This is a nice hop forward session brew. I like it.

3.8
SDalkoholic (2434) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle from Bobar: Poured a golden pale lager looking liquid but was topped with a frothy thick foaming of head. The aroma hits me as strange and peculiar but then my nose quickly sniffs out perfectly caramelized malts that give off one of the purest smells of butterscotch that I have smelled since drinking an import from the UK. The smooth texture palate of this blonde and the sweet malt flavor and considering it only cost $2 for a bomber this is well worth the price for the flavor.

3.4
BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2013
10 karat pour with a small ivory cap. Slight grassiness, mineral, citrusy, hay. Mild maltiness as well. Drinkable but not memorable.
