rugbydude05 (478) - Bridgewater, NJ, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2012
22 oz bottle, light golden color, straw-like doughy, malty aroma. Very little lacing on glass. Taste is bitter and light, refreshing finish with mild aftertaste. Good blonde ale.

Can from Total Wine, West Richmond. Pours pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is lemon, bread crust. Flavor is corn, bread crust, wheat, cardboard. Blah.

mansquito (5868) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 27, 2016
Total Wine Fairfax: this is a simple and easy blonde ale. Light bread, subdued hops, and light fruit. Golden clear body with small white head. Whatevs.

Capa (3021) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2016
A standard blonde ale. Clean and crisp with light cereal grain and mild sweetness. A bit of earthy hops in the finish. Solid.

Faint malt aroma. Golden in color with fast fading head. Light in body but very well balanced, smooth finish

slowrunner77 (11051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Standard blonde ale - grainy, lightly sweet and ever so lightly hopped. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing that makes you stand up and shout either.

12oz can poured into keg shaped glass. Canned on 3/15/16, 2 weeks old, so pretty damn fresh. There is no discernible hop presence on nose or flavor. Malts dominate with light oat-like flavors. On the nose, the malts are pretty husky and dusty. Ends with a cut straw flavor. Its very decent for a malty, under 5 abv, blonde ale. I would like a completely different beer, something lighter, crisper, and less malty. But this is fine for what it is.

mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Solid blonde through and through. Perhaps more hoppy than most. Im overlooking the slightly less flavorness, if you will, due to the incredibly low ABV. Overall, however, very well balanced.

penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2014
22 oz bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is slight sourness like a lemon yogurt, bananas, wheat, dusty, white bread. Taste is slight banana, a bit of sourness but not as much as anticipated from aroma, doughy grain, biscuit, wheat, slight citric bitterness. Light body, full fizzy carbonation, finishes mostly dry. Perhaps a bit infected but it kinda somehow works with the style.

luttonm (5448) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at Mountlake Terrace brewpub. Hazier than the golden ale. Super pale ale, soft body but still a sweet hop note, however light. Not terrible.

Total Wine in Pembroke Pines, Fl. Nothing remarkable , Yes, a working in the yard ale. Refreshing, but then again so is Miller Light. Does have a funky yeast aroma.
