APPEARANCE ? looks great for a blond ale. Very vigorous head. NOSE ? extremely light earthy hop notes, what you?d expect for a blond, but even lighter. FLAVOR ? flavor is very light and crisp. Lighter than most blond ales. Some small bit of hop character is almost in there, but you have to grasp for it. NOTES ? could be called platinum blond for the looks alone. Revision: I?m drinking the last half of this with a meal, and the taste improved substantially. The bittering hops come through much more pronounced, and the overall taste is better.

This beer pours a clear pale straw color with a medium foamy white head that dissipates steadily to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Short strings of lace. Aroma of fruit, grassy hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of mild grassy hops, biscuit malt and a bit of fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Average overall.

superspak (5597) - Michigan, USA - MAR 30, 2015
12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 6/16/2014. Pours hazy bright golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Minimal earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, pear, apple, wheat, cracker, biscuit, light honey, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Good balance and robustness of pale malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; with slight dryness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present on the finish as expected of 4.7%. Overall this is a good blonde ale style. All around good robustness and balance of pale malt, fruity yeast, and light earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Tap at Williams. Pint glass. Very light gold with tiny head. No aroma. Neutral in every sense but doesn’t have the bad elements of other domestic Crap beer. Pretty average but not terrible.

3.1
stevoj (5043) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Smooth, light and mildly sweet. Slick mouthfeel, tastes strongly of honey. Light golden with sweet finish.
