Hazy deep copper and bronze coloured body with a thin off-white head about a centimetre tall, but a nice tinted body. Aroma of bright hops with a very bitter quality, but seemingly short-lived and a mellow malt presence, along with a touch of sugars noticeable in the nose. Light-bodied; Grassy and very herbal hoppiness noticeable up front with a big bitterness, but ending fairly shortly thereafter with a mellow malty flavour and a very grassy and herbal finish that shows a ton of character. Aftertaste is pungent and quite bitter, almost exclusively from the hops, but ends a few seconds later, when some of the malt shows through, but this is nice and relatively simple with the hops first, the malt second and only dry flavours on the end. Overall, a nice and easy drinking Blonde with a ton of character and a biting hop bitterness on the end - great to sample and well worth tryingj if you like lighter Ales. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Trader Joes in Washington (West End), D.C. on 11-March-2017 for US$1,50 sampled at home in Washington on 21-April-2017.

ryanscourt (1427) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2017
overall, has a pretty mild flavor. Poured a golden clear out of bottle. hoppiness is during the secondary tasting while the primary taste is more of a blonde ale.

Darwenus (1067) - Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2017
This isnt bad at all. Pours clear, light orange with average head and a lot of carbonation. The aroma is like other hoppy pale ales, a little bit of bitter, floral hop blends well with a smooth malt. The taste is very mild up front but on the finish the hop/floral combo from the aroma comes back a little stronger.

Cybercat (5556) - Georgia, USA - APR 5, 2017
Pours clear topaz with a thick, frothy, persistent porcelain head. Aroma delivers hay, resin, hoppy, and subtle sweet citrus tones. Flavor presents bold resiny hops, fruity, subtle fresh malt and hay tones; it is a little bitter and a little sweet. Mouthfeel offers good body and peppy fizz. Whizbang!

Skyview (5866) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 1, 2017
Sampled from 12-oz bottle. Pours a clear light pale golden colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some excellent lacing. Aroma of 3 cs hops, toasted golden grain malt and a touch of citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied with some earthy and citrus zest and a touch of grapefruit. Finish has a short spice grapefruit followed by some toasted golden grain malt. Solid golden ale with a shot of Mosaic hops.
