2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into a pint glass... Straw-yellow color, almost transparent with some cloudiness to it. A thin white head that a minutes later only barely covered the surface.
The nose has a slight honey and dry hay smell. Not pronounced or particularly appealing.
The carbonation attacks the tongue.. but quickly lets up, still moderate throughout. The body is light. The taste is lacking taste. There is a slight malty flavor at first, quickly followed by an astringent bitterness. Not horrible, but...
Knowing that Blonds are not the most flavorful beers, this one was still a let down. Too carbonated and no identifying profile.
On tap at the World Beer Festival - Columbia on 01/22/2011. Clear golden yellow body with a medium white head. Sweet corn and spicy hop aroma. Spicy hop flavor with some pils malt. Medium light body with moderately high carbonation. crhensel (145) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Much hoppier than expected but very refreshing at the same time. Went excellent with a couple of slices!

Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is cracker and biscuit malt, light earthy hops with cereal notes. Flavor is malt dominant with light hops and bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation. OKplus (788) - Oklahoma, USA - FEB 17, 2013
A - Pours a straw yellow that is slightly hazy. Small head.
S - A fruity grain aroma, some honey.
T - Malty up front followed by a honey covered grain. The grain flavor is somewhat coarse. Finishes up watery and sweet. Aftertaste taste is an aspartame-like sweetness that coats the tongue. Also a slight metallic flavor.
This beer goes down extremely smooth and makes drinkability way high. Some interesting characters going on but nothing off-putting.

Draught at Big Easy. Clear golden pour with just a small head. Aroma was grassy with notes of corn and earth. Flavors were lightly sweet with hints of grainy malt and corn. Light bitterness with a tingly light moithfeel. Very tasty and drinkable blonde. finn1918 (238) - Georgia, USA - DEC 27, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Pours a nice golden with a 1-finger white head that fades quickly and leaves little lacing. Some visible sediment. Aroma is pine and citrus hops. Taste is very much the same; very light and sessionable. Has all the good qualities of the American light lager, with a very nice hop balancing. Also note that this was bottled with the "Beer from Around Here" label for distribution around the Atlanta area. Labeled as 4.6% abv. LiMuBai (227) - - NOV 24, 2012

12 oz. Pours a sunflower yellow with a white frothy head. Aroma of bread and caramel and leather. Taste awful. Taste like watered down lemonade without sugar. Sour/tart. Watery. Lots of carbonation. A little too much carbonation.
