Has a clean finish. Creamy texture with white bread aftertaste. It’s a good beer. SanfordBrewer (1610) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Translucent gold with a dense white head. Medium body and carbonation.aracauna (3680) - Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2005
Aroma: bright citrusy herbal hops, lots of pale malt sweetness, and some fruity and spicy yeast esters.
Taste: pleasant citrusy hops, sweet pale malt, astringent water profile.
This actually isn’t a bad beer. Of course it’s never going to rate highly here. Light-bodied, light-colored beers don’t stand a chance around here. But it is really pretty good for what it is. The appearance really isn’t very promising. The pale gold body really would make it hard to differentiate this from a macro lager. The aroma also plays some tricks on the mind. If you gave this to me in a blind taste test I never would have guessed it was a blonde ale like the label claims. I would have pegged it as a really fresh sample of some Bohemian pilsner or one of the better, but less aggressive American takes on the style. The hops aren’t huge in this, but do stand up beneath the firm, dry straw/hay maltiness. Another example of ABC becoming a much better brewery than it once was and becoming a source of some solid session beers. ChainGangGuy (4926) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 17, 2007
UPDATED: FEB 10, 2008 Appearance: Pours a clear, pale golden body with a foamy, sudsy white head. Lightly bubbly.
Smell: Fine floral aroma with a touch of graininess and a tiny spritz of lemon.
Taste: Only a faint maltiness presents itself as the bulk of the flavor is made up of floral bitterness and a taste of lemon. Light spiciness. Semi-dry finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A solid blonde ale. Congratulations to Atlanta Brewing Company for recently taking the gold at the GABF for the Golden/Blonde Ale category. DarkSong (381) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with a thick long lasting white head. It has a pleasant aroma that smells a little of hay and honey. It has a nice crisp taste and tastes of citrus, pepper, bread and grass with a wonderful aftertaste. I really enjoyed this one.

Sweet aroma sort of like bubblegum with a nice dull gold color with just a hint of murkiness. Tastes very pleasant with a little bit of hops at the end. Does leave coating on the palate afterward as though your mouth was wearing a sweater still drinkable especially on those Hot-lanta nights! otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Appearance: light haze offers softness to freshly baked bread crusts, hay and straw. Voluminous bubbly head leaves a network of lace in its wake before settling into a blotchy meringue head. Swirls thick and lacy.
Nose: yowza. Bananas, tangerines, tropical smoothies. Doughy bready yeasty. Freshly cut green banans mingle with plantains. Refreshing. Oozes summertime in the tropics. Fresh bread crusts.
Palate: soft, airy, and quick – like a summer sea breeze carrying essence of coconuts, papaya, bananas, and oranges. Lightly dry bitter finish – citrus skins. Fresh, simple and delightful. Bread crusts mingles with pineapple and guava. Clean in the middle, frothy along the sides. Dew-dropped green grass. Coconut husks.
Final Thoughts: I’ve had very little experience with Red Brick and the one I did have was very underwhelming so I expected very little with the Blonde. Consider me pleasantly and tastefully surprised. Even now, an easy month later I can remember her like yesterday. May I have another, please and thank you.
