One of those beers that kind of sits on the fence with me. While it wasnt bad (had an interesting honey flavor), it didnt really excite me too much. Slightly cloying... and almost too sweet. Just a little unbalanced... but not bad.

DO NOT confuse this for a Belgian blonde, as I erroneously did when purchasing. Hop and yeast aroma precede the hop and yeast taste. Unoffensive because there is no flavor to offend. Is this what water on the west coast tastes like?

Lawnmower beer at its finest. A real snoozer if youre drinking for flavor. Little in the way of any characteristics, which is somewhat fitting for the American Blond style The sweetness, especially as it warms, because apparent and leads to a sloppy finish. Serve it ice cold and youve got a refreshing brew.

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2003 One of the best blonde ales I have had, though most blondes suck, which could also be true in another category. As it says this beer is definetely refreshing. A light tasting beer that still remains solid and demands respect.

Decent summer brew. Interesting malt flavors with some caramel and toasted notes and a little bit of Saaz bite. Nice quencing brew with some fruitiness as well.

There was nothing here at all. A glorified version of a macro. This was a disappointing beer all around.

fishman (350) - Philadelphia, USA - AUG 19, 2001
Orange with a thick lacey head. Light fruity aroma with a slight, but not overwhelming hoppiness. Pleasant taste, decent attempt at a blonde ale, with a mellow and unoffensive personality.

Tasted like well water from a hole in Grandpappys back yard. Some graininess, but not enough personality to either offend or inspire. This, frankly, bored me.
