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.

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

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?

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.

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.

Not bad but nothing to write home about either.

Lacks the bite of their ESB, but very enjoyable!

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2004 Decent summer quencher. Combines nice mix of subtle malt with wheat and Saaz hops for a pilsner like finish. Worth trying.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2003 Pretty average Blonde. Not bad beer, though. On the same scale with, say, Killian's.
