beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - OCT 4, 2003
Yellow gold color. Small white foamy head. Aroma is grainy, grassy and slightly sweet. Touch of breadyness as well. A medium bodied blond ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are fairly spicy with a touch of grapefruityness, yet it is not very bitter. Its a blond ale, so the flavors are mild, but it does have some character to it, sort of like a very mild pale ale. Light and refreshing. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Light, citrusy, hoppy aroma, some touches of lemon and floral sweetness. Medium golden color, with a scant ring of bubbles for a head. Flavor is fairly hoppy while retaining a low degree of bitterness, with a blend of lightly sweet, fruity malt and some tart citrus and faintly herbal tones. Light-medium bodied, with a smooth, largely uncarbonated palate. Very refreshing. You won't find a Blond on too many people's list of favorites, but this is definitely one of the better ones.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Copper with a big white head. Nose slight, a bit lemony, some malts. Malty, nutty British character, some butterscotch, a bit earthy. Creamy and smooth.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2003
Draft. Tan color, some head. Nice hoppy aroma. Decent malts, tasty earthy hop flavors. Rather enjoyable actually.

grease (42) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 17, 2003
Heavy character for its looks. There is quite a bit of malt in the palate, and the hop balance is not at all bad. Good exception to the "hop til you drop" standard offerings for US pale ales. Good, simple beer without any spectacular or horrible quialities.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 5, 2003
Dark blonde coloration with minimal yet persistent fizzy head. Light aroma, but smell is there is quite nice: bread, pumpkin, cider - like a German house frau's kitchen! Interesting mouthfeel, an initial spritzy effervescence followed by an unexpectedly creamy texture - very compelling. Flavor is mild, vaguely reminiscent of Anderson Valley's Winter Solstice but not nearly as potent. This is just "ale," with no frills. This isn't going to blow anyone away, but it is a very nice pint nonetheless and very enjoyable.

Aurelius (5251) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Nice bitter aroma at the beginning, moves to a pale malt and very yeasty aroma. Good label, standard American twistoff bottle. Some cider, starchy, strongly acidic and hoppy. Finish is overbrewed, tinny and doughy with some off flavors.

Kaya161 (1139) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 28, 2003
Fruity yeast aroma. Light orange colour. Malt balanced flavour, with a late mettalic bitterness.

Cobra (1100) - - AUG 28, 2003
12 oz. brown bottle. Damned twist off cap. No freshness date. Poured out a deep golden color, with a fast fading white, thin head. Didn't have the decency to even leave a lacing down the side of the glass. Aromas of stale malts, and even staler hops. Slight cheesy aroma to it as well. Ringwood yeast makes it's presence known also. Some diacetyl present. Not acceptable in a pale ale by any means. Try again, Shipyard.

bb (9109) - Alamo, California, USA - AUG 25, 2003
This beer just lacks everything. No hops, no malt. Just a bit too tame. I wouldn't even call it easy drinking.
