Bottle thanks to MaltOMeal sampled on 12/13/09: Pours a transparent deep golden with a pillowy froth of off-white head. Aroma of lightly toasty pale malts and some floral hoppiness. Starts with decent fullness for the style with a drier grassy hop flavor and a touch of toasty pale malt. Finishes smooth and bittersweet, very drinkable and refreshing. A nice golden ale.

12oz can from Whole Foods. Pours a hazy golden body with a quickly dissipating head. I see floaties!! Aroma of light sweetness, rind fruits and some grass. Flavor mirrors the aroma: lightly sweet, very mild nebulous hop bitter, biscuits and light citrus flavors in the end. Clean, crisp refreshing finish. Better than expected.

12oz can courtesy of thickfreakness. Pours a dirty dark orange with a huge white head. Aroma is surprisingly hoppy, with slight generic fruitiness, and, for better or for worse, a dank urinal aroma. Flavor has a modest hoppiness at first, then subtly sweet malt finishes it out. The hoppiness wakes up the warmer the beer gets. Thinner mouthfeel, watery neutral finish. Overall, fair to good.

Pours a golden orange with a nice, one-finger white head. The beer is slightly hazy. The aroma is wheat, lemon, malt and some honey. The flavor is very nice, with some citrus and honey and biscuit malt. I also get a little caramel characteristic in the flavor. The mouthfeel is medium and very creamy. Medium carbonation. A great blonde ale and it is nice to see a brewery actually try and pack flavor into a beer of this style, instead of just brewing a watered-down beer, calling it a blonde ale and targeting BMC drinkers.

Can Pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. The head is froathy and deminishes at a slow pace. Good size but lacks good lacing. Aroma is faint but I get sweetness, hay, and some bubble gum. Has a soft carbonation. The flavor is clean. Not much depth but not bad tasting either. Has a light body and a watery texture. The finish is light and not much of an aftertaste. Drinkable but not special.

degbert (1776) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2010
Very easy drinking blonde ale, cool-fermented. It’s crisp, it’s well-balanced, and has just enough hops to make it interesting without being a huge bomb o’ bitterness. My complaint is that it’s almost too easy-drinking; very little stood out with the aroma or palate. It wasn’t bad -- in fact it was enjoyable at the time -- but it was unremarkable.

Can de Kaggie: Pours school bus yellow with a big fat white head. Smells sweet and candyish, hay and banana, and whipped cream. flavors are hay like with essence of fruity esters, like apricot and papaya, and some soft, balancing bitterness in the end. Nicely balanced with no off flavors. Not bad for what it is.

Refreshing, good beer for the beach. Don’t see a lot of microbrews coming in cans but these guys do it and it seems to be working pretty well.

Chickencoop (188) - California, USA - DEC 17, 2009
The first point and really only valid point i’ll make here is cans are much easier to jam in your suitcase and survive the trip, no broken bottles that leak all over your chones, nuff said. I liked this beer, refreshing, not much of an aftertaste, citrusy and clean. Can is retro and all so way to go with that if you like that stuff, pick some up.

nimbleprop (8709) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 14, 2009
12oz can shared at the DC Local tasting. Pours a hazy golden, yellow with a creamy, lacing white head. Aroma is sweet and grassy. Flavor is sweet, some light citrus, grass. Finish is crisp and slightly sweet.
