This is a crisp drinkable blonde ale. Nothing too exciting, but a good Summer beer.
8/30/2012. From bottle. Golden yellow pour with a white head. Aromas of yeast, malt, hops. Bitter, hoppy flavors with earthy notes. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Draft at sb. Pours a hazy medium amber with a dense and creamy platinum blond head. Honey and floral nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Honey and chamomile mid palate with a mild sweet finish. Zeswaft (1773) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Meh, it’s a style that I don’t expect much out of. There’s nothing distinctive about this one either. Tastes like a watered down pale ale. Light bodied, mildly hoppy. hesh27 (2) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 30, 2012 does not count
This is a smooth tasting blond that goes down very quickly. It is very refreshing and light. Two Beers has done some infusions with this beer that have been very tastey as well. 22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - JAN 27, 2012
Brilliant pour, sparkling with a decent amount of foam. A very light candy-like caramel aroma and neutral malt. Relatively clean tasting with a relatively neutral hop aroma and flavor. Hops however do present a slight woody and earthy note along with a bit of pine/grapefruit. Light bodied, well carbonated, and refreshing. There is however a very slight slickness on the tongue, even with good carbonation. This is a very decent Blonde ale but not extraordinary nor special.

Pint @ The Traveler. Smells like a typical blonde ale. Tastes entirely weird. Like roasted vegetables and walnuts. Palate is fine enough, but can’t get past the veggies. Just meh. jerich01 (16) - USA - JUN 9, 2010
On tap at 74th Street Alehouse - Had a "toasted" flavor that seemed somewhat distracting against the hop levels and a bit surprising in a blonde ale. slacktart (3) - USA - FEB 1, 2010 does not count
One of the best easy drinking Blonde Ale’s available. It has the complexity and full flavor to please even the most hop-headed beer lover and yet it is delicate and subtle enough to allow almost all to enjoy. The finish hangs around creating a conflict of satisfaction and a desire for more... delicious! gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 25, 2009
On tap at Ray’s Cafe in Ballard. Wasn’t very impressed. The aroma is primarily of spicy hops--very little of the maltiness others noted. The glass actually poured fairly cloudy, so wonder if something was wrong in the taps. Bitter finish lingered.
