ChadPolenz (1843) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2017
BBD: 7/15/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 18A Blonde Ale

AROMA: Slight sherry/cider-like aroma present. Some fruity esters. Hops still impart spicy/earthy characteristics. Minor caramel malt sweetness. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Dark yellow maize; slightly cloudy body. Moderate white foam retains and laces well. 2/3

FLAVOR: Mildly sweet palette with caramel background notes. Slight lemon sherry taste from oxidation on the finish. Low spicy hop taste and low bitterness. Faint underlying twangy/earthy note. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body and carbonation. Smooth, but not refreshing. Slightly sweet aftertaste. Seems too light for 5.1% ABV. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Not bad considering age of bottle and gluten removal processing. Fresh serving is probably spot-on. 6/10

TOTAL SCORE: 31/50

Bottle. Gluten free. 5/17. Good flavor. Not too much IPA. Refreshing. Good taste for a gluten free. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I do not know if it truly is gluten-free. But, it is a acceptable Ale. Very drinkable and enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Single 12floz bottle BBD 07.15.2017 ($1.50). Pours a golden color with a thin head in my pint glass. Smells faintly of hay, and tastes like straw. Light and easy drinking pretty much sums this beer up.

JStax (6995) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 19, 2017
12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. The beer is a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has grainy notes, some straw and honey as well. Sweet and grainy taste. Medium body and high carbonation.

Drake (14033) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle 12/16/16. Clear golden, large foamy white head, good retention. Aroma of bready malt and grassy almost skunky hops. The taste is grassy hops, bready malt, mild toast and honey. Thin, refreshing.

b3shine (9013) - Indiana, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle to pint. Looks solid; a mostly transparent apple juice with fizzy eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes slightly bitter and hoppy with soft notes of yeast. Mouthfeel is medium light-bodied and finishes with a bit of crispness. A decent easy drinker, and solid for being gluten-reduced/free.

2.6
Block (2894) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2016
Golden pour. Thin white head. Aroma is sweet as is the body. It's kind of bitter but not in a hoppy way. Bitter dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 19, 2016
On tap @ Black Finn. Medium golden, decent white head. Grainy aroma and flavour, a bit of toastiness. Lightly yeasty. Pretty plain.

2.4
Nekronos (4174) - Xalapa, MEXICO - APR 5, 2016
Very good and quite thick. Not so simple to drink and quite wheaty although it is not the type.
