18 mar 2016, tap at Valiant. Gold, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is sweet, light straw and mild lemon. Thin body and mildly fizzy. Straw malt, some lemon, some wild flowers. Ok. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - SEP 7, 2014

orange clear pour. Aroma of honey, buttery wheat. Tastes big butter, tannic big hops. Lots of flavor for a blonde, slightly thick pal BlackHaddock (7235) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Large sample from Tim Bekmaz (Sales rep) at The Clay Oven in Irvine California on 14th July 2014 at a beer and Indian food evening. Deep golden hue to the body, clean white crown. I can not pretend that Blond Lagers are one of my favourite types of beer but this one was fine. The nose was slightly citrusy with a floral undertone. The taste followed along in a similar way and had a decent bite to it’s flavours and palate. The malt content is there and semi-sweet in nature to add extra depth and balance the brew nicely.

Pours bright dark gold with aslight white head. Aroma is a bit spicy herb. Backed by pale malt. Med body, maybe. The flavor is too sweet and distracts my thoughts. Makes me think of East Euro lagers. There are bold tastes and flavors, all seemingly sweet, and I’m hard pressed to find the hop I thought I smelled. Not my thing at all. giantkiller (7) - - MAY 12, 2014 does not count
If you want a crafty style of lager this is for you. Perfect balance of crisp and clean taste with an elevated abv. Hops are a bit more prevalent than most blondes, bit I prefer a little hoppiness. Would drink again. And again. And again. beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
Pours a dark shade of yellow. Quite smooth. On point for what I expect from a blonde. Simple and tasty. One of my favorites from the Valiant line. brokensail (16440) - Dublin, California, USA - SEP 19, 2013
On tap @ Valiant. Clear golden pour with a white head. Smells like hot dogs and candy. Corn, grain, and more corn. Really kind of off-putting savory aroma. Flavor is sweet sugar, corn, and grain. Grain husk, pennies, and white grape juice.
