4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma - Fruit and some spice. Smells crisp and fresh with just a tinge of alcohol content present. Smells better as the glass empties.
Appearance - Clear and golden with a nice 1 finger head that persist throughout the majority of the session. Light in color to match the summery flavor.
Taste - A medium amount of bitterness for a blond ale, but absolutely welcome. The hoppy scent is aided by the hoppy finish that lingers. Bitterness leaves a fresh taste that persists, but not too hoppy to resist throwing back a few. Tastes floral with a sweet caramel malt in the background. No off flavors I can recognize.
Palate - Light and playful on the palate. Bitter finish that lasts, but isn’t unpleasant. Light body, overall lighter beer with the perfect amount of carbonation and flavor for a summer day.
Overall - Great beer that fits in well with hoppier golden ales. Akin to Victory Prima Pils in the bitter light ale sense, but clearly a different family of hops. Will be drinking this again.
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Bottle at Thanksgiving 2017 in Washington Township, NJ. Aroma is mild biscuits, citrus peels. Taste reminded me of a mild American Pale Ale. basaywhat (314) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - NOV 8, 2017
12 oz bottle. Pours a straw or light golden color with a nice white head that doesn't last long. Nice crisp malt aroma. Biscuit taste, the hop flavor is a nice bitterness that adds to the crispness. alexmate (307) - South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 5, 2017
Hazy yellow colour, decent head. Taste is of lemon, grass and pine. Has a slightly sweet wheat taste associated with Belgian, German and French beers. Nice easy drinking, but lacking punch. 330ml can - Price Paid: £2.19. Bacchus66 (1006) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2017
From tap. Hazy yellow with a thin white head. Pale malt, light hops, grassy notes, bread. Moderate carbonation. Long smooth finish with an interesting earthy note. Nice. 17Beer (450) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2017
12 oz bottle. Hops grass and pils scents. Pours a clear gold with a big rocky white head. Lacing. Nice crisp hop forward but balanced flavors of grass, malt and hops. Nice medium astringent finish. Super drinkable.

Pours golden with a decent head.
Grassy tones and malt on the nose. Taste is malt with some citrus. Finishes bitter. Nothing offensive here, but a bit boring. Voodoo (716) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2017
Pours a clear golden with little head......aroma of sweet bread.....taste is clean, fair mouthfeel, crisp finish, pale malt flavor comes through with little else....points for being an easily drinkable brew albeit little else. commonshawn (1340) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2017
12oz can. Straw color. Plain aroma. Taste is a bit skunky. Light medium body. Finish is dissapointing. Might have been something wrong with it, but didn’t enjoy it. NachlamSie (3598) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 9, 2017
Pint at Atomic Cowboy. This is a pretty clear golden ale. A little woodsy hop nose has mild notes of citrus and crackery malt. The mouthfeel is on the fuller end of the style, but it’s still light enough. Flavor has notes of dough, seems predominantly pilsner malt but there’s a little something extra. This isn’t overly hoppy for a blonde ale, but has a solid bite to it. Finshes medium dry. katrinaez (2358) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2017
Golden color and earthy hop aroma, light hoppy taste, a little grassy, easy summer drinking, bottle.
