Darker than golden amber, adequate white head with ample lacing. Nose of cracker, flowers, citrus, and chalk. Taste has all of the above with a slight skunk character. Body is light to medium and leaves questioning my recent trip to Albany all together.
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a golden amber with a small white head. The aroma is heavy on malt with some caramel. The taste is just like the nose. A really good beer.

Bottle pours a hazy copper golden quick fizzy light tan head. Grainy light malt flavors. Some hop character and fair bitterness. Some wet paper malt notes at the end. DiarmaidBHK (4907) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2016
Draft at pastoral pizza. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Not much on the nose. Solid leafy hop notes on the tongue. Finished clean. Solid but not spectacular.

Pours amber brown. Aroma of barnyard and wet dog. Fizzy, light to medium body Malty and lightly sweet, clean finish with no bitterness. KyotoLefty (10264) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2014
Tap. Amber colored. Earthy nose, lemon, grass, chewy malts. Rounded, estery, fruity flavor, peaches and oranges, some biscuits. Decent drinking beer, though nothing special.

Tap at Devens grill, nice bubbly light bodied stuff, sold as a pale ale, but blonde golden works for me too, nothing offensive here, good and quaffable. rondphoto (4448) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2013
Clear copper with a good two-finger head that shrinks to a full cover, dots and streaks of lace. Sweet malt opens things; carbonation joins in as it moves through the palate, allowing just enough hop bittering to balance things at the finish. Very unassuming, but a solid choice for food and for a long night’s session. Very easy to drink. Recommended. luttonm (6273) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2013
From tasting at the Brewery in Westminster. Wry light pale, some mild indistinct hops. Dry malts. good old style but really boring example of it. asheft (3082) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
Sourish aroma of fresh wort and weak, possibly not so fresh hops. Almost clear copper under a thin, lacy, white flannel blanket. Sourness also in flavour, that is significantly oxidized/cardboardy and with a metallic feel. Perhaps this beer wasn’t stored properly. Medium body, medium carbonation, sour, cardboardy finish. freeofthoughts (688) - Raytown, Missouri, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Tap pours mostly clear deep golden yellow with white around the rim. The aroma is light and sweet of pale malt. The taste is bittersweet pale grains with a tiny touch of hop dryness. There is a simple sweet grainy flavor but it is not really very tasty, it is however more full bodied than most blond ales which makes it more palatable.
