3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The basic blonde is, more or less, nothing special, but I found the blueberry/blackberry hop notes and mellow malt balance worked well. In a roster of multiple 4+ beers, this isn’t a highlight, but it is good for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewery. Draft at the brewpub. Clear bright blonde color with a small white head. Honey and grain on the aroma; subtle but nice. Honey flavor, like a helles base, with a grassy malt finish. Clean and crisp mouthfeel. Really solid blonde.

This healy beer is damned good. I don’t usually like blondes, but this one is good. It ranks with sante fe brewing’s dirty blonde

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ 49th State. Slightly cloudy golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma of light toasty malt and fruity yeast esters. Flavor is some sweet malt with a very light hop bitterness for balance. Light body with average carbonation. Nice beer, a bit sweet for a blonde but good malt flavor.
