2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Draft @ Blue Corn Cafe in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Initial waft was pleasant and sweet, lacking usual skunk from other blondes. Slightly hazy with very little carbonation. This is not a crisp pilsner, but a medium bodied lager with a slightly viscous texture.

GABF. Gold pour, white head. Typical crisp blonde. Very faint hops, light toasted grain. Nothing incredible, but very clean and nothing offensive.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft @ brewpub. I’m pretty sure this is a lager, not a blonde ale. Has a pale clear hay color with hardly any aroma except maybe some sweet malts. Really watery and thin. Has almost no flavor, like a light beer or diluted beer. Tastes like wash :(

Straw. Big bubbles. Doesn’t look good. Slightly grainy aroma with mild continental hop. Mild bitterness. Herbal hops are also a bit cheesy. Typical bland blonde ale.

Sample at GABF. Server called it a lager? Clear light yellow with average white head. Aroma of cereal malt with some floral hops. Light and clean taste. Just O.K.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Who listed this as an ale? - this is a friggin’ pils - anyway, tap at the downtown location - fairly clean, with a light honey sweetness to it - fairly smooth - medium-bodied - some peppery noble hops - a kind of metallic character that I noticed in all of their lighter beers - okay, I guess.
