San Antonio, TX - on tap at Blue Star. Sparkling Light-medium golden with a very thin snow white head. Slight funk to the aroma, not quite off-putting, but on the toe jam side. Flavor has a decent bitter citrus bent to it, a touch of spearmint, hint of saffron spiciness. Decent.

Draft to taster at brew pub pour light to avg gold with thin white head. Nose light pine and dank hop. Taste moderate bitter up front, followed by generic crystal malt. Taste like a hoped up light lager. Moderate bitter finish. Being from Cincinnati I was hopeful. But let down.

Light golden color with a lacy white head. Grainy aroma. Taste is a nice blend of hops. Not too intense. Dry. Thin mouth

chinchill (4327) - South Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at the brewpub in San Antonio. Appearance: Pours golden with excellent clarity. The semi-durable head leaves little lacing. Feel: Near medium body and medium carbonation. Flavor: Appropriately hoppy. Some malt flavor with a dominate input from hops. Medium bold for style. . O: good but not great.

This is a blond ale. It displays many of the same aroma notes as the pale ale, but muted. Its malty but thin, and easy drinking with a quick hop note at the end. Not a sophisticated brew - and I don’t think it was meant to be - but solid.

Horrible, terrible beer! It is like the distant cousin of Falstaff or some dollar beer you get at the convenient store. Zero head. Malty. Salty. Single bodied. Like a the first mix of a beer. Lacks flavor or any personality. This is not a craft beer by any means of the imagination! More like an embarrassment! Not worth your time or money!

llcooldave (1188) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Light coppery golden color. Slight citrus and toasty malt nose. Watery hops flavor with a slight metallic tang. Overall its not that exciting but at least is is drinkable and not offensive.
