Hazy light gold, thin bubbly head. Some bitter. Very grainy and grassy, just blah. I figured Id be disappointed but the bartender assured me it wasnt anything like BMC. She was wrong.

chinchill (1713) - 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 dont 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!

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.

ben4321 (3812) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 1/23/14

Aroma: The nose is light and mildly hopped, some grass, light malts
Appearance: This beer has a clear yellow pour with a small white head on it
Flavor: The taste is much the same, it is mild with light malt and light hop bitter flavors
Palate: The body is light-medium, with an okay feel, but it is a touch off on the finish
Overall Impression: Overall, I just didnt find too much too love here. Its a simple and kind of dull EPA...

Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some grassy hops as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor, unfortunately, has some strong buttery notes. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
