3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Poured a golden blonde topped with a fluffy foam head. The aroma is faint but I am able to detect a presence of grainy malts and a minor scent of perfume. The drink is crisp and comes across as balanced with a bready grain like flavor of malts and just a touch of hops. Rather boring beer but then again I didn’t expect much after I had already their brewnette and redhead and was not impressed by either. Expensive price to pay for beers that did not delivery.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
They say this is a pilsner but call it a blond to keep up w/ their hair color naming scheme. I shouldn’t care about that but it bothers me. Honestly, this does seem like more of a blond ale than a pils anyway so I guess it shouldn’t matter. It is cloudy yellow w/ a white head of small bubbles. It has a strong doughy malt note in the nose along w/ a touch of grassy hops. Taste is a bit sweet w/ slightly oxidized malt notes. This is full bodied and a bit heavy for the style but not bad. It finishes with some lingering sweetness and grassy bitterness. Top to bottom, this strikes me as more of a novelty label than a good beer. I don’t see myself buying this again.
