COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A good starter beer for those that have only drank the mass produced suds. The blonde is a light, crisp beer with a slight malt flavor and just enough Saaz hops to balance the malt sweetness.

Pours a pale yellow. A little cloudy. Big white head with lots of lacing. Weird smell to it. Slightly sour taste. OK, not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at PHX. Pours a clear, golden color with little to no head. Strong, grassy notes with some malt in the background. Light lemony flavor with a slight dry finish. Not terrible.

Draft at PHX. Yep it’s blonde. Decent creamy, malty alternative to Corona for the casual drinker. (#6023, 8/23/2015)

Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2014
Pint on tap. Clear light yellow beer, pale malts evident, good lacing, small head fades almost all the way. Served cold, so slight aroma tempered with pale malt aromas, mostly sweetgrains. Taste is balanced for the style, just crisp enough, easy drinker with an appropriate palate. Good body/thickness, just good simple beer. Best fresh.

Ibrew2or3 (7997) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
12oz can (labeled Barrio Blonde with an agreeable design to it) pours with a clear watery gold body and really no head at all. The modest aroma has sweet malts, faint grainy malts and a floral sort of vague spicy hoppiness. The nearly carbonation free taste has a mild degree spicy to floral hops, a sliver of lime and then sugary sweet maltiness.

resevil787 (123) - Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Draft at Rusty’s. Pours yellow with white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is light to moderate grain, bread, butter. Taste is light to moderate grain, malt. Light body. Easy to drink but not much going on.

JPDurden24 (1672) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Golden pour with a small white head. Bready and earthy, taste as a bit of a dry peach flavor, and it’s simply not very enjoyable.

wchesser (1845) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2012
Pillowy fading head on clear gold. Decent, but this is more like a full bodied pils than a blonde. Bready but soft nose. Some peach, malt, and grassy hops. Better than I expected.

BillKismet (3764) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2012
Crystal blonde, decent head. Slight peach fruity and candied hop nose accompanied, unfortunately, by some cardboard whiffs, which carries over to the body. Cardboard hop flavor. Not terrible, just bland.
