ClutchMasterson (64) - Aiea, Hawaii, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Pours a light hazy golden with a 1 finger head which quickly dissipates. Aroma is a slight metallic with a sweet bread and hay and a hint of cheese. Has the same bread and almost butter cookie taste with a smooth malt finish and a slight bitterness on the back. Mouthfeel is slick and wet with light carbonation. This beer for what it is isn’t bad and is good for it being warm on the islands all the time. However, there are definitely better blonde ales to be sought out.
