3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tall Boy Can simply labeled "Blonde". 4.9% ABV/20 IBU.
Naturally blonde in appearance with an inch of white foam that dissipates quickly. Aroma is barley, citrus and sweet malts. The flavor follows the same pattern with plenty of toasted grain and malt with some citrusy hops notes around the edges. The body is smooth and moderately creamy with strong carbonation and dry, mildly bitter finish. Overall, a fairly decent session Blonde.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from Malt & Vine. Can says simply "Blonde". Not even an ABV. Pours hazy gold with a fizzy white head. Aroma is bready/corny. Med body. Flavor is bready. Better than the aroma. Itís a little bit bitter. So this is Scottish how? A Tennents clone? Beats Bud anyway.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewery taproom. The beer pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily to a film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of biscuit, hops and sweet malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, mild hops and a touch of fruit. The finish is somewhat sweet with a bready malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

On tap @ Hilliardís. Pours cloudy dark straw yellow. Aroma is lightly roasted malts and a hint of citrus. Taste is medium earthy roasted malts with nice hops on the back. Well done and surprisingly full bodied for its color.

Growler from the brewery -- thanks Matt! Pours light yellow, somewhat cloudy. Yep -- itís a blonde, alright. Corn and breakfast cereal grains, and not a whole lot of them. This one felt very one-dimensional to me. Blondes shouldnít have to be bland.
