"333" from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours rather dishwater gold with a white head. Aroma of mild - both bread and probably saaz. Med body. Flavor is something of a fruity pils. Not strongly fruity - but it’s there. Lightly bready and rather herbal hop. It’s bitter enough to push into a decent pils range, but this is an ale. Perhaps this is what happens with pils ingredients and an ale yeast. Might account for the fruit hint. Main attraction is the bitter finish - also it could pass for a clean beer. Sadly.

12 ounce bottle from The Davis Beer Shoppe. $6...yikes! The aroma on this is very nice with some subtle biscuit and doughy malts present. A light honey aroma is also present. Hazy, cloudy, unfiltered straw-colored body with a medium, strong fluffy white head present. Good lacing. Blondes should be filtered, no? Starts with a, earthy hop bitterness, which is fairly aggressive. This is followed by some light, cereal maltiness, which tastes a lot like pilsner malt. Finishes crisp, dry, and even more earthy with a significant hop kick. There is a very nice, creamy, perfect carbonated body on this. An enjoyable beer for summer, but at 50 cents an ounce, I can’t really justify buying this beer again. I have a feeling this beer will sit on the shelves for awhile, and that stale product will not be a good thing...especially with a hoppy beer like this. My bottle was bottled in 01/2012

Bottle from Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours cloudy golden with a fluffy white head and a standard pils aroma. There is a rich carbonated pilsner malt flavor with a floral hop flavor and a mildly bitter dry finish.

From the Bottle. Light golden in colour with a slight haze, very crisp and lively mouth feel. Subtle spice, honey sweetness with the perfect amount of bitterness on the finish. I want another!

Pours a hazy golden honey color with a huge white head...outstanding lacing and retention. Aroma has a leafy hoppiness...slightly soapy and delicate...spicy...a bit of hay...somewhat like a saison. Flavor has a belgian yeasty fruitiness and nice hoppy notes...german accents...spicy and delicate...leafy. mouthfeel is light and lively with a slightly sweet, grassy finish. Very nice blonde ale!
