Malty and unpredictable, our El Rey Blond Lager possesses an appealingly subtle texture. A tart wheat and rye presence at the back of the mouth is tasty but fades quickly. A weet grain mouth-feel underpins it all, highlighted with a bit of a slight hoppy edge to make things livelier. Not a too light nor too heavy Premium American Pilsner that's compatible with any type of food.

A blonde to gold ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light malts, with adjunct and mineral notes. In mouth, again, that lightly peated malt with light hops, light bodied. On tap at brewpub, August 27 2009.

On tap at the brewery. This blonde ale poured with a decent white head and a floral aroma. There is a flat watery malt flavor and little else.

To be honest, this isnít a poorly made beer. I mean, there arenít any defects apparent (or at least that I could taste, aside from the astringent factor). The problem is...is that itís a boring lager. Nothing outside the scale of Budweiser or Coors. Aroma is nil. Couldnít get anything from the aroma, no matter how hard I tried. Appearance was a nice, clear golden color, nice head. Mouthfeel was thin, watery. Flavor was..again...nil. Almost waterlike in fact, but like the Wheat beer they make this too had a strange mouth puckinger astringency to it. According to the description, itís supposed to be there. So that alone makes it different. Not better, necessarily. But different.
