2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottle - Pours a hazy straw color and has a grainy malt aroma. It tastes of sweet, bready malt with a bit of hops. It’s light bodied and drinkable but bland to me. It’s not really my thing.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a dark orange, hazy with minimal head. Aroma of over ripe fruit, but not quite rotten with a side of vegetables. Not clean. Taste is initially peppery with some crackery malt but otherwise is pretty flat, undercarbonated, and not good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
April 27th, 2012 - In retrospect, I probably should have started my sampler line of Mission Brewery’s brews with the Blonde, not the Bohemian Pilsener. But I was hasty, and excited to try a new brewery. But now that I’m actually writing the notes, the blond was not exactly pale and effete. From this baby-faced, light straw colored beer comes a nose sloshing with apple cider vinegar punch, and a puff of cinnamon. The spiciness isn’t baking spices, but its related, reminding me of mulled cider. The flavor is similarly distinguished by the cinnamon, and tastes like apple sauce or cider peppered with the stuff. The carbonation is aggressive like their Bohemian Pils, but cools its heels much quicker, revealing a touch of wheat and lemon in the aftertaste. It’s a flavor filled kolsch, and solid on the palate, but perhaps a little monotone and heavy on the apple notes.
