clear filtered blonde body, thin white head, aroma is light floral spicy hops, really watery body, some light corny dms-ish flavors, finish tastes like nutra-sweet, not dry at all, really a pretty bad ale

Mission St. Blonde Ale has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, yellow-gold appearance, and minimal lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint sweetness, light malt, and sweetness. Taste is also mild, and one will encounter those elements described in the smell, with a low-level, but appropriate hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is light to medium, and Mission St. Blonde Ale finishes mostly dry and easy drinking. RJT

hockeybeerguy (1708) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Reviewed from notes, The appearance was a hazy golden colored body with a small white bumpy head. The smell had some yeastiness with pale and sweet malts, sugary corn. The taste was sweet and watery. The palate was light to medium, some harshness on the tongue, sessionable, no aftertaste, sticky finish. Overall, I don’t think this is something I need to have again, but could tolerate if served and this is all there is.

Pours gold, minimal head. Bland nose and mouth, some pale malt, balance. Light body. Not much here, but no off flavors and non offensive.

brewone (3) - Elk Grove, California, USA - FEB 19, 2014 does not count
12 oz bottle dated 2/4/14 Smells of orange blossom honey with a slightly earthy/spicy hop profile. Subtle esters of fresh cut pear and strawberries. The beer pours with golden hue and brilliant clarity, enough to read through. Thin white head that fades quickly. The flavor is similar to white bread crust with honey drizzle. The hops are in the background (as per style) but layer nicely throughout. Finishes dry with a pleasant juicy pear and light caramel. The carbonation is med high which helps dry the beer out, making it quenching and refreshing. Overall a tasty blonde ale with a great balance between sweet honey and spicy hop

RedSox2004 (1214) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Clear golden with a one-finger head and decent lace. Aromas of bready malt, red apples, and modest grassy hops. Flavor is mostly bready with light hop notes. Light to medium body, watery mouthfeel, generous carbonation, and a clean finish.

Tallahassee, Fl - Trader Joe’s - 12 oz bottle. Sparkling medium golden pour, tight white head. Aroma has some orange marmalade notes, a hint of light spice. Flavor has some light fruity accents, pears perhaps, some overripe apples, some buttery notes a touch of nuttiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Not bad.

Aurelius (4065) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Squat, west coast longneck. Clear yellow. Sweetish, doughy malt aroma. Tangy, some honey/syrupy malt tones. Medium bittering with some subtle honey notes. Medium body, long saazy type bitterness in the finish. Goes well with soft goat cheese and crackers. Not a bad deal @ $1.34 for the single. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.
