2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with about a finger of white head that leaves a thin coating on the glass. Aroma is crisp malts and orange. Taste is very light and malty, with some slight hop bitterness to balance it. Some honey in there, too. Overall just kind of odd... not bitter enough to be a pale ale or pilsner, but not really light enough to be a blonde ale. Interesting, but disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a mostly clear yet somewhat hazy yellow color. Half finger white foamy head that dies at a decent pace and leaves some adequate lightly clingy lacing in rings.
The smell was sweet corn but not overbearing, light hops.
The taste had a mainly sweet corn-ness, no aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light, sessionable, and the carbonation is good for an American blonde ale and good for me as its slightly smooth and somewhat clingy around the mouth and tongue.
Overall, I say this is a good blonde ale worthy of coming back to. Its nothing over the top, but hey, it did go well with a Sonoran hot dog that I had in Tucson area while visiting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Raw honey and some light pale grains. Cloudy orange with a beige head. Nice and light with the hops lightly flavoring and bittering, while still offering a light sessionable ale. Although not an exciting style, I like this interpretation.

A blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a light corny malt with faint hops, boring. In mouth, a typical Mexican lager, faint corn, so-so. On tap at brewery.

12 oz from total wine. Pours a light yellow color, typical blond/golden color. Very muted hops flavors with a somewhat larger than typical malt body and honey sweetness. Aroma is slightly spicey. Finish is grassy bitterness. Pretty unassuming.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear golden color with an off white head. The aroma is floral with lots of pine. The flavor is interesting with lots of evergreen, pine and florals. Nice mouthfeel and finish. I could drink more of this session blonde. Pretty nice.
