2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into Red Sox pint glass. Dark golden color, very cloudy...medium head that dies slowly. Smells a little malty, but no real definitive nose. Tastes very full for a blonde. Complex, but more confusing than balanced. Sweet almost citrus undertone. Not bad, not great.

Draft at brewpub. Clear yellow gold, slight white head. Really has some nice character for a blonde. Yeasty. Pleasant light fruitiness. Earth, floral, grass. Balanced. Pleasant mild bitterness. Light, crisp, zippy. Nice! I’d take this over many other ’brewpub blondes’.

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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.
