3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at local bar. Brew was a bit more tart than I would like. Also was kind of hazy, which I found odd for a blond ale. Hop presence was minimal and maltiness was more a sweet mellow taste, nothing interesting. A good session brew, but I think it has some minor flavor flaws.

Markey’s, New Orleans tap: Pours light golden with white head. Aroma is pale malts, a hint of hops, some dough. Taste is much as would be expected. It was really mild, but had a nice and creamy texture to it that contributed to easy drinking. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft on tap at the brewery (New Orleans, LA). Pours a nice hazy dulled golden grainy hue. A gentle touch of glow but a bit flabby in color. Frothy creamy offwhite head atop stays as a decent layer, ok lacing overall. Aromas are a bit grainy and earthy, subtle bread dough, straw and kiss of citrusy orange. A bit of floral, bread yeast and gentle sweetness. Faint coriander. Initial is similar, lighter end of the fold in body with cleaner malt bill. Safe bready malts, a bit of cereal grain and dry gentle yeastiness into the back meet some gentle hop character, faint waft of orange and subtle kiss of coriander peeks in at times unannounced. Cleaner, refreshing, was an easy one to find at the bars around town. Solid enough lighter offering from the local brewer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a mostly clear, classic golden color with a short white head. Unpeeled green banana and white grape nose. Refreshing, crisp mouthfeel without becoming too astringent. Taste approximates the nose with a bit of tropical guy sweetness and grassy notes included. Not a bad blonde at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught: This one poured a clear, golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white foamy head that didn’t last long but did leave some lacing. Decent but lighter aroma. Malts, bit of corn, faint breadiness. The taste is half decent. A bit of malt sweetness, bit of the corn, some graininess and faint grassiness. Not sweet, but no bitterness at all. Taste is OK. Not exciting, but not bad either.
