Eh, doesn’t near compare to it’s pale ale cousin but then again I guess you can only make a blonde ale so interesting. I knew I should’ve bought a single. I’ll save the other 5 for when my coors light drinking friends come over.

Cavie (3780) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2009
Hazy orange pour, unfiltered. Slight aroma of honey, mostly bread. Smooth mouthfeel with a surprisingly good taste. Could be stronger but grainy taste prevails. The honey is only tasted after the finish but makes for a sweet aftertaste. Best thing out of Southern Star thus far.
