3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Burlingame brewpub. Clear straw color with a medium thin white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of wheat and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, wheat and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Not much to say about this besides incredibly boring. Little to no aroma, palate matches aroma. Mouthfeel is about the only good thing about this.

On tap in Burlingame. Clear golden with a medium sized white head and some lacing. Aroma of light malts and citrus. Taste is light malts, grainy, herbal and plastic. It was OK, but didn’t taste right.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a clear yellow/golden color with a large white head.
S: The nose is fairly light overall. I get a decent amount of yeastiness, some corn, floral hops, and a bit of bread and malt sweetness.
T: Starts off with lots of metal, corn, and yeast. A bit of hop bitterness as well as some actual floral hop flavor. There’s a mild skunk to it, too.
M: The body is medium with a medium to high level of carbonation.
D: Another poor example of the style. I don’t know why breweries insist on making crappy blonde ales.

Had this as part of an 8 beer flight. I thought this was a decent blonde. It had a great flavor, which quickly disappeared without leaving an aftertaste. Good light-ish summer beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Burlingame. Not much aroma at all. A woman next to me at the bar just received a plate of very smelly buffalo wings, so I had to turn away to catch the aroma of the brew and even then, would usually get a strong whiff of wild wing sauce. Clear gold with lively carbonation. Diacetyl notes and some hop zing. Not bad; some pepper. Drinkable with enough hops to keep the palate interested.
