jhliesen (831) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Bottle--starts with an off putting aroma and no head in the pour, oh oh. Kind of a yeasty taste backed with some fruit. Probably a bad bottle, but Blonde isn't my style so I don't know if I'll re-rate. Mixed pack from Ingles. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
