2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with about a finger of white head that leaves a thin coating on the glass. Aroma is crisp malts and orange. Taste is very light and malty, with some slight hop bitterness to balance it. Some honey in there, too. Overall just kind of odd... not bitter enough to be a pale ale or pilsner, but not really light enough to be a blonde ale. Interesting, but disappointing.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz single bottle from Total Wine & Spirits - Gilbert, AZ. Medium golden and pretty clear in appearance with a white head and light lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, light floral/spicy hops, light honey and a touch of fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding mild grain sweetness and a light hop bitterness. Light to medium body with a lingering, light dry finish. A little bland and boring, but it’s clean and easy to drink. Not bad overall.

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.
