2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
"Not bad for what it is, a slightly hoppier than usual golden ale. The hops are hay and grass, the flavor ever so slightly sweet and quite light. Decent food beer."

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. A little bit of grainy sweetness, low bitterness, and not much else. Relatively clean--not perfectly clean, but drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery in San Marcos, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear golden with a tiny remnant of a head that leaves a trace of lace. The nose has notes of grass and grain. The flavour is medium sweet with grass and grainy malts with just a hint of honey. The finish is moderate in length with continuation of the grass and grain notes. On the palate, it is light-medium in body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a fairly unremarkable golden ale. 2013-03-22

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
A pretty insipid blonde ale. Watery, buttery, undeveloped. Yet somehow the head brewer thinks it is worthy.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of butter, straw, and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, butter, and straw, leading to a lightly bitter finish. I think it is off - but why then serve at the brewpub?
