A friend brought this home from Mexico and shared it. From notes.

A - Poured golden and bright with a two finger fluffy white head. Good lace and a half finger of retention.

S - Grassy, fruit, grain, peach. Fruit punch. Nice.

T - Peach, grass, grain, sweet fruit.

M - Light body, medium bitterness, medium carbonation.

O/D - Decent stuff. Flavourful, but maybe a bit artificial with the fruit punch notes. Bitterness seemed a bit high for the style too. Drinkable, but nothing too awe inspiring.

Pours a golden straw color medium clarity, little carbonation which disappeared very quickly. Very sweet fruity aroma with a bit of hops on the nose. Very dry taste but sweet at the same time, slight bitterness! you can tell somehow it was dried out with sugar. Overall not the best example of a blonde ale. Its a bit to bitter

My first from Cucapa.

A: Pours a clear dark golden/blonde color. Small white head that dissipates quickly and leaves behind no lacing. Small amount of carbonation bubbles released.

S: Lightly hopped aroma with a bit of floral and grassy aromas. Some biscuity malt and a light sweetness. There is a very faint funky smell as well, sort of like a skunkiness.

T: Nice sweetness, lightly hopped - on the floral/grass side again. Biscuity/doughy malt base. Slightly dry finish.

M: Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

O: A solid beer from Cucapa, hopefully I can find some more of their offerings while I am in Mexico.

Long live the burgeoning Mexican artisanal / craft brewery culture! Here they offer a flavourful and genuinely pleasant lower alcohol blonde ale.

Beautiful slightly hazy amber colour with reddish undertones. Decent carbonation and satisfying mouthfeel, with a pleasant bitter sensation during the finish. Subtle, but slightly floral aroma with actual hop evidence (and no corn!).

Taste focuses on caramelized malts and fruity hops - light mango, with faint citrus in the finish.

Not as complex, rich or well balanced as their superb APA, but a much lighter ABV ale and a true pleasure to enjoy. Definitely one I'd be proud to offer to anyone looking for "an American blonde ale", or pretty much any style outside of a hop bomb.

A: pale blond, with huge amount of carb, generates a rich creamy, dirty white 2 finger head, nice retention, some waste left behind.

S: biscuit aroma, some sweetness and grassy

T: really nice taste, better than expected. there are no sweet notes, a bitter taste is present all sip long, but is not too hard, the aftertaste reminds you to have been eating a nice bread, dry finish

M: this could be a daily beer doesnt matter if its cold, hot or warm, nice pick for all year long

Golden amber color with mimimal head retention and minimal lace for an ale. Aromas of malts, sweet citrus, pineapple, a little roasty. Tastes of mango, pineapple and melon with a nice balance of hops. Good body for a golden ale. Finishes semi-dry and with average bitterness for the style. Nice beer for barbaques.
