look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad in Carlsbad, CA.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy off-white head that settles to a thin cap on top of the beer. Foamy rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and some slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate after each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty and easy to drink but nothing that really stands out for the style.

On tap at PP OB. Snifter.

A: Yellow gold with a frothy white head.

S: Saltine cracker and biscuity malt. Dry and lightly earthy. Faint apple notes.

T: Lightly sweet grain and biscuit. Soft apple and pear in the background. Very low bitterness. The finish is dry and crisp with a touch of honey flavor.

M: Upper light body with upper medium carbonation. The mouthfeel is dry, smooth, crisp, and sticky.

Overall: A simple but enjoyable Blond.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

On tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: Pours a honey color with barely any head. Slight wisps of white on the surface.

S: Really not much of a smell at all. Faint hints of honey and maybe a touch of malt.

T: Not getting a ton here either. Sort of tastes like watered down honey with a bit of grain thrown in as well. A bit of a bready malt flavor comes in towards the finish. Not my favorite that Pizza Port has done.
