look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Pours an opaque golden hue with a short white head that quickly thins to a ring.

S: Some peach, orange and mango in a faint nose. Also a bit of malt, pine and grapefruit rind.

T: Perhaps past it's prime, taste is on the malty side, if a bit stale. Some orange and grapefruit peel comes through, along with a touch of pine. Not so much hoppy as it is bitter on the finish.

M: Medium bodied, not really smooth.

O: I am surprised, given how good some of their beers are, that this is so mediocre. Would not recommend. I need an IPA.

Raul indulged on some of this bro lager because the homie next to him ordered it. Now, obvi Blondes aren't Raul's thang (hoodrats too - Raul just doesn't dig em!) - anyway...

Like Charlize Theron, it's ok for what it is, but Raul wouldn't want to take it home to mama. Decent color, taste is grassy like a Texas knoll... Aite, but never again.

Bye bye!

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Pour is transparent golden yellow with a tight foamy white head. Nose is solid, fresh grain, faint dough, solid hop presence being fairly grassy with a light spice to it with a touch of lemon. Taste is decent, the grain presence is a bit lighter, flavors are slightly muted and less integrated. Hops are herbal and grassy, spice is a touch stronger as is the lemon. Finish is highly carbonated with a light lingering bitterness and light body.
