Guess this is a new beer? not many reviews..

341ml bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance - basic golden yellow, hazy, small head that dissipates quickly, faint lacing

Smell - not really much scent - faint notes of hops, citrus peep, grassy, pine nuts

Taste & Mouth - hops up front, bitter finish, but not overpowering. Decent carbonation, lots of little bubbles on the tongue. Woody/pine nuts

Drink - not the best pale ale I've ever had, but a decent take on the style, worth a try.

Translucent and golden in colour, the Blonde Classique presents a thin layer of bright white head with some decent lacing. Lots of large carbonation bubbles visible.

The nose is of grain, a little slightly-sweet malt, tap water minerals and a bit of musty hops. Something a bit off I can't quite put my finger on. Nothing special really.

The flavour is pretty basic, presenting really nothing of interest. It's mostly just a watery, characterless malt, mostly absent of any sweetness and finished off with overly-drying, characterless hop bitterness. A bit of alcohol shows. That's about it.

The body is a bit on the thin side and carbonation a little high.

There isn't anything obviously wrong with this beer, aside from the fact that it's totally boring. While it seems they're attempting an accessible blond for the macro crowd, I can't say this is a significant step up from Molson, Labatt and company. I wouldn't buy this again.

Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a relatively large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light grain and cereal is refreshing without being overly complex. Taste is also a refreshing mix of cereal with a lightly sweet aftertaste. Body is about average for style with good carbonation. No brewing flaws but nothing really special either.

A- Whoa this is light. Like a pineapple juice/Coors Light colour. Poured gently but still got a decent loose head. Kind of hazy.

S- Some peach, lemon and grain. Not much in here. Kind of reminds me of a macro lager but with less nastiness.

T- That same woody, yeasty taste I get in most if not all the AMB beers. Nice zesty lemon hoppines with a pilsner bitterness.

M- This surprised me. A very interesting and smooth feel to this. Almost creamy. Finish is pretty dry.

D- Good. I'm enjoying this.

A very good beer to get you Molson/Bud buddies onto better stuff.
