I was a little disapointed in this beer. i am a big fan of Atwater brewry and had high hopes for this one.
Pour was good. little head, light orange very cloudy, looked good.
smell was ok. defiantly got orange right off the bat, a little corriander background.
the beer was a little colder than it shoudl have been, flavor was good, smooth drink, i am very disapointed in the body. Very thin feel that does not pack a punch, goes down smooth but left feeling underwhelmed.
i give this a 3.0. i would not buy this beer at the store for enjoyment, however i would have again if offered at a gathering where it was accessable vs. the Buds and the Millers.

Had on-tap at Boat Works in St. Clair Shores, Michigan.
I got this after the keg of the beer I did want blew. I didn't exactly want it, but I hadn't had it, so why not try it. Dirty Blond has an orange juice sort of color with a lot of haze. Nice little head on top of it. Decent lacing. It looks pretty good. The smell and taste are almost the same, but the smell is a bit better. This tastes like I imagine a combination of Bud Light and orange juice might. This has a sort of flavor that doesn't shout "QUALITY"... it tastes somewhat cheap. But, it's inoffensive and easy drinking. The mouthfeel is quite nice on this brew, which is good, because I'd not recommend this beer if it weren't for that.
The main problem I have with this beer, as stated, is that it tastes cheap. There's not much of a hop presence at all. I taste sorts of corn and cheap grains and such. Not bad, not particularly good. This would be a fine option for people trying to step into craft beer, as it's inoffensive, tastes like it could be a Shock Top sort of creation, and there's virtually no bitterness.
Average at the very best.

It's a good beer but it needs a liitle bit on each corner:
A: Could have a little more gas to get some foam.
S: Some smell would be nice. Very plain.
T: Surprisingly good taste. Very rich but still light. Could drink ten a night.
O: a solid beer
