Blonde Ales are not usually something I drink but I found I really enjoyed this one. It poured a golden amber with a big frothy white head and plenty of fruity malt in the aroma. For a lighter beer it had a nice full creamy mouthfeel with hints of fruit and apricot that I found appealing. This is not a complex in your face beer, but something that is light and refreshing with enough body to keep it interesting. A great beer for our hot Texas summer days.

12 oz can into tulip. no canned on date.

A: a lot of haze on a orange/blond body. head is bright white and bubbly. way too much haze for the style.

S: a slight oxidation. a lot of chewy pilsner malt. a little bit of sweet, bubblegum-like fruitiness.

T: similar to the nose, an obvious oxidation, but not to the point of un-drinkability. some grain. certainly in the finish. very limited bitterness.

M: average carb on a light body.

D: all-in-all not too shabby. eliminate the haze and the oxidation and you have a solid drinkable blond from this Texas brewery.
