Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: armock on 10-25-2008

A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

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.

12 oz can served in a pint glass.
Light amber color; hazy; with a semi-durable head.
Light, watery body with medium carbonation.
Somewhat unappealing aroma with a better flavor.
Still very light flavoring. light citrus. Really needs more malt.
O: no reason to recommend this beer.

Good beer for those who like American Blonde Ales. I am not particularly a fan of this style but wouldn't mind drinking this one if there were no other styles available.

Good taste when you drink it but the aftertaste is not to my preference. The fact that it comes in a can is not optimal, I think that bottle would help the way this beer is drank.

A slightly cloudy, some lacing and two finger head down to a pencil sized head after settling
S bread like smell with a dank-banana aroma
T musky taste up front then to bread then lingering alcohol, bubbles throughout
O overall i feel this beer is great for someone who is not familiar with craft beer and is transitioning from adjunct lagers to the craft world. I feel I could use more malt to balance the back ends excitement.
