Bright golden color with a bit of haziness from some light sediment. A quarter inch head of off white foam is on top,but quickly fades. Brussels lacing. Aroma is of light malt,rice, and perhaps some faint bittering hops. Flavor is light malt,rice, and some faint Saaz hops. This beer is daily light in body and fairly crisp.

Not as horrible as the label looks or the beer sounds. Pours a clear brilliant golden color with a bright white head, forms thin speckled lacing as it dwindles. Aroma has light biscuit malts with a light herbal hop in the back end, nothing overtly sweet or offensive here. Flavor has a creamy malts sweetness, with massive cereal notes and a bit of cooked veggie. Light herbal hops in the back end with some dry yeast cake chalkiness. Mouthfeel is light bodied with ample carbonation, a bit fizzy and a bit yellow nothing markedly better than anything mainstream or worse than anything out there that is super craft. Overall, it was bearable but nothing really exciting or well executed as a honey blonde lager.

Got this at the Party Mart just down the road from my house in Lake Mills, WI.

Pours a pale yellow color, quite a bit of foamy white head. Smells lemony sweet. Nice light bodied beer with a good clean taste. I enjoyed this beer. Very drinkable, I'll buy this beer again if I see it.

Pours a clear gold color with a medium white head.

Nose is an assertive banana/peach/yeast. Smells more like a Belgian ale than a blonde lager.

Medium bodied with a mouthfeel that is clean, fresh, crisp and with a citrus character.

Flavors are medium to big yeasty white bread with bitter grapefruit flavors and undertones.

Finish is a pleasant grapefruit-pine.

This is a very simple but well made beer and is extremely drinkable and would likely be pleasant for most. I'm a fan of much bigger beers and of extreme beers. Yet, this one, as simple as it is, was quite pleasant and appealing.

A: Brilliant clarity of blonde-gold coloring shows a moderately paced and spaced array of effervesce. The head is a thin frothy covering that needs help in retention with a minimal show of lace. I generally like my blondes dirty (hazy with protien).

S: Soft fresh hopping, fresh greenery and pilsner grains. Soft muskiness of oranges and lemons lies beneath.

T: Honey malt with a light zing of lemon and fresh greenery for hops. As with the nose ever so slight muskiness is observed, some graininess leaving the tongue with a touch of herbal and semi-dry lemon peel. Decent show of hoppiness by style regards.

M: Light mouthful, slippery buttery texture and feel. Carbonation is a bit quiet, would of benefited with a bit more crispness but seems to fair well with a lazy, laid back attitude perfect for sippin on the cot.

O: Overall not a bad tasting beer, certainly not a Belgian style or yeasty, but as a stand alone entry level light sippin tweener will suffice for one or two. Bought as a part of a sampler pack. average all around.

12 oz bottle poured into a Pilsner Glass. 3069 printed on the neck. No other info.

A - This pours completely clear golden yellow with a one-and-one-half finger white head. Decent retention and some creamy lace left on the glass.

S - A little spritz of skunky funk comes out of the freshly cracked bottle. Beyond that I pick up grainy, adjuncty smelling malts with a kiss of honey.

T - The flavor has the same small skunky hint to it with a kiss of honey. Again, it also has a grainy, dried corn adjunct flavor.

M - Very light-bodied and watery. A bit slick across the tongue and fully carbonated giving the finish a real sharp kick.

D - I'll never have it again. The Horny Blonde isn't their worst beer but it's not worth having. If, for some reason, you find yourself in a predicament where it's the only option, it wont kill you. Of course, after a few, in the morning you may wish it had.

Was about to brew a lighter blonde ale in this srm 3 range, so I picked up a bunch of different varieties for inspiration. This was my favorite, surprisingly. It was one of the lighter offerings, but it had that something different that kept me going back to it. It pours light gold with a .5" head that dissipates rather quickly but has nice lacing and a brisk, spritzy inner-carb... tastes like a decent macro lager with a nice funky yeast-kick. It's a weird almost cloying sour/sweet funk to it that makes it original and interesting. Let's face it - this style is hard to make interesting, but that yeast funkiness going on doesn't taste like a paulaner, but it does kinda remind of that original-funk quality that's nice and it does set this apart in a usually boring/bland category. It might be slightly under-rated here. Slightly. A good summer beer. Beef it up with a bit of grain of paradise bite and you'd have yourself a winner. And get rid of the twist offs - pls. don't like buying bottles I can't recycle for homebrews.
