3.2/5 rDev +4.9%
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.

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.

Pours golden with a thick creamy head that leaves lacing.
The smell is grainy - not much, but not unpleasant.
The taste is of grain with a touch of lemon. Basic, inoffensive and refreshing. Crisp finish.
It is smooth with a creamy finish. Has a nice body to it for the style.
This isn't bad for what it is. It's probably brewed for the macro-lager, and it's better than most in that class. It's not a bad "lawn-mower" beer.

2.63/5 rDev -13.8%
Appearance: pours a clear golden yellow color with a 1/2" head that breaks apart immediately.
Smell: some honey sweetness and grass is all you can detect.
Taste: mild malt profile. Grass, honey, golden apples and a bit of bitterness creates a dull beer.
Mouthfeel: lightly crisp throughout. Basically a clean aftertaste too.
Overall: this has an overall fake flavor about it. This one comes across as just another macro type beer for the masses. Skip this one.

3.35/5 rDev +9.8%
A: Pours a crystal clear brillant medium yellow with some light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a finger tall bright white head that reduces to a thin film covering the majority of the surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Light to moderate amounts of sweet grainy malts (possible adjunct malts), honey, and just a hint of grassy hops.
T: There is a sweet cereal grain (and hints of adjunct malts) along with some honey. There is a light amount of grassy hops and very light amounts of bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.
O: Easy to drink and enjoyable, this is a very sessionable beer that you could drink all day long - this tastes more like a blonde ale than a light lager.

Horny Goat Horny Blond
LOOK: pale yellow, perfectly clear brew. Carbonation rising actively from the bottom.
AROMA: clean lager yeast, faint malt sweetness and the suggestions of honey oat cereal.
TASTE: bready, lager yeast characteristics. There is a mild honey grain sweetness and a ghost hop bitterness. the brew has a more or less even balance. Mellow but agreeable flavor. Light to medium yet thin bodied, semi crisp, alittle loose but alriight.
Affordable and inoffensive, this lager is a serviceable beer. Could be paired with just about anything, and would go just fine along with greasy bar food or lighter seafood dishes.

3/5 rDev -1.6%
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.

Pours a clear, straw color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Good retention and decent lacing. Smells of pale malt, hint of wheat, rice, and a hint of hops. Fits the style of a Light Lager. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of rice, pale malt, hint of hop, and a hint of sweet malt. Overall, decent appearance, aroma, and blend for a Light Lager, but the bottle clearly states Blonde Ale, and is therefore a poor American Blonde Ale.

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.

Eh. Poured with decent white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is heavy banana, crackers, biscuit malt. Flavor is similar to aroma. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor too. The banana thing is too much. Not a session beer.

T - crisp, clean taste upfront with a pilsner-like taste on the finish.
F - light/medium bodied with a crisp and refreshing feel.
O - a good tasting beer that's easy to drink.

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.

a cloudy yellow with a slight bit of foam around the edge of the glass. smells of pilsner malt, lemongrass, very sweet. the flavor is much like the smell..very basic with a slight bit of pilsner taste to it.. has a very bready aftertaste. light-medium in body, low carbonation for the style. nothing impressive here.. good starter beer for those who only drink pbr, miller, and bud (taking into consideration unless you're at least 50 you don't bother with coors anymore, and that would be coors original not light)
