On tap at the brewpub in the outskirts of San Antonio.

Clear light amber with a durable white head that leaves spots of lacing.

Well crafted, with good balance but the aroma is more malty and the flavor is more hoppy than usual for style.

O: a modestly bold American Blonde. Great introductory craft beer.

The beer is golden hued and fairly hazy with a small white head. The aroma offers biscuits, grain, lager yeast. Lightly sweet and fruity with prominent biscuity grain flavor. Light floral notes with a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light bodied and easy drinking. Decent for the style.

This is Freetail’s blonde ale. Typically I’m not a fan so saying that I liked this is not light praise.

It pours a cloudy golden color. No discernible aroma to speak of—typical of the style? Or just my inability to pick any of it up? It’s light, refreshingly sweet but not overly so, with a pleasing biscuity malt finish that really makes it work for me.
