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.

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.

Serving type: growler

3.5/5  rDev -4.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Yellow and clear with a decent head and decent lacing. About what you'd expect from a blonde ale.

The smell was kind of weak but pleasant nonetheless. Wheat aromas come to mind, along with some hops and some fruitiness.

Taste wise there was a touch of yeast along with some graininess, a little hops, and some floral flavors. Not bad.

Feel was very light and a little thin, but enjoyable.

Overall it was an easy beer to drink and while not spectacular, it was still quite tasty.

4.03/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a light hazy golden/orange color. A one finger white head forms and recedes to leave some light lace.
S: Citrus and floral hops are big. Some passion fruits, orange peal, and a light grainy sweetness.
T: Passion fruits seem to be up front and center. Pineapple and pears. Floral and grassy hops. Light orange peal and a grainy sweetness.
M/D: A light to medium body that has crisp carbonation. A little thin though. Really easy to drink. All day with this one.

Overall this is a really good every day beer. Plenty of flavor and substance. A great beer for the long hot Texas summers, or anytime while at Freetail.
