Pours a golden color with 1/2 inch head. Very good example of the style. Clean taste of toasted malt, honey, with a hoppy backbone that mixes well. I will pick this up again. (176 characters)

Appears honey blonde with a thin white head, forming. Aroma has some vegetal notes normally found in some malt liquor. Wow, I'm still loving it. Cereal grains slight fruit, the flavor is clean drinking beer with higher alcohol a bit of corn/vegetal notes saying we fermented to get the best of you it seems higher abv than your average blonde. (343 characters)

Its clear, deep-gold bordering on amber body rests beneath a short lived head of bright white foam that drops to a thin collar and leaves little, if any, lace. The nose is clean and expresses a sweetish, straw-like maltiness with a slight fruitiness and just a suggestion of hops. It's smooth in the mouth with a medium body and a gently crisp and very fine, median carbonation. The flavor displays a grainy malt that's straightforward but clean, and balanced towards sweetness. It's clearly an ale with a nice bit of fruitiness that doesn't go overboard; and it finishes dry with some lingering grainy malt. It offers a good deal of drinkability as it does have some real character to it; and it pairs nicely with their Mesquite Chicken Roll appetizers. (984 characters)
