Amber colored brew in the 14 oz "pint" shaker. Virtually no head. Fairly subdued carbonation. The flavor, however, is fairly robust for a Blonde. Some malt, but not very sweet. More of a watered-down Pale Ale, though not really crisp. Still, it's a drinkable and tangy quaff with a nice splash of hops.

This actually tastes better as it warms up. More tart and less flabby than a lot of Blondes. On tap at RFD in Washington, DC.

Serving type: on-tap

Had on draft at The Big Hunt.

Pours a light golden color, good carbonation, active bubbles.

Smells like a pilsner. Pulling out wheat, a brief hit of citrus.

The taste is grainy up front, a slight bitter finish. Very drinkable.

It's smooth, creamy finish. Session able for sure.

Serving type: on-tap

Good carbonation and a light body. Pilsner-like finish. Nothing amazing. drinkable. prefer some of their other offerings. However looking forward to trying on tap in DC soon. smell isn't that appealing. Appearance is a dark straw color with nice streams of bubbles throughout the drinking.

Serving type: bottle

On tap in a pint glass.

A- Light golden color, slightly hazy. One finger of pure white cotton-fluff head tapers to a thin film that leaves lots of lacing. Extra lively carbonation.

S- A bit AAL-esque, mild pilsner malts.

T-Grainy, light malts, minty.

M- Quite full for a session beer, some breadiness with some hop bitterness on the finish.

O-Not bad as a one shot, but not good enough to rate a go-to session ale.

Serving type: on-tap
