2.88/5 rDev -12.2%
No freshness date to be found, so no telling how old this is. Pours to a nice white head that falls to a thin layer with some lacing. Hazy gold. Aroma is weak and grainy and smells old. Flavor is typical blonde ale, neutral yeast, pale malts and perfunctory bitterness with a hint of stale bread and cardboard. Mouthfeel is ok. Overall a blah beer that is probably better to have on tap.
Lesson learned: don't buy beer from just any old store. Shop where the BAs shop.

Poured from a 12 oz brown bottle into a Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass. No freshness date. Received as part of a Beer-of-the -Month Club type of shipment courtesy of my sister.
A: Slightly hazy golden-orange hue with short 1/2-finger of tight bubbled white head with below-average retention but a few spots of lace remain behind.
S: Nice nutty, lightly toasty, caramel malty note, maybe a little strong for the style but enjoyable nonetheless. Light orange-lemon citrus and floral hops aromas play behind the pleasant malt character. No yeast or alcohol character noted.
T: A tasty beer, simple but a solid to above average blonde ale. The caramel malt character in the flavor is maybe a little too prominent for the style, but no harm no foul, and the flavors are well-melded with a nice noble hops spice and floral character meeting the slightly sweet but mostly malty backbone. No yeast esters of any significance were detectable, and overt alcohol presence was only what you need to make a beer.
M: This beer has a really good crisp finish with reasonably high carbonation helping that sensation along. Body is light as it should be.
O: Mustang Golden Ale was an excellent beer - maybe slightly more caramel character than most blondes but paired up with a soft spicy/floral hoppiness, it went down really easily. I would most definitely give this another try. From their website it appears they got nailed by a tornado and are contract brewing this for the time being while they rebuild. I hope they are successful -- this is a solid blonde ale with clean flavors and the easy drinkability you are looking for from this style.

Bought a 12 pack of this stuff in Jenks, Ok. See it's actually brewed at Stevens Point in Wisconsin, but that's okay.
Poured this one into a pilsner glass, and the brew makes about a one and a half thick white foam presentation, and the body is golden copper in color with plenty of haze.
The aroma is of honey, orange peel, metallic qualities, and very subtle tobacco.
In the taste, I'm getting honey, tobacco, and metallic traits.
Feels light in body, a little strong to be labeled as a session beer, but not too bad over all.
