Great tasting beer. No bitterness, a slightly sweet taste, with a moderate malty flavor. Very easy drinker.

Bomber purchased in Palm Desert. Drank on a 95 (or higher) degree day.
Soft malt aroma. Pretty straight forward. Gold color and mostly clear. Nice white head.
Lighter body with sharp carbonation. Clean ale and not particularly complex malt flavors. Some lingering with a soft bitterness and a touch of dryness.
Bottled on 1/22/15.
An overall straight ahead take on a simple style done simply.

1 pint, 6 oz. bottle from BevMo. Taste is malt forward with small hop bitterness and mild carbonation. Simple but smooth, dry and clean. No corn or rice which places it miles above the mass brewed standards. I enjoyed this for what it is: a refreshing crisp American Blonde Ale. Love the low ABV.

Excellent tasting beer. My go-to beer on my west coast visits, just wish I could buy in Ohio.

An all around easy drinking beer. it's a blonde ale, nothing experimental or crazy... that's why I love it. It's the perfect hot weather beer.

It's a very drinkable beer. A slight sweet bite at first taste with a sweet aromatic finish. I really enjoyed this beer while visiting Cali this past weekend. A big plus to find a beer that is what it is, Just a decent local beer. It not usually a fan of blonde ales but this one makes me want to try more.
