look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 03/24/14.

Pours translucent dark gold with a thin white head that quickly disappears completely and leaves faint spots of lace.

The smell is of sweet grainy bread, like a King's Hawaiian dinner roll.

The flavor is of bread, grains and malt with very little hop presence and a faint caramel and honey sweetness.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rise to the top throughout the drink down.

This is a decent blonde ale that has bready malt qualities and a slightly sweet finish. Smooth, light and sessionable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A: nothing to complain
S: bready, light
T: sweet, bready, little bit of bitterness on the end. Kinda disappointing
M: super fizzy, didn't care for it

Overall, tasted more like a lager than an ale. Seemed to be very carbonated, which wasn't something I liked on it. Probably won't purchase again.

Edit: had another one of these, disliked even more. It's just not a good beer.
