Ok it is what it is...and there's nothing wrong with what it is. It's a blonde ale and that's what it wants to be, so comparing it to something else is like comparing a good pizza to a good steak dinner; it's not fair to either. This is the kind of beer you drink when you're having an impromptu bbq with some friends on a nice summer day. If a refreshing beer is what you seek, this is one of the best in that class.

It's a blonde ale. Anyone expecting something in-your-face spectacular is looking at the wrong style of beer. But, for what it is, it is really great. Crisp, clean tasting, and refreshing to drink.

Quite possibly one of the worst beers I have ever had - I just don't get it.

Really enjoyable but not unique or memorable as the popularity suggests.

It's part of their typical 12 pack and I usually enjoy this one after enjoying darker and hoppier beers. I dont seek it out but it's usually on the cheaper side in NorCal. It's light, flavorful and a much better alternative to the big brewery watered down beers.
