It is hard to rate what I would consider a good "snack" beer average when you have rubbish beers from so many "big box" manufacturers.

This would be what I would consider a local blonde ale that has good smooth favor with little after taste. The smell is light grain with a hint of sweet. The consistency is thin but the flavor is sweet with a slight bit of hops. The color is a light golden color, darker then a typical american ale.

Overall a good summer beer that has more favor then most.

On tap at Matt's Bar in south Minneapolis; and it's well-matched to heavy fare: crisp, lightly malty, thin and very consumable, if not necessarily inspired.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear yellow, huge head.

Smell: Grainy, sweet, a little grass.

Taste: Moderately sweet, maybe a touch of corn, light grass in the finish. Kind of syrupy feel.

Overall: I've had this on tap several times but picked up an on-sale sixer for a review. This is a good starter beer for your BMC drinkers or for a change-up from your big flavored beers. Worth a try.

Serving: From tap into pilsner glass. Seems fridge temp.

Look: Light Golden yellow. More color than an American lager. Minimal head reduces to thin film. Moderate lacing.

Smell: Light grain, and possibly some earthy hops.

Taste: Similar to the smell, pretty light overall. The malts are not quite doughy, nor are they very toasty. However, they are a bit grainy. Bitterness is somewhat noticeable, but overall low and balances the malt well. The result is relatively neutral, but it has enough flavor to keep it interesting. Finish is smooth and the taste does not linger too long.

Feel: Relatively light and crisp. Finish is dry, but does not linger.

Overall: A good example of the blonde ale style. The flavor is pleasant and interesting, but stays out of the way and doesn't try to make a bold statement. I would have preferred the malts to be a little more toasty or maybe biscuity rather than grainy, but I could be misperceiving that. A solid member of the Fulton lineup, that should not be overlooked just because it doesn't have an overpowering amount of hops or malt.
