Cloudy and orange/golden in color, First Street Ale has a nose that is one of sweet grain but little else. The white- colored foam on this beer is moderate and eventually fizzes out, leaving a small coating as you consume.

This beer features the taste of grains, including rice, along with some mild hops, a touch of honey, and biscuits. The body is creamy and the taste is generally crisp and refreshing. There is some metallic flavor present, but it only slightly distracts from the overall taste.

This beer was brewed as a tribute to No Label’s hometown of Katy, Texas and it is one of only a few craft beers to use rice as an ingredient. The reason is because rice has a long history with the city and the brewery was originally housed in some old rice dryers. The added rice might seem like an odd choice of ingredients, given its association with adjunct lagers, but it is actually not too bad in this instance.

First Street Ale is now a year- round beer so locals can enjoy it whenever they like. I don’t rank it among my favorite No Label products, but it is a good beer for warm weather or when in need of some simple refreshment.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

This beer is not good but its not terrible either,of all the blonde ales i have had this one is the worst.no label continues to disappoint ,i have yet to have a good beer from them.

it pours a nice looking hazy orange,a little head and no lacing.

the taste is off somehow.maybe its the rice that gives it that twang that i cant quite put my finger on.

The mouthfeel is not very good either too thin for a blonde ale.too much carbonation too imo.

Overall their are many more and way better blonde ales out there than this one and its not like its dirt cheap either so its a lose lose.I want to like no label brewery,i really do, just like all my local breweries but no label does not even do what st arnold and karbach and southern star do,which is make a lot of good beers and not many great beers.step up your game no label.

This one pours a cloudy golden blonde with a decent think white head that settles at a moderate rate leaving no lacing behind.

The nose is a sweet malt that has hints of citrus, coriander and pine.

The taste is decent and malty with fruity notes that give way to a mildly hopped beer that is quite satisfying an flavorful but will not satisfy a serious hop head. This is a more traditional ale that is actually quite good.

The mouthfeel is decent as well but is not great. Just good.

Overall the beer is very drinkable and not too heavy. This is a beer I would to to go to more on hot days when a lighter yet tasty beer is better suited to our hot and humid climate.
