Randomly was given a can of this by the bro-in-law of one of the brewers/owners of this brewery. Was happy to have it as it's not likely they'll be distributing in Nashville anytime soon. Poured from a cool looking purple and gold 12 oz. can into NB globe glass.

Pale yellow in color with a nice thick bubbly head. Pours clear with pretty nice retention; looks good. Smells of bready, husky malts, almost lager-like. A slight sweet essence with subtle hints of fruit, unripe strawberries maybe. Tastes nice, pretty malty but also some noticeable hop bitterness in there as well. Flavors of saltine crackers, sour dough bread, corn. Nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is thin and bubbly, refreshing, not too heavy. Overall I'm glad to have had the opportunity to sample this ale. Good hot weather beers are few and far between but this one makes the cut for me.

Poured from a yellow and purple, LSU-inspired 12 oz can. Thanks to my brother for bringing these cans to me. The beer pours a clear straw color with a white head. The aroma has a nice pilsner/biscuit malt aroma, with a little bit of grain thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. There is a nice grass and light orange citrus tone, with some sweet biscuit malt. The bitterness is very low. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, a very easy to drink, refreshing blonde ale. Glad I got to try this one.

Pours a clear blonde color, bone white head.

The aroma was quite bready and biscuity, with a touch of grassy hop notes.

Tastes of bread crusts, biscuits, and grassy hops. Minimal bitterness.

Nice light feel, refreshing, good carbonation.

Blondes are kinda boring, but they can be a refreshing choice and this fits the bill.

Tin Roof Blonde has a thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, fairly bubbly, golden appearance with some thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of lemon, biscuit, and tap water. Flavor is of faint citrus fruit, bready barley malt, mild hops, and tap water. Mouthfeel is watery, and Tin Roof Blonde finishes refreshing, pleasant, and easy going. Overall, this is a simple, yet very good beer. It was created to be a tailgating beer, and in that respect, it fulfills its mission almost to perfection.

Poured from tap at Portico in Monroe, LA. Pours a slightly brownish golden. No head or lacing but it looks a bit more brown than a blonde should be..but it looks good.
Smell is very mild if barely present at all...just some malts and typical "beer" aroma.
Taste is great though. Its crisp and malty but has a really mild hop flavor. Really smooth and super easy to drink, plus it really has a lot of body for the style. Great session brew. Overall, nice brew and I can't believe it hasn't been reviewed yet?! Worth a try if you see it.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz can into a pint.

A: Golden hue. Pours a 1 finger, tight, bubbly, white head. Settles pretty quickly. No real lacing.

S: Dry hay, butter, wheat flour, and paper.

T: Sourdough bread and some indistinct (and I'm guessing unplanned) citrus.

M: Has a heavily carbonated feel, despite little carbonation... like soda water. Light body, crisp and refreshing character.

D: Session.

Atmosphere is okay. Nice bubbly head, little carbonation, and no real lacing. Buttery, grassy, and card-boardy nose. Pungent bread, and some weird citrus tone. Light and crisp session brew. Overall, this is a decent quaff.
