3.08/5 rDev -3.4%
On tap at BJ's in Valencia, CA.
Pours a clear gold color with a tan head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grain and some slightly fruity aromas. Taste is the same way with a mild grassy note on the finish. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average blonde with nothing special going on.

One of the few BJ's year-round beers that I have yet to try. On-tap at the Huntington Beach locale, on to the beer:
A little bit hazy inside that highlighter yellow color with a deeper blonde hue. There's an inch of head on top, giving off some creamy strings of lace. Its nose has something different about it; grape nuts cereal. And a hint of pineapple.
It seems a little different from the usual kolsch. Well, it's got the refreshment factor, the cleanliness, the very soft crispness that one could expect. The taste is a little different, yet it is still agreeable. Tasting grape nuts is more appealing than smelling them, and it's got that character all around.
Surprisingly more than decent. A beer withat least a little character while delievering refreshment.

2.6/5 rDev -18.5%
Served in a 5 oz glass.
Appearance - light gold, no head.
Smell - Too light for me to properly say what it is...
Taste - ...basically, all the flavor that was ripped out of the lightswitch lager they made came back for this. The front is the same: a lightly roasted taste. However, it actually have some staying power. Its not bitter or strong though, so its kinda forgettable and just feels like a "safe" drink. Pushes no envelopes, fairly drinkable.
Mouthfeel - clean.
Overall - Its an okay beer. Its nothing groundbreaking, its not even great as a Kolsch (if the dry and hoppy characteristics are supposed to be there, I'm not getting them). But its entirely drinkable and a safe pitcher beer to drink if you're not sure what everyone wants or likes.
