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

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 -18.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

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.

Looks straw yellow and clarity like BMC. Aroma was even worse, didn't find it appealing at all. Just oxidized corn.

Taste, wow, this is not BJ's strong suit. Made as mild as possible, carbonation wasn't high enough, was just weak. No snappy carbonation or hopping to it. Didn't get better with the food either. Just bland with a bad aftertaste.

My least favorite BJ's beer.

This beer has an absolute amazing after taste! The appearence was ok, looks just like everyother beer i have seen before. Smell was neutral. Althought this is the best beer this resturat offers. I had this beer at the resturant in columbus, ohio. I wish they would sell this at grocery stores!
