12 oz can pours a hazed gold color with a fluffy, rocky cap of off-white head. Nice retention and lace, very craggy as it descends slowly with connective lace patterns. Can is a bit creepy looking, not sure what to make of that!

Nose is grainy, light fruit and a touch of grass. Honestly, this is pretty spot on for a blonde ale...nothing fancy but something with a pleasurable sniff. Seems like it could be good for enjoying in a glass or straight from the can in hot Texas weather.

Light, grainy malt with a modest fruit and hop combo that keeps it from being too boring. Mouthfeel falls just short of medium for the style but makes up for it by being perfectly carbonated and mildly creamy. It reminds me a bit of Southern Star's bombshell with less sweetness and body. Both have nice grains and a subtle hop. I think this is pretty good. I have already bought two sixers on my various forays to the metroplex, and as it gets hotter, this beer will only become more appealing. This is a perfect choice to grab a sixer of before heading to a Rangers game in mid-June.

On tap at the brewery. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The first things to come through in the aroma are biscuit malt and a hint of grass. I also get a bit of orange citrus, but it is subtle. The flavor is a bit different. The toffee and biscuit malt notes add some nice sweet character, which is complimented by the orange and grass notes from the hops. There is also an earthy character in the flavor which is quite nice. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

Pours out to a nice frothy white head and dies down to a permanent thin layer of foam. Lacing is minimal but it tries. Color is a hazy yellow and tons of bubbles rising. Aroma is grainy, malty, crackery and a hint of hops. Flavor is a balance of malt sweetness and mild hop bitterness. Finishes crisp. Mouthfeel is big for the style. Overall, a good alternative to adjunct lagers.
