3.04/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

12 fl oz yellow aluminum can acquired at a local corner mart and served into a conical Pinthouse Pizza pint glass in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live. Reviewed as a blonde ale.

Served cold - at fridge temp. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.

A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.

Pours a 3.5 finger head of white colour. Okay thickness and creaminess. Decently frothy. Little lacing sticks to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is above average - about 3 minutes.

Body colour is a translucent transparent pale copper. Kind of dirty looking. It's hazy, with hanging particles clearly visible in the body. It's kind of off-putting.

Overall, it's an underwhelming appearance for a blonde ale. Far from unique or special.

Sm: Clean barley, grains, and blonde malts. Some floral hop character. That's about it. A simple but fairly pleasant aroma of mild strength.

No yeast character, alcohol, or off-notes are detectable.

As it warms, I pick up on some light nectary character.

T: Blonde malts, clean barley, honey, grains, and floral hop character. On the sweeter side, but not cloying.

Has an okay balance and build. Average depth, duration, and intensity of flavour. It's certainly a simple beer, and lacks subtlety or nuance.

Mf: Smooth and wet. Lightly refreshing. Somewhat soft. A biteen overcarbonated. Medium-bodied. Moderate weight on the palate. Has nice presence for what it is.

Not oily, gushed, hot, astringent, boozy, or chewy.

Overall, this texture suits the taste well in a general sense, but doesn't come off custom-tailored specifically to it.

Dr: Easy to drink and enjoyable. It's a decent blonde ale, but I doubt I'll ever intentionally buy it again. I do like it for what it is, but I wouldn't recommend it to friends. A basic blonde from Deep Ellum.

Low C+

3.05/5  rDev -11.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Passing over some old hand written reviews. I remember liking this one a little bit more than what the rating says. Guess i'm gonna have to drink it again! On to the notes: Orange body, hoppy aroma but not too overwhelming. Light body with a hoppy resinous presence, crisp and dry to the palate. In the end, easy comes easy goes!

3.18/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz can into a goblet.

A - Hazy and golden with about 1.5 fingers of white foamy head that quickly becomes about 1 finger. Soap bubble-like lacing down the glass.

S - Malty and slightly sweet smelling. I think I sense some citrus in there.

T - Less malt and more citrus. Very little bitter flavor.

M - Pretty thick and heavy for how light it looks. Sticks around on your tongue.

O - The look and smell had me optimistic, but the taste and mouthfeel didn't back them up. It's certainly not the worst beer I've ever poured out of a can, but it's also definitely not the best.

Serving type: can
