look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: A slightly hazy honey colored liquid pours out from the can; the cap is modest and fades though it leaves some strands behind

Smell: Somewhat grainy with a bit of vanilla sweetness, as well

Taste: Bready and grainy, with just a hint of vanilla in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Certain to be a crowd pleaser among certain beer drinkers, there is not much to dislike about this beer nor is there much to say, either

Thanks, duff247, for the opportunity

Poured from a can into a point glass.

Nice deep yellow, crystal clear. Decent amount of head, and it lasts a good long while, too. No pun intended, based on their, ahem, "controversial" slogan, either.

Smells earthy, a bit dusty from the hops. Slight grain sweetness, but mostly just the "dirt" hop aromas, which are quite nice.

Taste is mild, as one would expect from a blonde. Not bitter, with a hop presence mostly in the flavor rather than from bitterness. Slight almost citrus flavor peeks in, then goes away just as quickly. You're left with an earthy aftertaste, again mimicking the aroma, with the dusty flavor and just a hint of malt sweetness.

Mouthfeel is quite light, as it should be. No complaints there.

The can is correct; this goes down easy. While it's difficult to drink while laughing at the overwrought hand wringing over the slogan without shooting beer out your nose, it can be done. And this is worth chasing down. It's nothing amazing, and won't change your life in any meaningful way, but it is a solid blonde ale, perfect for nights on the deck of afternoons by the grill, when you just want a beer without having to think hard about it.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A- Aggressive pour yields an inch tall white fizzy head. Body is a darker shade of yellow/lighter shade of orange. Cap and collar throughout, some splotchy lacing.

S- Aromas of pilsner malt, hay, grass, lemon.

T- Follows the nose. Not overdone with the sweetness as some of this style tend to be. Slight hop bitterness, well balanced overall. Dry and refreshing. Would guess 4.5-5%abv.

M- Medium to medium-high carbonation point, fits well here. Medium mouthfeel.

D/O- Rated to style. Nothing off-putting about this beer but nothing that stands out either. A fine alternative to mainsteam lagers. Thanks for this one kojevergas!
