Pretty weak. Marketed as a gateway beer from Bud, and that's pretty much what you get. Reddish ale with reasonable smell and mouthfeel, but absolutely nothing memorable in the taste.

Blondes aren't my favorite, but as they go this one would be my recommendation for anyone interested.

It's Blonde, hence the name, but the complexion is entirely too clear. The head was fizzy but it laced well.

The scent had a lot of hops, floral and earthy, but this possessed little of the aromas the style is known for.

The flavor was hoppy, way too hoppy. The hops were a bit soapy and dry and I caught none of the yeast characteristics that should be available in the style.

The feel was easy, light and had very little of the hop tingy or metallic feel that I would expect from a beer with so much hop flavor.

From 08/10/13 notes. Had this on tap at my hotel bar in Nashville, TN. 16 oz. pour into a hefeweizen style glass.

a - Pours a hazy yellow color with two inches of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of soap, floral hops, lemon, citrus hops, and bready malts. Weird earthy notes and soap; not great.

t - Tastes of lemon, citrus hops, wheat, bananas, bready malts, and light floral hops. Better than the nose, more citrus hops.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and pretty easy to drink.

o - Overall a decent blonde ale. Nose seemed a bit weir dbut the taste was good with nice lemon and bananas. Easy to drink.

16 oz draft pour served in a mason jar.

A: Bright, crystal clear straw with a finger and a half of rocky white head. Head recedes quickly to a thin cap leaving little or no lacing.

S: Light lemon, cookie malt, and floral (New Zealand, Crystal, and Glacier) hops.

T: Refreshing, crisp lemon and fruity notes up front supported by balanced malt. Very pleasant, with an ever so slight hint of funk on the finish.

F: In keeping with the low abv and crisp, light flavors, the medium-light body keeps things in balance. Carbonation is a bit bubbly on the coarse side but does not interfere with the sessionable enjoyment.

O: This would make a great summer refresher or pair nicely with savory summer grilling foods. This beer is on the light side, but brings plenty of personality to the table.

My favorite of the quartet of brews I had at the Mayday! tasting room.Poured a lighter pale yellow with a thinner but well retained bone white head atop.Citrusy and floral hop aromas with a touch of toasted creal grain,pretty fresh and inviting.Flavors are light but again very fresh and lemony with a tinge leafiness,mildy sweet with a nice toasted creal grain flavor in the finish.This is a beer you could drink all day and be happy with,light but flavorful and a little complexity to it.
