2.37/5  rDev -28.4%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, clear, golden in color

Smell: grass, grain, and light hops

Taste: grass, grain, bark, and a good dose of citrus hops

Mouthfeel: light body, moderate carbonation, sweetish start with a bitter middle and a dry bitter end

Overall: One of the biggest disappointments I have had in a while. I understand this is supposed to be a semi-bitter but balanced blonde ale. To me the flavors do not balance well and even clash in places. I had a hard time finishing this one. Some times the hops are a bit strong for the style and for the base malt of the beer. To me this has the feel and taste like an honest attempt at homebrew but nothing I would pay for again. (699 characters)

Smells like ketchup, tastes like absolutely nothing. One of the worst craft beers I've had. (91 characters)

Consumed 6/5/13

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear but lightly hazy - an attractive orange-dark gold color, maybe with some hints of light amber - small, white head, fades to a minimal cap and leaves some nice wisps of lacing

Smell: Lightly floral, lightly malty - just interesting enough that I wouldn't exactly describe the aroma as mellow - floral citrus with some nice orange and grapefruit - lightly grainy, with some caramelized malt sweetness - lightly toasted bread and some crackers - pretty clean smelling

Taste: Lightly malty and lightly hoppy with a nice floral, kind of spicy kick - lightly toasted grains, caramelized malts, freshly baked bread, light crackers - floral citrus, orange and grapefruit, with some spicy grass/herbal notes - medium amount of bitterness - nicely balanced overall - kind of a resiny, lightly sweet aftertaste, not exactly as clean as the smell suggested

Mouthfeel: Medium body, smooth, mostly crisp but some stickiness in the finish

Overall: Aged on retired barstools

I bought this can a few weeks ago and it ended up towards the back of my fridge. In the meantime, I convinced myself that this was Barstool Brown Ale. Like, a wood-aged brown ale. Anyway, this is a good Blonde. Not the best, but worth a try. (1,255 characters)
