Want to prove you're a fool? Then order a Foolproof Barstool. Brewed in Pawtucket, RI, I have a feeling this is just Narragansett in a different, more expensive, craft-ish looking can. Bad sign when I asked the waitress what it was and she had no idea.

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.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.
The color is a clear yellow/gold with a lot of foamy white head. As soon as the can opened the foam was overflowing.
The smell is grainy with a few touches of bitterness. There is an off aroma that smells a bit clay.
The taste is a bit grassy and leans toward the traditional hop flavor. The the malts hold up the balance and let the earthy flavor squeeze through. There is little more to the flavor but it does hit the right notes.
The feel of this beer is light and has a nice smooth finish. There is a nice crispness that brings on a nice refreshing feel that goes well in hot weather.

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a bright, hazy, straw-gold coloring with a steady flow of carbonation throughout and a tall, frothy, chunky, bright white head. Aromas of toasted grains, wheat, floral highlights, and a hint of buttery notes. Flavors are a bit on the sharp side on the forward tongue, with a heavy tangy sweet, buttery character overpowered by a pepper spice, boiled greens, grass, and roast blend. The flavors are all over the place. The body is light and crisp, but the flavors are so robust that the beer is a bit out of balance throughout. Tangy, roasted sweet in the aftertaste, with a solid bitter and spiced hops presence. The finish has an aromatic linger that fills the sinuses, slightly grainy and barnyard, with a bitterness underlying. This one is a jumble.
