1.53/5 rDev -50.3%
Appearance - This was a putrid-looking light orange in color with no head from a horrible pour by the bartender.
Smell - This smells like rotten grain.
Taste - The rotten grain turns to moldy ashtray at the taste.
Mouthfeel - This is light-bodied without any sort of crispness at the end.
Sinkability - Rarely do I send back a beer at a pub, but when I called the waitress over and apologized profusely she just waved her hand and shook her head and said, "Don't worry, people send back beer here all the time." Hahahaha!

On tap at BJ’s in Allen, Texas. The beer pours a clear, light yellow color with a white head. The aroma is fairly heavy on the wheat and biscuit malt. The flavor is more of the same, with the addition of a little bit of grass from the hops. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not a bad beer, but nothing too exciting.

This is obviously the beer the waitress recommends for those customers who ask if they have anything like a Bud or Coors light. Very light beer. Pours clear yellow with a medium white head. Metallic, sweet and malty, but not memorable. Seems out of place with everything else BJ's serves.

Had this on tap in the Machine Room at the Great American Ballpark in Cincinnati. The aroma was one of the worst I've ever encountered... something along the lines of wet moldy rice/corn. The taste was almost as bad: it was harsh going down with an even worse aftertaste. I had this alongside two other BJ's beers, and the Blonde was the worst (the Red was a little better and the Brunette was far superior to both).

14 oz pseudo pint brought to the table a bit too full. Clear, medium gold color with a light sheen of white foam and a few pieces of clingy lace.
Smell is very light...lemmie shove my nose in here...hmmm, not a whole lot. Some grainy malt along with a distinctive earthy contribution, maybe some special B? Hints of light fruit and bready yeast. Not bad.
Nothing really screams Kolsch about this beer, but it is not a half-bad drinker. Light and freshly crushed grains with a full bready character. Decent floral hop finish cleans it up nicely. Decently full body for the style and creamy enough mouthfeel. Seems to be missing alot of the distinctive kolsch yeast profile that is found in some of the best. A good beer though, and more interesting than your typical 'blonde' ale.

Had in Mcallen, TX. Reviewing these beers has become cumbersome and I have no idea where to put this.
I received my beer with no head and was barely able to generate anything. It had aa clear yellow color.
The smell was of pale malt and lemon grass. It was faint at first, but as the beer warmed it came together with a nice citrusy undertone.
The taste is clean. Pale malts mix with some flavors of lemon grass with some citrusy undertones. Hop bitterness is very low and this beer is pretty simple. It's a good crossover beer for those getting into craft beer and something nice to quench one's thirst during the summer time.
The mouthfeel is crisp and clean. It is sort of spritzy and seltzery at first, but as the beer warmed it settled down.
This beer was served too cold, but as it warmed up it became a decent lawnmower beer. I would reach for one of these to quench my thirst in the summertime.

Sampled this one on 4/23/08. Golden colored, thin head, minimal lacing, and pretty much a middle of the road pale beer. Slightly sweet tasting, mild hops, and a bit grainy. Overall a little watery. Very easy drinking and refreshing but really there's not much to it.

A: nice golden color with a little pale white head. bubbles rising continuously.
S: smelled malty, maybe a little grassy. smelled pretty good, actually.
T: the light malty sweetness was good, but the small amount of hops in the beer was absolutely horrible and ruined the taste. it had a slightly musty/moldy hoppy taste that made a good beer bad.
M: good. light with plenty of carbonation. this is how a blonde should be.
D: maybe I just got into a bad batch, maybe I will give it another chance in the future..
