3.55/5  rDev -1.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Can poured into pint glass. Gotten as a holiday gift from some good Texas friends.

A clear, bubbly sunflower yellow. The head was white and fell quickly to nothing.
Light pleasant malts, a little grainy; light hop aroma; a faint bright sourness.
Taste follows the smell closely, the sourness being a little more prominent in the aftertaste. Overall bright and crisp. Mouthfeel is just on the heavy side of light. The 6% is hefty for a blonde but the beer stays fairly light in spite of that. Because it's so tasty and easy drinking, I would probably prefer a little lower ABV for the session factor.

3.67/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Small to Medium sized white head quickly falls to a decent lacing above a clear bright as fresh panned gold colored beer.

Light sour lightly roasted grain malt aroma with a solid hops backbone included.

Light sour grain malt taste with a touch of hops coming through and fading quite quickly.

The aftertaste is on the lighter side and slightly dry with this light bodied beer from Alpine.

A light tasting beer sort of in the light American drinking family from all the Macros, seems to have a big and better taste than most of them. If that's saying anything.

Poured a cloudy marigold with white head and plenty of effervescence. Smell grainy, light malts, hint of floral hops. Taste is light malts forward, sweet, a bit of a sour tang mid note and fairly clean, dry finish. Plenty of carbonation, a bit astringent but quite good. Great at a barbeque and both easily quaffable and quite good for the style. ABV well hidden and overall a pretty tasty brew.

A: The beer is hazy yellow in color. It poured with a half finger high white head that died down, leaving a short head covering the surface, a collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides.
S: Light aromas of grainy and cracker malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is a little more bland compared to the smell, but is malty and has light flavors of cracker malts. Although no bitterness is perceptible, there are enough hops to mask any sweetness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has a nice aroma compared to other beers in the style, but the taste seemed a little bland.
