Isotopes Triple "A" Blonde

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a very slight hazy to the dark orange hue body with a thin lacy white foam that are supported by a few random large bubbles of carbonation. There are a few tiny brown bits floating around in the glass aswell.

S- This beer has a clean flavor with a soft green pine note.

T- The light pale malt flavor has a slight iced tea flavor with a light tangy at the finish that has a hop quality to it. The after taste is a light corn and sulfur note that lingers for only a second.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a soft fizz coming through when it warms.

D-This beer doesn't have any off flavors but it is pretty light with not many flavors at all. It gets a little drab but might hit the spot if you are at a summer baseball game in the New Mexico heat.

Medium sized white head falls into a very thin lacing on a clear honey golden colored beer.

Light honey and caramel malt aroma.

A light caramel malt with hints of some sweet honey with just a a hops taste, a light bodied and tasting beer but in a very good way, I think I could kill at least 6 of these at a Isotopes game.

A very light caramel hint to the aftertaste that was wet nor dry, just slightly there.

If you are looking for a easy drinking beer with some good subdued tastes, try this.

Pours an old gold with a two finger white head. Carbonation bubbles evident. A very sweet aroma like strawberry candy. Sweet malt flavor. A refreshing ballgame beer that is sold at the Albuquerque Isotopes ballpark and can be purchased retail. Easy to put down a few over 9 innings.

Appearance - Clear straw body. Thin white lace.

Smell - Honey water. Emphasis on the water.

Taste - Honey water with lots of glassiness and some astringency. Finishes with a strange sweetness, as if it uses artificial sweetener. Sweetness ends somewhat abruptly, does not linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel - Light and refreshing. Good light feel.

Overall Drinkability - Decent beer. Worth a try.

The beer pours a golden, trending toward dark yellow, color. Very little foam rests above, but what was there was tenacious. The aroma of the beer is a mixture of grainy pale malts, green apple, and a hint of honey. Sweet upfront, as the grain takes over, but it dissipates as it moves toward the end, finishing with a whimper. A sweet residue lingers on the on the palate. The carbonation in the beer in just fine and feels fine slithering along. An average blonde ale.
