2.93/5  rDev -19.9%

Appearance: Pours a clear yellow body with a full, foamy white head.

Smell: Light aroma of lightly sweet-smelling cereal with no more than a pinch of floral hops.

Taste: Light maltiness with a decent amount of sweetness that soon blends into a floral hop flavor with a subdued bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Drinkability: What can I say? It's a Blonde Ale!

3.9/5  rDev +6.6%

On-tap at the brewpub.

Pours a clear straw color with a one-finger white head. The head recedes into a wispy layer on top leaving solid lacing.

Smells of crisp light malts with hints of floral and grassy hops and even lighter amounts of indistinct light fruits.

Tastes similar to how it smells. Crisp light malt flavors kick things off and are joined quickly by earthy and slightly grassy hop flavors. The flavors sweeten a bit midway through the sip and the mild sweetness carries through to a mildly bitter ending.

Mouthfeel is good. It's got a nice thickness with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability is also good. I finished my glass without a problem and could have another.

Overall I think this is the best beer I've had from MBC - not earth-shattering but worth a shot if you're at the brewpub.

Had this during the holiday season of 2009 while visiting family and friends.
While not really a style I usually like, it does work well with the climate and tastes down here...hence why I gave it a shot.
Arrives a typical golden color with a cap of foam.
Smells pretty hoppy compared to what I expected. Noble hops I'm guessing?
The taste is clean and surprisingly flavorful with hops and just a hint of fruitiness. I prefer a good pils/export/hell to a blonde ale, but there's not really anything wrong with this beer at all.
Easy drinking and well crafted.
I can see this being a good alternative for the macro drinkers that want something better, but aren't ready for something bolder.
As far as blondes go - they really don't get much better than this.
Recommended, and I can imagine this would be great on a hot day.

3.83/5  rDev +4.6%

A: Pretty thin looking blonde. Slightly cloudy with little head and very minimal lacing.

S: Very faint aromas, almost non-detectable. Slight pilsner malt.

T: Clean and refreshing. This is a very simple beer that pairs well with my spicy gumbo, seeing as how I can gulp it and it's unoffensive. There is a subdued pilsner-like taste that could be brought out more, giving the beer more depth and flavor.

M: Very thin, watery. No astringency.

D: It's easy to drink a few of these if it's all you have. When in Rome...

Notes: One of the better beers from this brewery.

3.83/5  rDev +4.6%

A: Pours a bright golden yellow with a creamy white head that sticks around for a long, long time. The head looks like lightly whipped heavy cream. It deposits thick, creamy lace on the glass all the way down. A great appearance for a blonde ale.

S: Lightly grainy malt aromas balanced well with some slightly herbal/spicy hops and a bit of light fruitiness. A bit bland, but not bad at all.

T&M: Clean grainy, lightly sweet malt flavor is quickly cut by a spicy hop flavor from the Saaz hops. There's a distinct and light fruitiness midway through. The finish is crisp, lightly sweet, and long. A very refreshing beer. Body is light with a crisp feel, well attenuated but not over-carbonated.

D: A well crafted blonde ale. Drinks very easily, especially on a hot summer day. This beer is the brew-pub's most well-known, and for good reason.
