A&S - Pours a pale straw yellow with a small amount of white head which was very bready, other aromatic notes of piney hops, sweet light malt and some citrus.

T&M - Sweet right off the bat, very carbonated, nice use of bittering hops makes a well balanced light body beer, however the flavor lacks a superior characteristic.

O - A fair beer, but not something to go out of your way for.

I picked up a 22oz. at the one and only Tom's Place, The clerk pointed out six packs were also available for those who wanted to enjoy some brews on the lakes. The six packs now seem very appealing. As I mentioned before this one lacked a wow factor, which in this plain style beer, makes everything considering the drinkability level and plethora of brewers to choose from. Now that I've had this beer, I now see it as a beer i'll buy a sixer of on my way to the lakes, not a 22oz. that i'll recommend to friends, Etc. Not that this beer isn't any good, but beside light malt and light hops there not much to enjoy. Mammoth Brewing Co. is currently 1:0 on the 4 beers I purchased. I considering this a win for i'll be buying more next year as a session lager. Next up is the 395 IPA which looks very interesting. Check Mammoth Brewing out for some cool beer, cool bottles, cool merchandise, and all that other good stuff that makes this fizzy stuff all worth livin' for. Stay thirsty my friends.

Thanks to Mo for sending this one my way.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Not much retention leaving a very thin white cap on top. White lacing forms all around.

S: Faint grassy hops and a little bit of citrus. There is some grainy malt and a slight soapy aroma.

T: Flavor profile is a bit cleaner, more of the grassy hops with some biscuity malt.

M: Crisp and easy drinking, medium bodied.

O: Pretty good, easy drinking lager. Nothing out of this world, but on the other hand, I have not come across many ABAs that are.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pilsener glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. It has a large, billowy, rocky, white head with decent retention that leaves scattered lacing.

S: The overall aroma is kind of muted, but there is a backbone of mild hops and biscuit-y and light sweet bread-y malts. Strong grain and grassy aromas are also present.

T: There doesn't seem to be much going on here. There are the light hops and bread-y malts tastes that remind you of the nose, but other than that, it seems kind of boring.

M: It is medium bodied with a slick, oily feel to it. It is a very clean drink, but is somewhat still despite the appearance of a high carbonation level.

O: I wasn't very impressed with this one. It won't deter me from trying others from Mammoth since they are relatively close. I look forward to what else they have to offer, but I probably won't be revisiting this one again soon.

Another canned craft beer, nice!

Can says this is a Pilsner not a Blonde Ale, also says 5.5% ABV.

Pours a hazy gold color with a big rocky white head. Nice lacing too.

Aromas are grassy, with some citrus, lemon, and spices.

Taste is clean, and pretty simple. Soft creamy mouthfeel, with some mildly sweet malt flavors up front. Finish is crisp and dry, with some faint doughy, spicy and floral hop notes.

Mouthfeel is good, very smooth, with good body.

Overall, it's a pretty good beer. Flavors are simple, but pleasant, not sure I'd grab this is again, but it's quite refreshing and drinkable.

Labeled #5 from flexabull. 12oz can poured into NB globe.

A: Can cracks open silently. Uhoh is this flat? No, billowing two inches of frothy white head dump out of the can as I pour, clear yellow liquid. 4.0

S: a hint of corn and a ton of biscuit malt. minimal citrus hops present - like how an old Fat Tire would smell w/o the belgian yeasts. 2.5

T: Cookie, doughy, biscuit malts. A touch of corn and oats as well. That's all I can get out of this. There may be the slightest hint of floral or citrus hop bitterness at the end. 2.5

M: Light to light-medium body, smooth and easy drinking. 3.5

O: Kinda bland, one dimensionally malty. I wish there were more hops and less biscuit malt. 2.5

Light golden color with a modest hear and average carbonation in the mouth. Not much aroma.

This has an odd resiny taste that is hard to place. Slight bitter aftertaste. Slightly perfumey. Sweet straw flavor with an overripe fruit flavor, now that's the weird part. Sticky. A hit of something like sweet Vermouth. Artificial flavor watermelon hard candy.

This is pretty much the reason Blonde Ales don't get much respect. And I don't think this is a very good example of a style that sometimes surprises on the upside. From the 12 oz bottle purchased at Bine & Vine in San Diego.
