Tough to see its full appearance since the restaurant I was at did not provide a glass to pour my beer into. However, from what I saw it was a mostly clear blonde ale, with just a bit of sediment at the bottom of the bottle.
Not a terribly aromatic beer since I did not detect too much from this beer.
The taste was pleaseant and I cannot complain. It paired well with the chicken fried steak on a hot afternoon. Maybe just the slightest bit of sweetness like other have noted. Also I completely agree about letting this beer warm a bit to experience it full affest. I got it right out of the ice box and I was less than impressed, but as it warmed I "warmed" to the beer.
A descent mouthfeel and not the least bit heavy heavy on my palate. If in a bind and this was on a list, I would drink this beer over just about anything else especially in a macro sense. Nice effort for a go to beer from the folks in Blanco!

3.48/5 rDev +1.5%

Appearance- Looks like an adjunct lager. Super carbonated, golden, and slight head produced.
Smell- Not much here besides some grainy notes and slight citrus.
Taste- Grainy malts hit the tongue at first with lots of carbonation. Following that some citrus and bread malt lingers on the tongue.
Feel- Very carbonated. Clean and crisp, almost lager like.
Overall- This essentially seems like a tastier adjunct beer option, and it serves its purpose well. I would definitely get this as a substitute for bmc when out drinking. However, day to day this isn't worth putting in the rotation, especially with better beers within the style available.
