t: malts and light fruit with a low hop presence.
m: medium to thin body, good carbonation. clean grassy finish.
o: decent blonde, just kind of a bland style for me, but very enjoyable and drinkable.

A: This beer pours a golden body with a thin white head that quickly fades to nothing. There is also a bit of lace left behind on the glass.
S: Smells like lager yeast was used for this beer and has a corn/ grain smell.
T: This is a perfect spring/ summer beer for sure. It has a great lager taste with a nice amount of malt that lingers for a while. It has sort of a corn and biscuit taste too.
M: The mouthfeel is very nice. It goes down very smooth and has a nice tingle on the tip of the tongue and the back of the throat. Just so easy to drink.
O: Just another good beer from Real Ale. This is just so easy to drink and has a very nice taste.

The one thing I enjoy thoroughly about it is its nutty character. It has a grainy and lasting mouthfeel. It is in some ways similar to Real Ales Octoberfest when it comes to the nose. I love hopping back and forth between the two in a 22 oz mug, the wofts are euphoric, the warmer they get the better the stank. As the carbonation dies down the better the flavors come through. Real ale is underrated for sure, esp. if your a steady beer drinker. I like it, recommend it, and will drink it again. FYI its better than their rye, pale ale if your staring at the planogram and don't know which one to roll the dice on. Peace lkeys.

Pours golden and slightly cloudy with a modest head with minimal lacing. Aroma of citrus, floral, and maybe a bit of yeast. Flavor is similar to aroma, very smooth, even somewhat creamy, with mild hop aftertaste. Nice, drinkable blonde ale but nothing special.

12 oz. bottle poured into a mug. Best by 4-16-2012.
A- A nice golden color with a solid tan head which dissipates fairly quickly.
S- The smell is very lemony with hints of sweet malts.
T- You can taste the lemons and what i would describe as a biscuit flavor followed with a slight bitterness.
M - More carbonation that most other drinks. A good crisp feel.
O- I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. It had a great flavor and a nice appearance. I look forward to drinking some more.

On tap at our hotel bar in Dallas. doing an expedited review.
Not a whole lot to write home about with this one. It seems to be the go to local brew for most of the bars here in Dallas. A stepup from the normal BMC that they serve along with Shiner Bock (as I expectected). I was hoping my trip to Texas would have allowed me to try some new brews but it would appear the TX beer taste buds have not evolved much yet.
This one is a good upgrade for the BMC switchers/tweeners who want to branch out. Good earthy hop bitterness and some lemony enfluences too. Good carbonation.
It's beer. I drank it. End of post.
