look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A-a clear pale blond with a shorter lasting head that leaves some nice lacing

S- not much to it. At least not that I noted.

T- it has a very mild but pleasant taste. An easy drinking flavor for hit weather

M- thinner but not bad. A slight hint of carbonation.

O- blondes are tricky. It comes pretty close and erratic on the side of being a little under than overwhelming.

First had: on tap at the brewpub in Tampa

This is not my style of beer, but for the style, this one was not TOO bad, especially considering most of TBBC's beer were not very good.

Clear golden pour with a small foamy white head; decent retention, minimal lacing. Light pale malt aroma, toasted grains, mild herbal hops. Taste was equally light and on the bland side, pale malts, light hops, cardboard. Light body, not very tasty, but drinkable for the style. Ask for a Miller Lite, and they'll give you this.

Looks like a perfect blonde ale. Shining, blonde golden color with awesome clarity and a two finger creamy white head, nice retention and ok lacing.

The aroma is an average blonde. Clean with hints of grainy, bready notes and subtle citrus hints. Very light.

Taste follows. Clean, crisp, easy drinking with faint hint of citrus, orange on a nice bed of fresh baked bread and a hint of caramel.

Clean, crisp, refreshing

Overall, an easy drinking, balanced, refreshing beer!
