Poured this American Blonde Ale from a 12 oz bottle, into a pint glass. It poured a clear golden straw color, typical of a blonde ale. It produced an average white head, with good retention and very nice amount of lacing left on the glass. The aroma consists of malted grain, fresh and crisp- par for the course. Light in body, this Blonde Ale is smooth, easy to drink, has a base of malted grain, and a touch of hops at the finish. Decent session beer, nice summer beer, easy to drink - For a Blonde Ale its very good. Great Value. Prost!

A standard pour of Mission St.'s Blonde Ale yields a blonde-amber body and head with very little staying power. No more than three slim strings of bubbles lazily wind their way to the top. This should be a pleasant, relaxing beer to drink.

The nose is light. Toasted grain and bit of pineapple suggest themselves immediately. Thereafter appears a bit of raisin bread gently warming in an oven.

The taste follows the nose at first, but is let down in the end by an overuse of bittering hops. There are some nice candied fruit tones here. The brewers ought to have let them sing a bit more.

The feel of the brew is slightly more astringent and watery than expected (or desired!). Hmm.

I won't pick up a Mission St. Blonde the next time I'm at Trader Joe's. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to drink one if it were offered at a party.

12oz bottle no date that i could see

look is golden and clear, small head with lacing. smell is light sweet malts, hint of piney hops. taste is more like a cream ale, pleasant airy wheat and sweet malts. maybe too sweet.

For the price a solid beer. It was what I thought it would be. A sweetness to the beer, and a slight bitterness towards the end. It's a blonde ale, but I see hints of orange. This is more of a pilsner then an Ale. It's kind of a tug of war between the two styles, which is kind of nice.

You can defiantly drink more than one at time. Very drinkable. Not the greatest, but like I said for the price not bad. The beer did have a lot of carbonation. Overall average beer.

Looks like a pilsner with a darker amber hue. Smells like cereal and barley notes with some sweetness to it, let's take a sip...Yep, tastes just like it smells. Drinkable, but it's got a little hop bite to it in the end. Overall, not a bad beer, but I probably wouldn't want more than a couple of these; they're a bit boring.
