3.5/5 rDev +9.4%
A: Clear and pale orange in color with a medium sized off white head. Darker than I'd expect for a Blonde...
S: Aromas of sweet malt, white bread dough, some spice, apples and peaches. Straight forward, simple, and to the point. Nicely balanced.
T: Flavors are very similar. Fruity and brightly hopped with sweet doughy malts. Some tart lemon in the mix.
M: Slick, well carbonated, and dry through the finish. Light body.
O: This appears to be solid across the board. A decent, fairly simple, refreshing summer beer.

pours a clear yellow/light amber tone with a finger of off-white foamy head that soon dissipates into a thin collar around the glass; spotty lacing.
nose is pretty tame... i get subdued notes of breadiness and floral hops. flavor opens with a bready/biscuity presence which is followed by some mild hop characters... clean, crisp finish. again, fairly muted all around; by and large an unexiting, inoffensive beer.
light/medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. 'average' i think suits this entry across the board; the sort of light, easy drinking beer one might be inclined to session at the beach. even at that, i think i'd be inclined to look elsewhere.

Bottle served into a Port Brewing sampler glass at me friend's house in Orange, California. Reviewed live. Acquired at Trader Joe's for 50 cents.
A: Pours a half finger head of white colour, decent cream, fair thickness, and awful retention. Colour is a clear blonde.
Sm: Clean barley and malts. A moderate strength aroma. Bland and simple.
T: Hints of honey. Clean barley and malts. Straw. Very bland and boring. Not really balanced. Built blandly. Not full bodied.
Mf: Smooth and wet. A bit thin. A bit watery. Adequately carbonated. Complements the flavour decently.
Dr: Very drinkable, but rather boring and bland. I'd prefer more of the honey flavour. It's okay. I wouldn't get it again. A great budget beer if you're shopping at Trader Joe's.

L: Pours a nice clear darker yellow color with a medium sized and medium bodied white colored head that laces the glass a little as it fades fast.
S: Smells of sweet toasted malts, hints of citrus in there and a bit of hops at the end.
T: Tastes of sweet toasted malts upfront then followed with some light citrus and some slight hop finish at the end.
M: Crisp, fresh, refreshing, perfect amount of carbonation, light bodied.
D: Very drinkable beer, it's not too overwhelming and kind of tasty. Nice mix of flavor and feel for a pretty sessionable beer.

Pours a clear honey color with a 1/2 inch foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Thin rings of lace line the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt/grain, grass, and some slight fruity aromas. There is a distinct butter smell that emerges as the beer warms up. Taste is of malt/grain and grassy flavors. There is a slight herbal bitterness that quickly fades after each sip. This beer has a light level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel but a somewhat thin body. Overall, this is a pretty good blonde ale but nothing that I would get again. Very cheap for $1 a bottle at Trader Joe’s.

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!
