2.9/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Even listed under the Blonde Ale tag, this beer is just too light for me.

Pours a very thin, bright yellow with little head. Smells of lemon, and almost riverbed stones come into play.

Taste is somewhat sour due to strong presence of lemon. Nothing about this beer says ale... it's all blonde.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pale, straw-colored; thick foamy head of very fine bubbles; good head retention.

S: Faint wheat aroma.

T: Faintly of wheat, no other dominant flavors, no perceptible hoppiness.

M: Light and modestly carbonated.

O: Refreshing but unimpressive and fairly bland. Nothing too bold, no strong flavors that "jumped out" at the palate. Would not seek this out again.

2.68/5  rDev -19%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A: A glass consuming bright white head dominates the vessel with a sturdy, rocky foam structure. A strong sense of swirling effervesce rises within a pale brass coloring that showed a brilliant clarity. Patchy, sporadic lacing.

S: Pale grains, straw and not much else. Very mundane, no spiceness, boring.

T: A bit washy flavor-wise, dry wheat, some stale dry oranges, and grapefruit hopping. Damp musky grains, some brief moments of hope and flavor where i thought this turned the corner were only met with the disappointing realization that this wasnt really good with a weak washy finish.

M: Again a washy mouthful, light body, stale citrus and for such a strong visisble carbonation presence it felt really fizzy on the tongue lacking a crisp factor. Washy musky citrus feel.

O: Keegan ales continues to disappoint me with their boring, bland interpretations that probably may get attention from the macro-craft crowd, but gets lost in the swill with the more demanding craft flavored drinker. No frills, watery down flavor and just not up to style on this one, watered down.
