3.28/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
12 oz bottle into my 32 oz mug. BA doesn't have it listed yet, but it's 3.5% abv
a: Pale yellow straw in color, 1/2 inch head that didn't hang out for too long, very minimal lacing, some carbonation bubbles making their way to the surface
s: Malty, and as others have pointed out, this is labled as an "ale" but I smell the adjuncts
t: Some more character than the BMCs of the world -- decent malty sweetness that is quickly quashed by hops. A good balance for a light beer.
m: Like soda water. Very light, very smooth, mild carbonation bite right after opening, though
o: This is a light beer. You can parse the "ale" or "lager" and ultimately all light beers up having the same comparable characteristics. I did find this one slightly more complex and satisfying, and even that may be because I love Steven's Point. A great go-to for yard work or a break to a simple, light beer. Great thirst quencher

3.74/5 rDev +21.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75
12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
3.5% ABV, "Refreshing ale with 110 calories."
A - Hello gorgeous! Drop Dead Blonde pours a slender, crystal clear pale straw yellow body topped by loose white locks of foam; sexy...for a moment. The effervescent head fades pretty quickly, and with it, the aroma. No lace left on the glass.
S - A beauty to look at, but boy does this blonde smell. Laden with sulfur, the loose head vanishes far too quickly to grab much more without a hearty swirl, but some floral, noble-like hop notes evaporate into the air briefly, followed by traces of honey sweetness, grainy pale malt, and a touch of corn.
T - Surprisingly hoppier than expected, Drop Dead Blonde has a noteworthy noble hop floral character that encases simple, dry pale malt graininess and a kiss of honey for a rather tasty light beer.
M - Very lager-like, this crisp, refreshing ale has carbonation bite to the finish that dries the palate out nicely while allowing some hop bitterness to linger on the tongue.
O - Drop Dead Blonde is labeled an ale, twice, but sure comes off lager-like! Crisp and clean, Drop Dead Blonde is crisp and refreshing light ale that drinks like a lager and quenches thirst with a nice floral hop profile. She's not a beer you'd want to put a ring on but flirt with this one on a hot day and it'll cool you off promptly.
