This actually isnt a bad beer. Of course its never going to rate highly here. Light-bodied, light-colored beers dont stand a chance around here. But it is really pretty good for what it is. The appearance really isnt very promising. The pale gold body really would make it hard to differentiate this from a macro lager. The aroma also plays some tricks on the mind. If you gave this to me in a blind taste test I never would have guessed it was a blonde ale like the label claims. I would have pegged it as a really fresh sample of some Bohemian pilsner or one of the better, but less aggressive American takes on the style. The hops arent huge in this, but do stand up beneath the firm, dry straw/hay maltiness. Another example of ABC becoming a much better brewery than it once was and becoming a source of some solid session beers.
