look: 3 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from a 12 fl oz bottle into a pint glass. For brewery fresh taste, purchase before FEB 14.

Appearance: Pours a hazy golden body with a thin white head.

Smell: Awful. Smells nauseatingly yeastier than my subpar homebrew.

Taste: Better than the aroma, but not by much. Again, the dull yeast flavor is overpowering. I definitely could replicate this in my kitchen - not that I would want to.

Mouthfeel: OK, I guess.

Overall: It is no wonder why blonde ales are so hard to make. It is truly an exact science to get rid of (or at least hide) all of the off flavors. The only way to make this beer better would be to hop (and/or lager?) the hell out of it.
