The blonde is a blonde. Blonde in appearance, blonde in aroma and taste: as in slightly sweet. Light blond in mouthfeel. This is a beer you could drink happily on a hot summer evening, but it does not seem to have the body for a chill, damp Rochester evening. I agree with the previous review (northyorksammy): maybe it placates the macro-crowd while you get to check out the vastly more robust Magnum 44 or the Black Magic Stout. They want to bottle this one?

A popular transitional ale to get Bud fans into a craft beer habit. Too carbonated and sweet for me, it merely shows the superiority of the rest of the lineup. This is what they want to bottle but I hope they show their beauties and not their value beer.
