I like it. I'm not a snob, I just like things that taste good. This is a nice refreshing summer bbq sort of ale. Orange and coriander are pretty apparent.

Very light, pretty watery, but definitely a good enough beer for summer. Pours a foggy orange color. Not much aroma. Enough citrus flavor to give it that crisp, refreshing taste.

Very pale yellow, no head. Not much aroma, slight citrus. Taste about the same, slight sweet and citrus. Very thin/watery. Probably be a decent hot day beer. Not much better then coors light.

Dirty Blonde is a great summer beer and the slight citrus flavor is just right in my opinion - not to much, not to little. Taste wise it's not as bitter as Oberon, but a little less sweet than Shock Top.
