Serving: 12 oz can (stamped “032118”), poured into a 7 oz Libbey Gibraltar glass.

Appearance: Clear, bright, pale golden yellow; with a tall, bubbly head of persistent white foam.

Smell: Freshly baked white bread, cracked grains, and faintly floral hops.

Taste: Light and grainy, malty body with a hint of sweetness; earthy, leafy hops, and clean, bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Light body with moderate carbonation and crisp feel.

Overall: Very drinkable, refreshing brew for Houston’s year round heat. Now an old standby, the first local brewery to put something more flavorful than AAL in a can.

Had on draft in a pint glass. It has a slightly dark yellow look. Not really much of a smell to it. It has a funky malt taste to it but goes down smooth with a little straw after taste. Not a bad local beer but not my favorite from Southern Star.

Draft, pilsner glass.

Light golden beer with a nice white head.

Lightly toasted, herbal bite. Crisp and biting in its cleanliness and simplicity.

Wheat toast, toasted grain, and great woody, herbal hoppiness. It isn’t hoppy, but they used enough for a wonderful, deep flavor that is complimentary to the showcase of what malt can be without being sweet.

The body is crisp and filled with energetic bubbles. This is a refresher.

For years I’ve discounted this beer. Blonde ales, what do they have to offer? Well, simplicity, complexity, the showcase of a brewer’s technical skill, and a damn delicious beer, that’s what!

Best by date on the bottom of the can. Excellent artwork. This is a lovely blond ale that would go great in your warmer months. Cheers! B
