Blonde Ales are not usually something I drink but I found I really enjoyed this one. It poured a golden amber with a big frothy white head and plenty of fruity malt in the aroma. For a lighter beer it had a nice full creamy mouthfeel with hints of fruit and apricot that I found appealing. This is not a complex in your face beer, but something that is light and refreshing with enough body to keep it interesting. A great beer for our hot Texas summer days.

12 oz can into tulip. no canned on date.

A: a lot of haze on a orange/blond body. head is bright white and bubbly. way too much haze for the style.

S: a slight oxidation. a lot of chewy pilsner malt. a little bit of sweet, bubblegum-like fruitiness.

T: similar to the nose, an obvious oxidation, but not to the point of un-drinkability. some grain. certainly in the finish. very limited bitterness.

M: average carb on a light body.

D: all-in-all not too shabby. eliminate the haze and the oxidation and you have a solid drinkable blond from this Texas brewery.

12 oz can served in a pint glass.
Light amber color; hazy; with a semi-durable head.
Light, watery body with medium carbonation.
Somewhat unappealing aroma with a better flavor.
Still very light flavoring. light citrus. Really needs more malt.
O: no reason to recommend this beer.

Good beer for those who like American Blonde Ales. I am not particularly a fan of this style but wouldn't mind drinking this one if there were no other styles available.

Good taste when you drink it but the aftertaste is not to my preference. The fact that it comes in a can is not optimal, I think that bottle would help the way this beer is drank.
