Solid blonde. Nothing exceptional but was a good beer for the golf course. Easy drinking.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is lemon, wheat and malt. The flavor is a nice blend of citrus and malt. A decent version of a blonde ale.

Can. A darker blonde color. Darker than most blondes. Aroma is mild. Smells like a soft blonde ale. Flavor is more intrigung but not by much. I dont pick up much hoppiness. It is mostly a mix of cereal, yeast and biscuit. Not a beer that stands up to competition; this was one of several beers I sampled in a short period of time. This one came off as boring and the whole "Let's equate our Blonde Ale to a blonde chick" schtick makes me want to run into traffic.
