For those that do sessions, Lonely Blonde is decent. (And I won't do innuendos, I promise.)
Average Looks (I'd like a more inviting foam.) Smells of sweetish malt, a touch of herbs and cheap perfume as a lure. (There he goes again.) Tastes are largely the same, but I get a burst of citrus and, with some skill, a dry finish. Average mouth. (Close!)

I planned on having this with dinner, but I really want something more exciting. And while Fulton's taproom has many interesting brews, I'm not there.

I give extra OA points for being the first alternative taproom in Minneapolis. While their more recently added menu would not bring me in twice to the taproom, their beers might. And their community feel and bike-riding activities catch my interest. And while I enjoyed all three of my visits to the Twin Cities, I have none planned. Since I got this copy in Wisconsin, Fulton, regrettably, may be one and done.

From the tall boy can in a snifter. This solid blonde pours a nice
clear staw colored blonde with a decent head of white foam that settles
to a thick ring, thin light pool, and displays some subtle soapy lacing.
Nose of breaded malts, grain notes, and subtle herbal notes. Flavors
show a nice balance with lightly sweet breaded malts and grain notes
with a light grassy and herbal hop zing on the rear with a touch of
lemon zest. Decent mouth feel; sessionable, smooth, medium light
carbonation, medium light body, and a moderately sweet and lightly
herbal; grassy finish.

Overall, a solid little brew that is worth trying and sitting
down for a session.

Cheers

A thanks to the founding father of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of bready malts, grains. Taste has plenty of malts, some oranges, a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid thirst quenching beer.

Pours a slightly hazy medium yellow/gold with persistent significant head.
Smell is sweet, bready malt.
Taste starts off with sweet malt followed by a mild, citrus hop finish.
Well balanced, solid beer.

Happy New Cut a Single in Minneapolis, MN Beer Sunday (Week 668)!

As usual, I have a planned theme for today. Here in PA, we get distro from seemingly everywhere & it is tough to keep up with all of the newest releases. It is even more spectacular that they are coming to us in CANs for the furtherance of The CANQuest (tm). Let the fun CANtinue! 

From the CAN: "MLPS Made"; "The first drink is magic. The second is intimate. The third is love."; "Ordinary guys brewing extraordinary beer."

I scoured the pint CAN for any reason not to CANduct an inverted Glug following the Crack!, so I threw caution to the wind & did exactly that. I wound up with just over two fingers of dense, foamy, rocky, bone-white head that was CANsiderate enough to leave some nice lacing in its wake. Color was a gorgeous Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5) with NE-quality clarity, prompting a long-overdue visit from The Gelt gang of Croesus, Mammon & Midas, all vying for a taste. Nose had a grassily-hopped bready maltiness & I was jonesing for my first sip. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, not watery, but not terribly beyond it, either. The taste was light, ethereal & kind of innocuous. It had a light breadiness and a light grassiness, but nothing that stood out from either direction. It was pleasant enough, but I just was not being drawn in. Finish was semi-dry, refreshing, but just not sustaining as a whole.
