Poured a light gold body with two finger head that died quick with a little lace retention. The smell is airy, not a complement, with some decent bitter citric hops and some grainy malts. Beer is light bodied, not watery but very light, smooth, easy to drink, balanced but very simplistic as I get a smattering of hops and some minor sweetness.

Thanks LambicKing!

Bright golden body with a steady stream of bubbles feeding a creamy white ring on top.

The smell is grain forward for sure. Lots of grain, with an earthy thing really taking over. A bit more sweet than other middle-tier blondes.

The taste is a bit sweeter and more slick than the average Blonde. I dont get a load of hops, but I dont mind. Its drinkable and sweet. It goes down easy and tastes good. Id drink this if it were hyper local to me.

Saw this beer at the grocery store so I thought I would give it a shot.

A-Poured a decent head with a nice golden color. It also had a good amout of tiny bubbles risng to the top of the glass the whole time i was drinking it.

S- When I smelled this, the first thing that came to mind was nuts. It had a slight nutty smell with a hint of hops.

T- Again the first thing that came to mind was something nutty. It finished with a qucick burst of light hops.

Overall, this beer was just ok. It's something else to drink with some friends other than bud. I don't think I would buy it again.
