an extremely basic blonde ale here, not much to this one, a real pale yellow color from the tap without as much head as id like to see but fine clarity. aroma is basic pale malt, a little pils crackery vibe to it, and almost no appreciable hops or yeast profile at all. the flavor is similar, with a delicate breadiness to the grain, and just a faint hop bitterness to close it out, not quite bone dry, but getting there, and slightly european, kolsch-esque, crispish, but incredibly straightforward. i found this to be a bit boring personally, but its not poorly made. in the context of the hot and humid new orleans weather, a beer like this served up ice cold sounds mighty appealing, but i thought it wasnt quite carbonated enough to be perfectly refreshing, and its a drink quick kind of thing, as it didnt taste as nice at room temperature. i didnt really love either beer i had from tin roof, but this one was plenty drinkable and probably a goo gateway to craft type beer for those not yet over the macro lagers. for me this one was just so so.

Appearance: golden yellow in color with a short 1/4" head that broke down quickly.

Smell: a bit of grass and some bready tones comes through to the nose.

Taste: mild malt presence with grass, hint of lemon zest, and a soft bitterness.

Mouthfeel: lighter in body. Crisp from start to finish. Almost clean aftertaste.

Overall: a very light flavored beer that leaves you wanting for a bit more.

Poured from a yellow and purple, LSU-inspired 12 oz can. Thanks to my brother for bringing these cans to me. The beer pours a clear straw color with a white head. The aroma has a nice pilsner/biscuit malt aroma, with a little bit of grain thrown in. The flavor is more of the same. There is a nice grass and light orange citrus tone, with some sweet biscuit malt. The bitterness is very low. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall, a very easy to drink, refreshing blonde ale. Glad I got to try this one.

Taste is toasted malt, lemon, grass, and a bit of grain. This is a nice, clean, sessionable, and sweet ale. Nothing I would rush out to get, but good for the style. I would get this again.

Tin Roof Blonde has a thick, slightly off-white head and a clear, fairly bubbly, golden appearance with some thick lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of lemon, biscuit, and tap water. Flavor is of faint citrus fruit, bready barley malt, mild hops, and tap water. Mouthfeel is watery, and Tin Roof Blonde finishes refreshing, pleasant, and easy going. Overall, this is a simple, yet very good beer. It was created to be a tailgating beer, and in that respect, it fulfills its mission almost to perfection.

Poured from tap at Portico in Monroe, LA. Pours a slightly brownish golden. No head or lacing but it looks a bit more brown than a blonde should be..but it looks good.
Smell is very mild if barely present at all...just some malts and typical "beer" aroma.
Taste is great though. Its crisp and malty but has a really mild hop flavor. Really smooth and super easy to drink, plus it really has a lot of body for the style. Great session brew. Overall, nice brew and I can't believe it hasn't been reviewed yet?! Worth a try if you see it.

Pours a clear blonde color, bone white head.

The aroma was quite bready and biscuity, with a touch of grassy hop notes.

Tastes of bread crusts, biscuits, and grassy hops. Minimal bitterness.

Nice light feel, refreshing, good carbonation.

Blondes are kinda boring, but they can be a refreshing choice and this fits the bill.
