This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a soft light yellow color with a fair transparency about it. Some carbonation could be seen rising at a moderate pace. Flimsy white head quickly died off. Not much lace. The aroma had some sweet freshly cut grassy notes, light lemon, some sweet corn. The flavor was sweet through the previously mentioned aromas to arrange as I expected in the aftertaste and finish. The feel was light bodied with a great crushability about it. ABV felt as projected. Overall, pretty nicely done blonde ale.

Much lighter than I'd expected it's a pale light yellow more akin to something out of a 'team can.' Decent white head with lacy loopy froth and decent retention.

Nose is definitely a hill country thing with an almost murky note -- you can almost smell the humidity. There's also some biscuity malts and light grassy hops in there as well.

Sure, there's some flavour there, but it sure doesn't stick around. Those same malts lead off, again with a token nod to some grassy hops in there somewhere, but overall this just isn't providing much to distinguish it. It doesn't need to be a volcano of flavours to excite: there's plenty of room for mellow easy drinking afternoon delights, but even in that arena I find myself just feeling... meh.

Prickly carbonation and an easy drinking body, sure, but I just don't really find myself compelled to drink more of it. Oh well. They can't all be winners!

It tastes like budweiser.

Pale gold (4) pour with white head; decent cap retention; moderate lace; excellent clarity. Baked bread and floral nose. Baked bread and slightly herbal tongue. Moderate plus carbonation with zippy lite mouthfeel. Not much here other than lite floral hops. Easy drinking.

Nothing fancy but I love it. Just a nice, light refreshing beer. Not too hoppy but you still get a slight hint of it.
Love supporting local beers as well so this has been a summer go-to when I don't feel like living the high life.
