Tasted in a pint glass from draft at Fairpark Grill on March 26, 2018. Light and crisp and refreshing, 30A Beach Blonde is crafted at the beach, for the beach. It's ideal for long relaxing days and for those with an active Emerald Coast lifestyle.

Grayton brewing another beach, another blonde, Yeasty, fruity greeting, so soft on lips, her skin must stay away from the beach sun most days and use special oils and lotions. Years younger than it appears. Sipping it is like learning to appreciate how intentionally gently a clumsy brute like me must adjust when touching a woman. Clear enough to see your toes when neck deep in water. Sweet enough to skip desert and eat her instead. Just enough bitterness to wash the salt and sand off your body before getting into the car. Foam is quiet as watching clouds float by. I’d buy this again, seems like their best offering.

Pours a soft, soapy white head. Soft, biscuity-yeast aroma. Hazy, straw yellow color. Starts with a very nice, pleasant maltiness with a touch of sweetness and spice. A touch thin in body. Finish is more smooth malt and spice on top.

This is pretty nice. Malt-centric goodness.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with minimal head.
Smell is grassy with lemon. A bit of a dank, sour odor.
Taste is citrus/lemon with some sweet malt. Mild hops. Tastes better than it smells.
Crisp and refreshing but kind of average.
