very cool spot these guys have for themselves, and they appropriately had on a whole bunch of pale and lighter beers for the warm dallas weather. this seems to be one of their staples in house, and its not a bad beer, just a bit generic for a flagship type brand. maybe the good people of texas arent all familiar with a craft blonde ale, i can see this being an excellent sort of gateway craft experience, but it doesnt do much for the certified craft nut, other than maybe wet the whistle and get the party started. definitely the least exciting of their lighter offerings. a little honey malt sweetness in the center, and an extremely mild noble type hop on the very back end of it, but other than that, its good because its wet and its cold and it has nice carbonation. probably a great compliment to a heavy meal like texas bbq, something spicy or asian in nature, but as a standalone beverage, it was a little short on the flavor for me. i like the body though, its not watery or too lean, i think that keeps it feeling like a craft beer and i appreciate it. for a lighter offering in here thats truly unique and memorable while still being insanely drinkable, give their rye pils a shot instead...

Poured from a 12oz can into a curved pint glass.

Thin head and a slightly amber golden color.

Lots of biscuit malt on the aroma little to no hop flavor.

Thin body with a light malt.

Decent session drinker.

Very good and drinkable. Reminds me of a Blue Moon. Just as good. Being made in Texas kinda makes it better.

A little dark for a blonde, but with more flavor. Some citrus notes. Almost like a light amber ale. Overall very drinkable and good. Would definitely have again.
