On tap at the Common Table in Dallas. The beer pours a yellow-gold color with a white head. The aroma is full of grain with some lemon notes. The flavor is similar, with some grain and toffee character, as well as some citrus notes - mainly lemons and oranges. Low to no bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains and malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes clean. Simple beer here.

A: 3.25 - Crystal clear light color with a moderate initial head that fades very quickly to nothing.
S: 3.25 - Extremely faint scent of malt and perhaps a hint of hops, if I put my nose right up to the beer.
T: 3.5 - Malt is clean and slightly sweet (and not grainy) with a moderate bitterness. No yeast flavor to speak of. Well-attenuated, with a medium-dry finish.
M: 3.75 - Neutral texture, nicely carbonated
O: 3.5 - One very boring beer, though there are no real faults. If you want an inoffensive and yet not bad ale, this is a good choice.

Weighting (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.41.

Appearance: Hazy blonde glass shows a torrent of bubble streams that feed a thin white cover.

Smell: A bit phenolic, some fruity esters, some metallic edge, wet grain, floral hops, a lot going on, some of it good.

Taste: Yeasty "beer" taste, that's to say a standard American Lager, but there is a lot of flavors competing for attention. Peach, lemon, grain, citric peel, hint of earthy hops, and all of it manages to be fairly clean.

Feel: Prickly carbonation, medium body seems heavier than it should, a bit slick in the finish.

Overall: A double Blonde? Not your typical "don't offend anyone" approach, Revolver comes out shooting. Not my style of choice, but I don't minding sipping this one.
Worth a try, and cheers to another Texas Brewery!

Nice blonde ale, decent body, a little sweetness and bannanayness (I know what I said) stays with you at the end. Seems like in Texas the blonde ale is the craft version of light beer, and this one is quite serviceable IMO.
