Mayday Brewery "Boro Blonde"
on tap @ Mafiaoza's Pizzeria

Notes: Clear deep gold body beneath a bright white head that holds very well and leaves some nice spotty lacing behind. The aroma displays floral and spicy hops, a lightly sweet golden malt, and a hint of yeasty fruitiness. The flavor follows. Well balanced by a firm bitterness. Clean and dry finish. Basic but well-made.

i feel like a lot of newer craft breweries have these types of beers. something to win a few tap handles around town at restaurants, mass appeal yellow type beer without much special about it, but crafted and local, and so therefore good in the eyes of the popular beholder. for me, this is lazy and generic, they could have done a lot more with it, and while there is no doubt that this beer is made by people that know what they are doing, the point of a beer like this is lost on me. i had others that they made, all more adventurous and equally well done, why make such a simple beer that tastes like tens of thousands of others out there. nothing special with the yeast or hops or malt bill or anything. its refreshing with soda-like carbonation, and it holds its head really well, so it looks nice, but its entirely forgettable. my dad would love this because its better than molson and labatt, but it doesnt offer anything new at all. tasty if you feel like a refreshing blonde ale, but lackluster when looking for local flavor during a trip.

Pretty weak. Marketed as a gateway beer from Bud, and that's pretty much what you get. Reddish ale with reasonable smell and mouthfeel, but absolutely nothing memorable in the taste.

Blondes aren't my favorite, but as they go this one would be my recommendation for anyone interested.
