Not a bad beer by any means! Just that I had fond memories of this beer a little over a year ago. This time around since it was in a can and not on draft I'd say it lost its allure.

Far better than any macro blonde out there. Hands down.

But it wasn't great nor was it horrible. Just what you'd want to go fishing. A knockerbacker.

Pale golden, slightly cloudy. Nice white foamy head. Not a lot of aroma. Quite carbonated. Mild flavor. just the weensiest bit tangy and just a bit better than most mainstream beers. A nice ale for quenching a thirst on a hot day.

This is a tasty blonde ale. Not very hoppy but a light malt flavor with toasty notes. Pretty solid. The only problem with it is the description and picture on the can.

This is the beer that got me interested in craft beers a couple years ago. Still one of the better Blonde Ales I have had. Mix it 50/50 with their Cypress Strong Ale for a tasty Strong Blonde. Yummy!
