The beer pours a golden, trending toward dark yellow, color. Very little foam rests above, but what was there was tenacious. The aroma of the beer is a mixture of grainy pale malts, green apple, and a hint of honey. Sweet upfront, as the grain takes over, but it dissipates as it moves toward the end, finishing with a whimper. A sweet residue lingers on the on the palate. The carbonation in the beer in just fine and feels fine slithering along. An average blonde ale.

Isotopes Triple "A" Blonde

(Served in an American pint glass)

A- This beer has a very slight hazy to the dark orange hue body with a thin lacy white foam that are supported by a few random large bubbles of carbonation. There are a few tiny brown bits floating around in the glass aswell.

S- This beer has a clean flavor with a soft green pine note.

T- The light pale malt flavor has a slight iced tea flavor with a light tangy at the finish that has a hop quality to it. The after taste is a light corn and sulfur note that lingers for only a second.

M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a soft fizz coming through when it warms.

D-This beer doesn't have any off flavors but it is pretty light with not many flavors at all. It gets a little drab but might hit the spot if you are at a summer baseball game in the New Mexico heat.

Medium sized white head falls into a very thin lacing on a clear honey golden colored beer.

Light honey and caramel malt aroma.

A light caramel malt with hints of some sweet honey with just a a hops taste, a light bodied and tasting beer but in a very good way, I think I could kill at least 6 of these at a Isotopes game.

A very light caramel hint to the aftertaste that was wet nor dry, just slightly there.

If you are looking for a easy drinking beer with some good subdued tastes, try this.

Pours an old gold with a two finger white head. Carbonation bubbles evident. A very sweet aroma like strawberry candy. Sweet malt flavor. A refreshing ballgame beer that is sold at the Albuquerque Isotopes ballpark and can be purchased retail. Easy to put down a few over 9 innings.

Appearance - Clear straw body. Thin white lace.

Smell - Honey water. Emphasis on the water.

Taste - Honey water with lots of glassiness and some astringency. Finishes with a strange sweetness, as if it uses artificial sweetener. Sweetness ends somewhat abruptly, does not linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel - Light and refreshing. Good light feel.

Overall Drinkability - Decent beer. Worth a try.

Poured from a bottle into a pint, golden yellow. Beautiful head and lacing. Very fragrant and floral smell. Crisp feel and taste. Sweet, light with a little lemon. Very enjoyable!
