2.82/5  rDev -11.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

On tap at the brewery.

Appearance: Light golden color with hardly any head.
This is a modified kolsch. A bit too sweet. Mild flavor and aroma.

Feel: Light body with medium=lght carbonation. Seems a bit undercarbonated.

O: an unchallenging kolsch-like beer. Well hidden ABV.

Had it at my University pub on draft

L: It is a pretty golden color, not much head.

S: Smells sweet, with hints of malt and hops. I has a slight alcohol smell

T: It tastes of malt and a slight hint of hops. It's a bit sweet. The hop bitterness prevents the sweetness from being too coying.

F: It is a light to medium body brew, smooth mouthfeel. Easy to drink.

O: I liked this beer, its a bit too sweet, but would go great with savory food. It's a fun drink, but if you like your beer stronger, or with more hoppy freshness try something else.

On tap at County Line BBQ in San Antonio

This was an easily drinkable beer with no flaws and also nothing that stood out in a positive way. Pleasant but forgettable.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy yellow glass holds a finger of white rocky head that laces the glass.

Aroma: Yeasty with a sulfur edge and some underlying sweetness peeking through.

Taste: A slight metallic bitter hop note serves as a counter balance to the sweet grainy base that finishes with some citric notes of grapefruit and lime peel.

Mouthfeel: Sudsy, high carbonation in a medium body that goes a bit frothy but has enough depth to carry it off. A little gritty texture and a slightly dry finish.

Overall: A bit big to be a Blonde Ale, lots of hops and lots of base make this a tasty brew, but not the easy drinking lawnmower I expect in a Blonde. There are some flavors that don't do it for me personally, but I'm hard pressed to call them flaws, just differences of preference. A good introduction to the brewery, a blonde is one of the toughest beers to make. I'll be looking to try more.
