I'm not a hipster but I do enjoy this on my boat and on the beach. Really good!

Bought it at the local gas station with my fiancé. When we tried it we both recoiled from the taste that she said was “like leather.”
I’ve had bitter brews, but I actually had to hold my nose to drink it because I stupidly spent 6 dollars on a pack and I wanted to at least get a small buzz.

Poured from a freshness dated 12 oz. can: deep, clear and bright golden hue with a foamy white head; looks an awful lot like a Czech pilsner.

Faint aromatics of noble hops and yeasty bread.

Now, this is a very nicely flavored blonde ale - sweet and perfumy entry followed by some faintly bitter hops. While it is not a hugely complex ale, it remains interesting, refreshing and immensely quaffable.

Most surprising is the mouthfeel - soft and rounded mouthfeel with a lingering bitterness on the palate; not your typical blonde. This is a very good choice for a pre-fourth of July.

Pours a clear blonde color with a white head. Smell was grassy ,hoppy and biscuit. Taste followed nose with cracker bread,lemongrass and malt. A crisp and sweet mouth feel. This brew is as advertised, and was a nice change of pace with some pizza.

On-tap at The Galley, St. Petersburg, FL

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin, bright white head that died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of cracker malts and lemons are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and has light flavors of cracker malts with hints of lemons and a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and the hints fo lemons in the smell and taste prevent this from being overly bland. I would consider this to be a a classic lawnmower beer.

Serving type: on-tap

nothing really wrong with this blonde ale, its just sort of unremarkable and not all that great. the issue for me with it, is that in the hot florida sun, i want my blonde ale to be so darn crisp and refreshing that i can (and want to!) pound them down in just a couple swigs and crack the next one before it warms up. this is middle of the road in some key areas for the style like dryness and lightness, although it is very well carbonated and hits the mark there. it has a little more residual sugar than i need in this context, even a little caramel malt or something there out of place and even a little rich for the style, and it has a little more body than is ideal in hot weather too. i get a weird bready element that i dont love in the grain, but the flavor otherwise is simple and fine, clean ale yeast and faint honey and grassy hops at the end, also very light. its decent beer but nothing more, and this might work better in a temperate climate than it does in a tropical one. i didnt quite quench me completely on boat day, but i did not at all dislike it...

12 FL OZ can. Light amber color with a slight haze. Less than inch of white head. Light biscuit and caramel notes. Toast flavor with mild bitterness. Medium to light mouthfeel. Easy drinker on a hot Florida day.

This CAN came to me not in a trade, but as a gift for doing a fellow BA a solid. I am still not back on the trading floor, nor will I be until the backlog has been fully eradicated. That said, it was a really nice thing for someone to send me beer in furtherance of The CANQuest (tm)! Merci beaucoup.

From the CAN: "A balance of malts and hops"; "24 IBU"; "It's Easy On the Tongue"; "Refreshing and bright, St. Pete Beach Blonde Ale finishes with a satisfying hint of citrus - a bombshell of a brew that brings the Florida coast to your palate."; "Don't forget to recycle".

Here at The CANQuest (tm), we love to recycle! I am hoping to get down to the recycling yard next Saturday, but not with this CAN. Craft (& other) beer CANs are set aside for Jeff Lebo of York Haven, PA.

The Crack! began with some initial foaming through the vent, but when it did not seems to be abating, I finally had to pull the trigger & begin a slow, gentle Glug. It had gone through some USPS redirection thanks to a stupid neighbor & its sister had pooched out the top by the time that they finally arrived. Once I had things going, it was fairly under CANtrol, forming two-plus fingers of foamy, rocky, bone-white head with good retention. Color was a gorgeous Yellow-Gold (SRM = 4 - 5) with NE-quality clarity, enticing the Gelt Gang of Croesus, Midas & Mammon to pay me a visit. Really, it was like liquid sunshine in my glass. Nose had an odd citrusy tang, but would it be "satisfying"? Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, but highly carbonated. The taste was a little too grapefruit-citrusy for my liking, but still not bad. I was really reminded of Squirt pop, which is not a bad thing. It still makes for an excellent mixer. My bugaboo with this one was that I like my Blondes to be fairly innocuous, where this one was standing out from the crowd with its citrusy tang. Finish was semi-dry to dry, but I still found myself wondering if this was a Blonde Ale that I would want in my cooler.

Found a six pack at a Publix in Lake Wales, Fl. I had just spent a 100 degree day at Legoland...any beer would've been good. It's a good beer that might be a little underrated by the current reviewers. Any easy summer time brew.

Hot day on St. Pete Beach, nearby bar served this and it was a godsend! Not much of a blonde ale fan but it was wonderfully refreshing in the context.

This beer is light bodied and does well with the Florida heat. "A good beer to take out on the boat." 3 Daughters only cans beer (bummer). Pours with a burst of head. The nose is pleasant with hits of pine. Tingles the tongue with a slight yeast after taste. I'd say this is a very drinkable beer.
