Tried this at a local tiki bar on a hot day, definitely refreshing for the first sip. I also bought it in the can and had at home in a cold glass.
The look is great, nice blonde pale color, nice finger or so bright white head when pouring.
The smell is a bit off, you get an initial sweet malt with some citrus followed by a little souring aroma.
The taste is similar, crisp for an ale, malty, no real citrus in the flavor, but follows with a slight sour. Again, initially tastes nice but has an off aftertaste.
Overall, underwhelmed with it. Very surprised with the high rating on Ba.
This is a beer I really wanted to enjoy, as I homebrew blonde ale and was looking for something to keep in the refrigerator between brew and bottling cycles.

Gold in color. Citrus taste masked by maybe some honey and other mixtures. A brief taste of malt.

3 Daughters Brewing "Beach Blonde Ale"
12 oz. can
$1.67 @ Trader Joe's #766, Tampa, FL

Appearance: Slightly hazy golden body with a bit of an orange cast below a short but creamy head of bright white. Average retention and lacing.

Aroma: Sweetish golden malt backed by light citrusy hops.

Flavor: Sweetish golden malt backed by light, lemony hops. Balanced. Drying finish with more malt than hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light in body with a crisp carbonation.

Overall: Basic golden ale with limited yeasty character and just a spritz of citrusy hops. Name appropriate, great served cold on a hot day.

Looks ok, smells ok, tastes like iced tea lightly sweetened with malt sugar...Another weird-out from the Tampa bay area... I was expecting more malt character.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a rich golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, honey, some citrus. Taste is citrus up front, bready malts at the finish balanced, smooth. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good thirst quencher.

Look is an amber/ orange yellow with a thin head.

Aroma is light with herbal grassy notes.

Taste is a little funky off with a lot of thin malt to it.

Too bad it was a decent beer till it got to the taste. Just needs to work on balancing that malt a little more.

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.
