look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

A: medium depth gold color with decent head retention and lacing. Medium carbonation.
S: not much hop smell but it was there.
T: weak for an ale. No fruit profile as an ale should have but not bad either. Just kinda lacking in flavor . A narrow flavor profile for an ale.
M: nice medium light mouthfeel.
O: a tad let down but it is a clean tasting ale with just enough hops to balance the sweetness of the malt. If your not a big hop lover this is a decent all malt pale ale that goes down very easily.

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, 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.

St. Pete Beach Blonde Ale, from 3 Daughters Brewing, has a thick, off-white head, a somewhat hazy, golden appearance, a few ascending bubbles, and a couple or three lacing rings left on the glass. The aroma is of sweet, ever-so-slightly spicy malt and a dash of lemony citrus. Taste is of sweet malt and moderately grassy/citrusy bitter hops. Mouthfeel is medium, and St. Pete Beach Blonde Ale finishes fairly dry and very easy going.
