Thanks to Mo for sending this one my way.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a foamy white head. Not much retention leaving a very thin white cap on top. White lacing forms all around.

S: Faint grassy hops and a little bit of citrus. There is some grainy malt and a slight soapy aroma.

T: Flavor profile is a bit cleaner, more of the grassy hops with some biscuity malt.

M: Crisp and easy drinking, medium bodied.

O: Pretty good, easy drinking lager. Nothing out of this world, but on the other hand, I have not come across many ABAs that are.

Clear golden ale with a medium sized white head. No Trout in the bottle.

Smells clean and mildly sweet. Mild noble hop scent, mostly hay and grass. This is your standard easy going lager.

Starts out mildly sweet with mostly a toasted grain flavor. Grain and very slight bitterness. They hop is both saffron and hay in flavor. Tasty enough to be interesting but nothing that would challenge your Pabst loving relatives.

Medium mouthfeel.

Overall tasty yet friendly beer. Something that would go with anything be it the Beach or a steak dinner.

Poured from a 12oz can into a pilsener glass.

A: Pours a clear golden color with a carbonation level that is on the higher side. It has a large, billowy, rocky, white head with decent retention that leaves scattered lacing.

S: The overall aroma is kind of muted, but there is a backbone of mild hops and biscuit-y and light sweet bread-y malts. Strong grain and grassy aromas are also present.

T: There doesn't seem to be much going on here. There are the light hops and bread-y malts tastes that remind you of the nose, but other than that, it seems kind of boring.

M: It is medium bodied with a slick, oily feel to it. It is a very clean drink, but is somewhat still despite the appearance of a high carbonation level.

O: I wasn't very impressed with this one. It won't deter me from trying others from Mammoth since they are relatively close. I look forward to what else they have to offer, but I probably won't be revisiting this one again soon.

Pours a yellow and golden color with ample clarity and a soft 1/3" head. Aroma of light malt, Munich, and maybe some non descript grain and hay.

Taste is a beer similar to the macros, but with a little less sweetness and 100% barley. The hopping is minimal, the carbonation is high. This is one of those beers that they sing about in the country songs about how you want it ice cold because the girl is so hawt. It is a decent option for that person who isn't about beer but will drink one. The slightest sweetness and bitterness. A standard blonde ale. 25 ibu I would guess. No off flavors. I wouldn't shit on the beer just because it is what it aims to be a mild pilsner that keeps the lager feels way down. The yeast doesn't really provide anything here.

Another canned craft beer, nice!

Can says this is a Pilsner not a Blonde Ale, also says 5.5% ABV.

Pours a hazy gold color with a big rocky white head. Nice lacing too.

Aromas are grassy, with some citrus, lemon, and spices.

Taste is clean, and pretty simple. Soft creamy mouthfeel, with some mildly sweet malt flavors up front. Finish is crisp and dry, with some faint doughy, spicy and floral hop notes.

Mouthfeel is good, very smooth, with good body.

Overall, it's a pretty good beer. Flavors are simple, but pleasant, not sure I'd grab this is again, but it's quite refreshing and drinkable.
