Copper colored with a fingernail of off white. I smell light grains and a suggestion of grassy hops. I taste light,crackery malt and a light dose of grassy hops. The mouth is light and crisp.

I consider this a solid blonde ale. Nothing to write home about, just a steady ale that doesn't offend. Not too sweet IMO.

A nice blonde beer pours a slightly hazy golden color with little to no head. A nice but weak beer smell with a really good flavor. A little more carbonated than I prefer but I could definitely drink it all night.

I don't like this beer at all, it had a smoky/sulphury flavor that was not great.

too many other good blondes out there from texas (southern star and deep ellum are both better).
