This is a decent beer, a simple bland ale that is rather like a basic, but decent, pale lager.

Dark gold, it has a medium white head soon thinning to foamy ring.

Aroma is nice grain, hay, hint of honeyed bread, overripe apples. It's fairly simple but good.

Taste is not as good, being lightly sweet faint grain, faint grassy-peppery bitterness, faint honey with biscuit finish. It ends up rather simple and rough.

A: Clear and pale orange in color with a medium sized off white head. Darker than I'd expect for a Blonde...

S: Aromas of sweet malt, white bread dough, some spice, apples and peaches. Straight forward, simple, and to the point. Nicely balanced.

T: Flavors are very similar. Fruity and brightly hopped with sweet doughy malts. Some tart lemon in the mix.

M: Slick, well carbonated, and dry through the finish. Light body.

O: This appears to be solid across the board. A decent, fairly simple, refreshing summer beer.

pours a clear yellow/light amber tone with a finger of off-white foamy head that soon dissipates into a thin collar around the glass; spotty lacing.

nose is pretty tame... i get subdued notes of breadiness and floral hops. flavor opens with a bready/biscuity presence which is followed by some mild hop characters... clean, crisp finish. again, fairly muted all around; by and large an unexiting, inoffensive beer.

light/medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. 'average' i think suits this entry across the board; the sort of light, easy drinking beer one might be inclined to session at the beach. even at that, i think i'd be inclined to look elsewhere.

Bottle served into a Port Brewing sampler glass at me friend's house in Orange, California. Reviewed live. Acquired at Trader Joe's for 50 cents.

A: Pours a half finger head of white colour, decent cream, fair thickness, and awful retention. Colour is a clear blonde.

Sm: Clean barley and malts. A moderate strength aroma. Bland and simple.

T: Hints of honey. Clean barley and malts. Straw. Very bland and boring. Not really balanced. Built blandly. Not full bodied.

Mf: Smooth and wet. A bit thin. A bit watery. Adequately carbonated. Complements the flavour decently.

Dr: Very drinkable, but rather boring and bland. I'd prefer more of the honey flavour. It's okay. I wouldn't get it again. A great budget beer if you're shopping at Trader Joe's.
