    This was my dinner beer, once I made it back home. A cloudy yellow colore with a medium sized frothy textured, white head rising above. There’s some hang time on this one. Settles into a thick ringlet atop the body and splotches of film aside the glass. Nose is light caramel and melon fruit. The taste some of the same with some light spiciness. This one is not overwhelming, not a beer in your face and that in itself is it’s charm. It is a light high carbonated crispness. Overall, not bad.

    Very light with grassy, cornlike grainy notes - not unlike many mass-produced macro-brews readily available. This was no standout at all - marginal in fact. Could be a good yardworking beer, but I'd opt for a PBR over this one.

    Brought back from Georgia by my friend Jennifer. Pours a crystal clear golden with a nice semi frothy white head. Aroma is a little bit on the corn side with plenty of wheat and malt in the backbone. Light faint hops, slight grassiness and herbal notes.

    A beer of the month offering for June/July 2010. Pours a nice clear light yellow. Typical lager white head. Flavor is pleasant light malt with decent carbonation to match. Flavor is pretty good for a basic lager style. refreshing, good quick slamdown thirst quencher.

    Tasted during the Nor Cal Beer Geek Tasting on 3/11/2009. This blond ale pours a light yellow gold color forma 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal, fruity and sweet, touch of diacetyl. A light bodied blonde ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are slightly spicy. Kinda thin and mild tasting, add to that some strong butterscotch diacetyl flavors and this beer is really a mess. Lively carbonation. Sorry but I will pass on this one. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

    I have bought several six packs of this and enjoy it quite a lot. Pours pale gold/straw in color with a large head. The aroma is crisp and clean smelling with a fresh hop nose of hay/straw. This looked like a "weak" beer at first, but I was pleasantly surprise with the taste. It is clean and refreshing while not sacrificing complexity. There is a nice malt backbone with an assertive hoppiness and dry finish. This is the definition of a session beer in my opinion. I don't detect any "sweaty socks" some other reviewers have complained about.

    The best thing about this beer is the description or tag line, if you will, "with a blonde in hand its always happy hour." rofl. ok no seriously ,the beer. i would describe this as a dirty blonde if it is a blonde. maybe a brunette who dyes her hair blonde. either way, its a dirty pale yellow color. i totally understand shag’s sweaty sock comment after having this one though. the aroma and the flavor bring this out. aroma also has some light floral and pineapple/banana flavors, and the flavor is grainy with some alfalfa or some raw soy bean flavor (if you take em from the field and chew em). not so good.

    This actually isn’t a bad beer. Of course it’s never going to rate highly here. Light-bodied, light-colored beers don’t stand a chance around here. But it is really pretty good for what it is. The appearance really isn’t very promising. The pale gold body really would make it hard to differentiate this from a macro lager. The aroma also plays some tricks on the mind. If you gave this to me in a blind taste test I never would have guessed it was a blonde ale like the label claims. I would have pegged it as a really fresh sample of some Bohemian pilsner or one of the better, but less aggressive American takes on the style. The hops aren’t huge in this, but do stand up beneath the firm, dry straw/hay maltiness. Another example of ABC becoming a much better brewery than it once was and becoming a source of some solid session beers.

    Ah the sweaty socks are back. Ehhh. A blonde appearance with a large head. A bit of lemons and corn show in the flavor. The aroma is unpleasent and funky. A sour and bitter aftertaste which doesnt work in this style. I'm not a fan of this beer.

    The aroma is of sweet malt with some grain as well as hay and straw or grass. The appearance is a nice darker, pale yellow with a thin head on top that diminishes leaving a bleach white, bubbly lacing on top that coats the glass well. The mouthfeel is light-bodied with decent malty complexity as well as decent balance with a pallet that is crisp but a bit thin and watery. The flavor is of some citrus lemon with some malts with some grain and hay characteristics with an aftertaste that is sweet and malty and crisp and refreshing with a finish that is smooth and wet but a bit watery as well as club soda or dishwater-like but not too bad. Overall, this is a good Summer beer to drink and is crisp and refreshing as well as smooth with some funky overtones that I can't quite place. This is a good brew and not too bad and is pretty pleasant to drink. This must be brand new from ABC because it is not yet on their website, this is a pretty good beer with high drinkability and I would recommend it.
