Mission St. Blonde Ale

I picked this up at Trader Joe's.  It says it is brewed and bottled by Steinhaus Brewing Co. of Paso Robles, California.

This 4.4% ABV beer pours dark honey golden in color.  The aroma is slightly sweet, with an orange marmalade type fruitiness.  The taste is slightly sweet, a touch of honey, but dry, like fruit jelly on a Bisquick biscuit.  There is some yeast apparent in the taste. It finishes with a dry, mellow bitterness and a pleasant aftertaste.  There is a just right sweetness in this beer.  It manages to be both sweet and dry at the same time, it is not overly sweet at all.
