Peach Stand Rambler by Odell Brewing Co. was reviewed as a 29a Fruit Beer, per the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.

On the pour, there is a faint protein haze over a pale golden body with a persistent and sticky white head. On the nose, it's a huge hit of juicy peach, but under this is a fairly robust bready malt backbone. Not much in the way of hops here, as this is all about the fruit! At tasting, it is fairly straightforward and a bit less robust in the peach department. Very refreshing and crisp, with a good level of conditioning. Even in this blonde ale, the fruit gets lost pretty quickly. Moderately sweet and clean overall, this is a summer crusher that doesn't lose its beer character behind the fruit. Great aromatically and a really well-structured fruit beer overall. Kind of reminds me of a mix between a blonde ale and those candy peach rings!
