On tap at SLO Brewing Company in San Luis Obispo, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy bone colored head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, grass, and some slight honey aromas. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is drinkable and pretty refreshing.

3.28/5  rDev +0.3%

Appearance: Body is a clear, pale amber color - darker than your average blonde. Head is loose and white, but retains okay.

Smell: Crackers, honey, and maybe some clove? For a second I actually thought this was the abbey.

Taste: Cracker-like malt and honey with some citric hops in the finish. In terms of balance, malt outweighs hops by a good deal. Really flavorful for a blonde.

Mouthfeel: Creamy and a bit on the full side (for a blonde ale). Carbonation is kind of low - feels somewhat flat. Finish is far from clean/crisp, but this one is still pretty smooth.

Drinkability: This is an okay beer, but not that great for the style. Even looking back at this review, the scores seem a bit high. Oh well. Easy to drink, but boring.
