Poured from a bottle into a room-temperature stein. Made the mistake of reading other reviews of this beer before drinking it (many were negative reviews). Beer is fresh - "enjoy by Feb 2013."
Appearance - Light/medium amber color; transparent; initially about a 1/2 finger white head but it dissipated quickly.
Smell - Very difficult to discern a smell. After agitating I can pickup a slight smell of yeast and malt....perhaps a slight berry-like smell.
Taste - Underwhelming initially. Bread, toasted grains flavor...remains throughout.
Mouthfeel - Easy on the palate; light-bodied; medium carbonation.
Overall - Not my favorite Boulder Beer but okay for a light-bodied, American Blonde Ale. It grew on me as I made my way through it and I would drink this again if I was looking for a light, refreshing beer.

this one is a bit of a bore for me, and truly one of the lightest beers ever, that can still be considered a craft product. it pours a clear bright yellow color, lots of bubbles, but not a ton of head. the nose features some lighter pilsener malts and a generic ale yeast. a little citrus in the flavor, but not much hop at all. it goes down super easy, and is a fine hot weather beer, but it can hardly hold my attention through a single bottle. the feel is also not quite right for a light beer like this. its simple enough, but id like even a little more carbonation, or at least better carbonation retention, and I need just a bit more meat on the bones in terms of body. personal preference though. my dad found this to be delightful on his visit to Colorado, and has encouraged my to bring him a case back east when I go. to me though, this just wasn't interesting enough, which has been true with several boulder beers lately.
