Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served a hazy orange amber color with a small head of white foam floating atop the brew. The head fades rather fast leaving a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is heaviest of some honey and a bit of a grainy smell. Along with these smells are some caramel and citrusy aromas of grapefruit and some orange. Overall very mild and light.
Taste – The taste of the beer begins with a rather crisp and smooth bready taste with hints of a caramel and honey sweetness and a lighter hop flavor of a grapefruit nature. The grapefruit grows stronger as the flavor moves onto the end becoming the predominant hop flavor of the brew. The grapefruit never gets too overpowering however, always staying in pace with the malty flavors of the brew. The malty flavors upfront are of a more bready flavor transition to a more grainy like flavor with a bit of a hay-like flavor more toward the end of the taste. With a little bit of a grassy and herbal flavor also joining the taste at the end, one is left with a crisp but somewhat citrusy and grainy flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness, creaminess, and carbonation for a brew of 5.2 % abv. It balances the citrus and grainy flavors of beer nicely and makes for a rather refreshing brew overall.
Overall - A rather refreshing beer for the most part. I am glad however that I tried it on tap as I paid $ 5.00 for a pint, where if getting a bottle I would have been rather disappointed at spending ~ $12 for a “lighter” beer of its nature. Refreshing and nice but not worth the big price tag for a bottle. Try it on tap if you get the chance.

750ml bottle at 41 F poured into a pair of chalices. No date or bottle codes that I can find.
Pours slightly cloudy, ambery/orange, smallish head, some fine carbonation. Smell is mild, very little to say about it.
Taste is pretty mild, but it's a blonde I suppose. I think it's richer and more interesting than most blondes I've tried. Somewhat bready, slightly citrus.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, not sticky. Overall, not bad.
