A commercial SMaSH brew! Poured into a shaker from the bottle. Pours a fairly hazy golden straw color with thick, rocky head on top. There is tons of good lacing to the glass. The nose is nice and simple and revolves around some fresh bread, light yeast smell, and very lemony hop smell to the nose. The taste is a nice flow from the nose. There is good sweet malt up front with an oily lemon zing to it. The malt and the hops play nicely together. The mouthfeel was a little thin, but finished nice and dry overall. I think this a good beer, something I am doing in my own homebrews. I think the only detriment comes from the haziness on the appearance and the thin mouthfeel. It was a good beer and a good concept.

Bought a bottle of this from the Rogue Garage Sale at the Rogue brewpub near Portland State University.
I opted for this over two of the other BYO Rogues present at the sale because I prefer a straight ale over a rye or a black lager.
Pours a honey yellow with a good medium think white head and decent lacing.
The aroma is pleasant - nice and floral; however, the malt really comes through and colors the whole scent. The same can be said of the flavor. At first taste straight from the fridge, the malts seemed really downplayed. It came across as a nice light and floral golden ale with the Revolution hops really shining through. As the beer began to warm up, the Dare malt began to show its face; very biscuity. The after taste reminds me vaguely of a Lagunitas IPA.
This beer is super drinkable. A nice beer to have on hot summer day (like today). Not very interesting, but that's probably the idea with a SMASH like this. If I could find this for $2.00 again, I'd buy it.

I had this on draft at Mellow Mushroom while waiting patiently for the Mrs. It poured a hazy golden color, I didn't realize it was a blonde ale given then name when I ordered it, so that came as a bit of a surprise. The taste was floral almost under yeast and malts, and was actually quite nice. There was decent lacing on the glass, but not a ton of staying power. Good stuff.
