A - A bight lively golden color. Light head even in a tulip glass with a proper pour.
S - There's no suggested serving temp obviously displayed on the bottle but this guy definitely needs to warm up a bit once out of the fridge. There's not a lot of aromatic character until it's had some time to open up. Once it does the main smell is like a toasted earthy loaf of bread. Smells basically like the first half of a brewery tour.
T - As expected, the hops take a back seat to the malts here. The intial flavor of the beer (where I always feel like the hops hit hardest) is somewhat absent but it makes up for it on the backend with the malts. As much aftertaste as actual taste but it's a good aftertaste so I'm not complaining.
M - Much lighter and crisper than expected, a pleasant surprise.
D - A totally drinkable beer (if you neglect the price) that I'd quickly recommend to any hop-hating friends. They do exist, unfortunately. *sigh*

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.
