Pale in color, somewhere between white gold and yellow gold, there's definitely no doubting this beer's "blondeness." The moderately sized, bubbly head on it is pure white. Retention is good, and spotty lacing is left in moderation.
This is a unique beer, certainly within parameters of what's become something of a catch-all for a light ale not brewed with wheat. It has some interesting characteristics to it, though. Nicely hoppy for a little blonde with an ample malt balance, the way they come together isn't typical. Grassy and citrusy with some herbal notes, it's also got some pithy rind, and it balances an interestingly doughy sort of malt. The smell brings out something like cookie (?), while in the flavor there's more of a flash of nuttiness before a more fruit-forward finish.
Barely medium in body, it's got more heft than many blondes. It's also got a hard bite of crispness all the way through without giving up smoothness. A gently herbal edge gives a little dryness going into the finish.

3.65/5  rDev +3.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a hazy and very pale yellow with a fat creamy head of white foam that lasts and leaves great lace. Nose is malty with only a touch of sweetness on it. No fruity esters, no hops to speak of on the nose really. A faint little floral does creep into the background. As it warms a touch of sweet grass also makes it's way into the nose. That floral is very uplifting in the nose. It's not a loud nose so you have to get right down in the glass.

Taste is excellent. Favors the malt and the hops are restrained. They offer balance, beauty and not too much bitterness to the drink. The herbal and the malt come together softly and sweetly in the dry finish. It's smooth and very easy to drink.

I think it's excellent and with an abv of only 4% this is a tasty little summer beer. Blonde ales are cousins to kolsch and this one sure reminds you of that. I would say that it's only flaw is that the bitterness becomes a bit much as it lingers.

Like the Wyld, this is another extremely pale beer, with excellent head retention and nice lacing. The nose, though, is extremely faint, just some distant hops. The flavor leans toward the sweet side, with a clean, though slightly grainy, malt profile. Some bitterness comes through at the end, drying things a little, but not much hop flavor exists.

Rather bland and uninteresting.
