3.5/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out a cloudy bright yellow with a good size head that doesn't seem to last. Lots of particles or trub in this beer. Smell is mostly malty with some minor, light citrus hops coming through. I thought I got some light corn notes early but they quickly went away.

Taste is very solid. Mouthfeel is a bit heavy but balances just fine with this solid hop bitterness. Grainy, fruity with some more citrus hops coming through.

I like this beer. Yeah, it's got some minor flaws but who doesn't? I like a lot of these summer beers and this is no exception.

3.71/5  rDev +5.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: A frothy egg white head builds upon the clear goldenstraw colored liquid; excellent retention that leaves a nice pattern of lace

Smell: Not much aroma, but there is a vaguely floral, slightly grainy character

Taste: Doughy, up front, with a growing shortcake sweetness and a hint of lime in the middle; slightly vinous and grainy in the finish

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Refreshing and light with a bit more flavor than I was expecting; a nice summer quaffer

3.65/5  rDev +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.
