Thick, rocky head of three fingers. Leaves chunky lace on the glass. Gorgeous, clear straw color.

Crisp aroma of paler malts and light hop. Smells very fresh all around. One of the best smelling blondes I've experienced.

This is what a blonde ale should taste like: Starts with dry-ish pale malt flavor which transitions into a pleasantly peppery hop. The finish has good balance. The aftertaste is bitter but doesn't last. Nice round mouthfeel.

A refreshing, tasty and fresh blonde ale. The best one so far for me.

A-Pours clear blonde with 1/2 inch of fluffy white head. Reduces quickly, leaving moderate thick lacing.

S-Bright sweet malts, a touch of graininess, pureed tropical fruit.

T/M-A very unique blonde. Really perfumey and light. Bright, refreshing carbonation and a light, fruity finish. Very simple and well done.

O-I could drink this all day.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours gold with a medium white head, good retention and lace.

S: Bready malts, some minerality which is nice.

T: Good malt flavour with a very attractive grassy hop character which suits this style well. Some lingering hop character, well balanced.

M: Light-bodied, crisp and refreshing, smooth.

O: This is a summer ale. The flavours are quite good and very drinkable. Not summer yet, but a low alcohol option to consider when the hot days come around.

12 ounce can - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Best Before: 07/28/2014

Appearance: Glugs from the can a lightly hazy, pale straw-hued body with a half-inch of white froth. Modest lacing.

Smell: A tad doughy, subtly grainy malts with a sliver of implied sweetness on the taste. Obliging citrus mixture from the hops, also subdued hints of leaf and spice.

Taste: Doughy, scantly grainy pale malts with a small pinch of table sugar. Pop of fruitiness, with a nice zesty, citrusy hop quality hinting of lime in addition to the typical lemon. Meager bit of spice. Lightly bitter. Clean, drying, crisp finish with just a bit of lingering citrus fruitiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Just a bit above medium carbonation.

Overall: A solid, refreshing ale available in a can that delivers a fair amount of flavor in contrast to its low alcohol.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A - Gross yellowish body, clear, but the white head has some good retention and lacing, especially taking style into consideration.

Smell isn't great, some wet, herbal, hay and pale malts. Taste is good though, the light body and medium carbonation lays a smooth consistency on the palate,with subtle herbal hops, some lemon citrus on a white crackery, bready malt base. Finish is crisp and clean, with slight lingering herbal hops.

O - Tough to rate, considering style. For what this beer is brewed for, it's excellent - easy drinking and sessionable while providing a complementary depth of character to keep it interesting. I could certainly drink this all day. Well done blonde ale.

Single bottle from mixed six poured into a pint glass. Classic summer beer.

Pours light gold with dissolving white foam. Wheaty citrus nose. Lemon. Smooth and sunny taste. A light tart rises up. Very slight hop at the finish. Really bright summer beer. Solid.

12oz. bottle

Pours a very pale straw color with a small white head that maintains. Decent lacing around the glass.

Very crisp malty aroma with a touch of herbal hops. Very slightly fruity. Smells very fresh and inviting.

Crisp and malty upfront leading into a mild herbal hop flavor and very mild bitterness. Finishes crisp as it stared, dry and very clean.

Light body, zippy carbonation.

An ideal summer brew. Crisp, clean, and extremely refreshing. Light in body, but not in flavor. Great for a nice session on the deck into the evening hours.

A - A bright clear blonde with a mild haze and a 1/4 inch of head that quickly reduces to a mild lace ring.

S - Smell of bright leafy hops and a mild grain profile. Citrus and lemon highlight.

T - The balance of hops to malt is great. The profile is crisp and grains and noticeable but sweet and wheat like.

M - Light and crisp. In no way watery for such a low ABV.

Overall a sure fire winner of a summer ale worth a six pack a sitting.

Pours a clear, gold color. 3/4 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight earthy malt, caramel malt, sweet malt, hint of yeast, and a hint of citrus hops. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of yeast, pale malt, hint of wheat, hint of citrus hops, slight caramel malt, and a hint of spice. Overall, good appearance, aroma, feel, blend, and body.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a standard pint glass. Review written from notes taken on June 13.

A: Crystal clear gold color. Mildly aggressive pour leads to a big thick fluffy white 2 finger head. As it fades and as I drink, there is a ton of lacing sticking to the glass. Very nice looking beer.

S: Grains bring the pain first and foremost followed by lemon zest and orange peel citrus aromas and finally a hint of hop bitter. Nice nose, not overly complex.

T: Follows the nose with the citrus and hops shining more than the grains but they blend nicely and they are all quickly identifiable.

M: Great feel - lots of carbonation in a good way. Nice bitterness at the end with the sweetness up front.

O: This is an easy drinking beer that is big on flavor and at 4% abv, I could knock back a bunch of these on a hot summer day. Wonderful beer.
