look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a nonic pint glass.

A: fluffy white head, hazy pale dark yellow with blonde highlights, creamy white lace on glass, creamy 2 finger head, excellent retention.

S:lemon zest, doughy, grainy malt, crackers, grass, and nothing else. Not much going on.

T: Decent. Lemon peel, zesty hops, some grass, some sunshine, light citrus, sweet malt, sweet fruit, day-old dry white bread; the aftertaste was so dry it left me with cottonmouth.

M: crisp, refreshing, light body, wet, creamy because of the fluffy cream head.

A good brew to drink in the summer as I look forward to its release every May; it isn't the best blonde ale, but it sure is refreshing when it's 100 degrees in the Salt Lake high desert sun! A solid summer seasonal by Uinta brewing.

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
