A light, straw-colored ale. A fresh, clean aroma with very subtle hops. Crisp in the taste with a slight fruitiness. Finished dry and refreshing.

When poured this beer his a bright white head to it. Very small head. Aroma is malty with little to no hop aroma. Appearance is cloudy seems to be a bit of a chill haze.( I am use to Blonde ales being crystal clear). Very similar to a bud light or coors light. Not really impressed.

There was nothing that separated this from the cheap beer that it emulates. It wasn't terrible. It just wasn't worth paying craft beer prices for it.

A very good blonde. Really nothing special about it but compared to most and to mainstream brew this is above average. Pours a cloudy gold with white head. Smells of wheat or slight grass. Same comes through in taste but finishes clean. This is a great "go to" brew.

I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi - hazy yellow color with streams of carbonation seen rising to feed a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light stringy lacing here and there.
The smell had a light sweet corn.
The taste was mainly just the sweet corn.
The mouthfeel was soft and light all around.
Overall, average blonde ale but fairly decent to have on a hot summer day.

Poured into a New Belgium tulip glass:

A - Little less then a finger of head with a hard pour that then fades. Light coating on top of the liquid. Some steady carbonation rising from the center. Light orange in color. Noticed this is a bit unfiltered with some suspended specks floating in the beer.

S - Slightly fruity in nature.

T - Mild taste with almost no hop bitterness. A touch of citrus. Finishes dry with no aftertaste.

M - Light feel with almost no noticeable carbonation in my mouth. Very smooth.

O - If handed a pint without know what it was and just tasted it, it would taste similar to some mainstream lagers at first. But where they would leave a aftertaste, this finishes clean. It's mild sweetness comes off more citrus then corn. Not a style I look for but it would have been a good beer to have on a warm day on a patio.
