a generic blonde that tastes pretty good on the whole, and satisfies just fine when youve already been drinking all day, but probably cant hold its own against even the upper middle class of craft brewed blonde ales. its thicker, heavier, but that has its merit too. i like its uplifted carbonation and its thin sweetness. medium tinny middle though, and an old semi-stale hop complexion thats underdone and missing something. still, its refreshing in the right context, not as good as others from these guys, but a decent brew. i always find it a little weird when a brewery can rock out a barrel aged imperial brew, but cant dial in a real basic thing like this one, it almost seems lazy or complacent rather than incompetent, and maybe thats a greater offense...

Fruity malty nose, some spice, orange
Hazy gold, 2” off white head dissipates to a film
Palate: a mixed bag blend of Kolsch and Belgian Wit that gets confusing. Has the orange and coriander but not the yeast character of the Wit, has a hint of Kolsch yeast, and enough wheat to evoke an American wheat ale but the result does too little with too much.
Medium to a little above on the carbonation, medium body.
