look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A. Pours a very pale clear yellow with a billowing white foamy head that dissipates slowly leaving huge islands of residual lacing.

S. European hops with some sage and rosemary.

T. Bready/biscuit malt flavors with some herbal spiciness. Interesting, but subtle.

M. Thin body with a brisk biting carbonation.

D. A good BBQ beer.

A - Poured out a clear, fizzy, golden-yellow color with a foamy, white, three-finger head that left minimal lace.

S - It smelle of caramel, grains and grasses.

T - It tasted of sweet caramel and a touch of bitter grassiness.

M - It was crisp and sharp with a smooth feel. A light bodied ale.

D - This is a good ale. A nice sessionable summer brew.

This beer is simply put, an enjoyable summer beer. Crisp, clean, and definitely refreshing.

The appearance is pale golden, and perfectly clear.

The nose on this beer is definitely loaded with very lightly toasted malts. I picked up just a hint of hoppy flower. But definitely very light on nearly everything.

The mouthfeel is light, sharp, and crisp. It feels like little bubbles in the mouth, perhaps adding to the very refreshing quality of this beer.

Overall, I would buy this reasonably priced 6-pack again to support the brewery. The product is nothing exceptional, but it is a very serviceable, and certainly not unpleasant, warm weather, refreshing beer.

Picked this up on my way back from Cape Cod.

Look: Golden (duh), pale body. Fluffy two finger head that has amazing retention and generous lacing.

Smell: Clove and banana. Big yeasty aroma. Reminds me of a nice belgian strong ale.

Taste: Bready, light, crisp. Pale malts, mild bitterness.

Mouth/Drink: This one goes down easy and drinks nicely.

Good drinkability though a malt story. Deep golden body with foaming offwhite head. The aromas are a little distracting. Good malts,remind me of European, with a mild hop finish, nicely carbonated. Refreshing on the first warm day of spring.
Thanks Dr.Jay.

Had on tap at the Moan and Dove. The drink settled with a murky, pale gold appearance with some good lacing. The aromas were predominately hoppy with some bready florals as well. The taste was generally bittersweet with that doughy floral flavoring prevalent again. Decent carbonation made the drink enjoyable throughout the evening. Overall, a good blonde.

Thanks goes out to jwc215 for this one.

Pours a nice slight haze golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice little fizzy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, with some yeast, and spices. The taste is sweet, malty, slight yeast, and some spices thrown in. Medium body. Drinkable, this is not a bad brew, tasty.
