Pours clear gold with a mild chill haze. Small cap of white foam fades in seconds but manages to leave behind a couple of rings of loosely formed lacing.
Cracker and biscuity malt with tight graininess and honey sweetness. Balancing noble hops provide grass, hay and a bright lemon verbena and doughy yeast to finish.
Grainy taste is very tightly crafted with largely balancing biscuits and sweet rolls with honey. Balancing noble hops are grassy, brightly herbal and finishes with a clean mineral character.
Light and sessionable body with some bright carbonation. Clean taste begets a drying finish with scrubbing mineral quality.
Pretty much as clean and well constructed as a blonde ale is going to get, the honey and biscuit malt gets to be a bit much as it warms. Clean mineral finish and light airy hops are just about perfect. Rating to style, this one gets a high grade.

A: Pours a clear, pale gold with a minimal white mousse that leaves very little lacing.
S: Malty aromas of crackers, cream, biscuits, and honey are balanced by fine herb, lemon, and straw aromas.
T: Notes of lemons, herbs, straw, grass, grain, minerals, cream, honey, crackers, and biscuits flit across the palate. The finish is very clipped and dry with mineral, honey, lemon, and cracker notes.
M: Predictably light in body with a decidedly dry character. Carbonation is crisp and firm. Super drinkable on a hot day.
O: Very solid blonde ale. If there were just a bit more complexity on the nose and in the mouth, it would be an outstanding example of the style.

An easy pour gives a finger of white head over a straw colored body. The body is murky with a little bit of solute seen floating around near the bottom.
I smell malt with a hint of grape. This transitions into a gardeny hop aroma with a hint of spice fleshing it out.
The body has a clean taste. Grainy malt mixes with a bitter gardeny hop very well. Hint of grape peel and spice completes it.
This beer is medium to light bodied. It doesn't leave any residue but is rather dry on the finish. It will dry your tongue out to a point where it almost feels as though its leaving something behind.
