3.71/5 rDev +6.9%
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.

Poured into a stange.
3.0 A: Lightly hazed medium yellow color. About one finger of frothy white head. Retention is below average and just a wisp of lacing is left.
4.0 S: This smells pretty damn good. Clean, grainy maltiness. Grassy hoppiness with light floral and earthy notes. Simple, yet elegant like the style is supposed to be.
4.0 T: Like the nose, simple and wonderful. Grainy malts with just enough neutral malt sweetness. Grassy hops foremost and floral and earthy undertones. Super clean.
4.5 M: Medium body, which is the perfect amount for this. Good moderate carbonation. Good creaminess and supremely smooth.
4.5 D: This beer is damn drinkable. It's tasty and refreshing. No problems at all. Simply great.
