look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cloudy golden yellow pour,half finger of bone white head,spotty lacing in the tulip.

Orange zest and a whiff of banana bread, slightly herbal/piney also. Notable difference as it warms up, as if it blossoms.

Taste pretty closely mirrors the warmed up aroma.There is a solid orange peel zing that shines and becomes brighter upon warming as well as an herbal bitterness that counters the slightly sweet malt. This is one of those beers that starts out tasting good and ends up tasting great, the bomber went down all too easy.

Mouthfeel is light medium, goodly amount of carbonation without going overboard, and a piney bitterness that rests mid palate and hangs on for a spell.

The blonde ales I've had before have been pretty boring and monotone, but that wasn't the case with Knockout Blonde. Sean Lawson has a knack for interpreting styles with a certain verve, and panache. I wish I was able to get more of these as I enjoyed it more than I expected.
