3.2/5  rDev -14.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Pours an amber tinged straw color from the tallboy can. A small head forms but quickly fades to nothing. A spotty amount of lacing as it goes down. Smell is mostly bready malt with a light vegetable odor underneath. No hint of any hops. Flavor is pretty boring. There is some toasted, bready malt, that's about it. Thankfully the veggies don't come through in the flavor. Carbonation is fairly high, but that works for the style. Quite drinkable, albeit boring.

Judging by other reviews I'd say I got an old can, but with no dating I can't be sure.

Serving type: can

4.53/5  rDev +20.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Had this in a can before and wasn't all too impressed. On draft, however, it is damn near sublime.

Rich pils and medium strength American hops blend into a lightly bitter, lightly verdant, very grassy aroma.

Tastes it smells, only with some softer fruit nodes tossed in for variation. Grass, dandelions, strawberries, light spicy hops at the end and then a pronounced ale yeast finish of more spice. Starts out grassy, sweet, and wet, ends dry as a Brut champagne.

One of the very best American blondes I have ever had.

Serving type: on-tap
