A - Poured out a clear, golden-yellow color with a one-finger, white head of bubbly foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of of caramel and floral notes.

T - It tasted of caramel, toffee and some light grassy bitterness.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a clean finish.

O - This is a nice blonde ale. Nothing too spectacular but very sessionable.

Poured a golden color to a Russian River pint glass, with a fingers width of white head, smell is mild but some danky hop resins and mild citrus. Taste is very nice for being such a mild beer, I could honestly drink this beer all day long with pleasure. Nice citrus hop is most noticeable, slightly floral, and refreshing.

Tall boy can into a Weizen glass.

A: Pours a clear golden yellow color with a one finger height of pure white foam settling on the top. It sticks around for a while and leaves nice traces of lace down the glass.

S: Grassy hops up front, but the light cracker malt body settles up in the middle. Some pale oats as well round it out. Nothing out of the ordinary here.

T: More grassy hops with a little citrus bite. Pale malts with a little bit of lagery yeast-like flavors coming through.

M: Light bodied with excellent carbonation makes for some smooth drinking. Drinkability is very high and the finish is nice and clean.

O: Very solid overall and one of the better (if not the best) blonde I've ever head. Drinking many of these on a hot day would be no problem.
