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.
