3.98/5  rDev +21.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A - Pours a slightly hazy yet bright orange amber with a thin, quick dissipating head that does leave some loose webs of lacing.

S - Slightly winey and spicy on the nose, with a touch of white grape sweetness and bready malt.

T - Very bready and a tad spicy, with subtle malt sweetness and minimal hop bitterness.

M - Light yet not watery, with active, foamy carbonation. Adds to it's smoothness.

D - Definitely in the session beer range with it's 5% ABV and far from overpowering flavor.

Overall - A refreshing, simple blond ale from those nutty brewers in Vermont. Yummy.

*Based off week old memories*

A: Head and lacing are great. Retention is also good. Very clear golden color.

S: A bit of cereal grain. Very generic beer smelling. By that I mean its the smell that everyone recognizes as beer, nothing really obtrusive or intriguing.

T: Decent. A bit of cereal grain and just the very lightest tinge of hops. Maybe just a little bit of a pear like or appleish ester profile but its very minimal. Nothing standing out really but that's okay for the style.

M: Moderate to light body with maybe just a bit lower carbonation.

O: Very drinkable and refreshing but not a life changer or anything too interesting. A good example of a blonde ale however. Easy drinking patio beer but that's just fine.
