500 ml can, bought while on business in Stavanger, Norway. Poured into a clear plastic cup (because that's all I had).

A – The color is a deep copper, almost an amber beer, but extremely clear. Off-white head starts out 2 cm thick and fades to a thin film of bubbles with lots of lacing.

S – The aromas are very restrained. I get a bit of sweet, bready malt and some faint noble-type hops. Nothing else.

T – Not much going on here. Flavors of noble hops mix with slightly grainy malt. It could almost taste like a lager, except that there are some fruity ale yeast notes in the background. No complexity or breadth to the flavors. The finish has a metallic taste I don’t care for.

M – Body is medium to heavy. There is a sweet, mouthcoating sensation in mid-palate followed by a drier finish. Carbonation is prickly and a little harsh. Very slight hops bitterness, no alcohol burn.

O – This is an attractive beer, but the flavors and aromas don’t match the nice appearance. Overall a disappointingly bland pale ale. I don't know what the brewers intended it to be, beyond the name they chose, but I'm calling it an American Blond for review purposes.
