A - Deep golden color with a soapy white head. Decent lacing.
S - Fresh, citrusy hop aroma with just a touch of breadiness. I also pick up some sweet apple notes, which was unexpected.
T - Piney hops dominate up front, and as the beer coats the tongue a malty sweetness balances things nicely. The finish has a nice bitterness that prepares you well for the next sip.
M - Quite thick with mild carbonation. Heavier than I expected, but not offputting.
D - I enjoyed this one, though it's hoppier than any other blonde ale that I remember drinking. I'd probably call it a pale ale, but whatever it is, I liked it. The flavor is clean and fresh, and I could easily drink a few.
