Pours a clear golden with a delicate white head that leaves nice lacing. The aroma has some piney and minty hops upfront, along with some biscuit, honey, esters and alcohol...pleasing though lacking complexity. The flavor also has juicy hop notes initially (piney, citrusy, minty), along with biscuit, caramel and honey, fruity esters, minerals, and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is smooth and light, and drinkability is very good. This is easily the best blonde ale I've had, but really should be considered a pale ale or IPA and against stiffer competition it wouldn't fare so well.
