on tap at TPC Scottsdale, Arizona (from notes)
A - clear bronze with a finger of head, pretty respectable lacing
S - leafy with some pine, toffee, gentle citrus zest
T - much like the nose with a solid balance of bitter-sweet
M - medium to light body, sweet with a mild bitter finish
O - a great treat after a day of golfing in the searing desert heat, i would call this more of a Pale than a blonde ale
