Poured from the bottle into a perfect pint.
A. Pale straw colour with an off-white head. Nice retention and sticky lace.
S. Sweet fruits and some grain. A little lemon too.
T. Taste is more full than a lot of blondes I've tried. More lemon and sweet summer fruit flavours, a malty graininess plus a peppery spice character. Maybe a hint of clove. The hops are muted, as they should be for this style, but lend an earthiness to the beer.
M. Light in the body with a prickly carbonation and a deliciously dry finish.
O. Pretty good. I don't often drink a blonde ale, it just doesn't appeal to my palate. But this one is worthwhile. Nicely done.
