12 oz bottle

Near clear, near golden, slight off white head.

Minor malt nose.

Malty with some crisp fruit up front. Then some pepper, lime and dry hops.

Dry summery brew. Nothing special but a decent quaffer and likely would be a workable accompaniment to a warm summer day.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a huge airy white head. Quite merangue like. It slowly settles into a fluffy cap, tons of webby lacing on the glass.

The aroma has a light lemony and metallic twang. A bit musty. Grassy hop.

The beer had a bright citrus flavor, mainly grapefruit, perhaps some orange. Subtle salt note. The combination of the two give the beer a Belgian pale ale flavor as it mimics the clovey yeast. The malt is dry and cracker like. A grassy hop note provides some bitterness in the end.

The feel is light and bright. Fizzy carbonation helps with the drinkability. Slight bitterness on the palate.

A very freshing beer. Enjoyable flavors. I could drink a bunch of these.

Served on tap at the new Little Pub in Wilton CT. Pint glass.

Sea salt ale. Pours bright gold with thick head of white foam. Sticks. Light malty smell. Little floral. Flowery water taste that hits a hop and closes like salt water. Interesting. Light summer beer, quite tasty. Very good. 35 35 40 375 375

A: crystal clear light gold beer, in a tulip glass, about a finger of white foam, just a few flecks of lace; bubbles gliding up through the body

S: pale malt freshness and floral and herbal hop aromas

T: pilsener-like malt flavors, delicate and fresh and clean-tasting, overlaid by a more American hop profile, more toward the citric end of the spectrum - moderate bitterness - and yes, there is a slight hint of salt to the beer

M: light and crisp and refreshing, clean-finishing

O: not too familiar with the style - but the bottle refers to the beer as a blonde ale - no abv indicated on the bottle either, but I'm assuming it's in the 5% area - a great summer beer, very drinkable and refreshing, crisp and slightly saline

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a light brassy hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured grassy hops and a soft pale malt.

The taste consisted of a vibrant herbal hop spice atop a thin grainy malt. A slight salty tang noticed at the finish.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a dry finish.

Overall a good standard ale.
