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. (278 characters)

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. (702 characters)

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 (304 characters)

Very solid, easy drinkin' pale ale from NY. Citrusy, and you can taste the salty undercurrent. (95 characters)

- brewed with Atlantic sea salt. Bot. 2/27/14. consumed 12.01.14 in duvel tulip.

(3.45) A: Dense tangerine orange with a slow rising effervesce. Milky-bread white colored one inch head, with a strong rate of retention. Leaves with a thick, milky lace band.

(3.15) S: The aroma was soft of salted sliced lemons with a small tartness. Reserved.

(3.35) T: Flavor was salty of sliced lemons, wheat and grapefruit peel. Hint of straw, dry orange peels with some grassiness of hops and pepper spicing.

(3.35) M: Light frothy mouthful, tart, and dry, with a bitterness of tart salted orange on the tongue.

(3.35) O: Overall the beer lived up to its name, it did have a noticeable amount of sea salt and didn't hold back, so it just wasn't a gimmicky marketing strategy. It tends to drink like a wit from a salted margarita glass or a salty blonde. An interesting try, just not one to be consumed in multiples and had very little supporting cast of flavors to make this interesting or hold ones attention beyond the salt factor. Ok. (1,034 characters)

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 (729 characters)

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. (410 characters)

Received 3 bottles in a gifted beer of the month club. Poured into Pilsner glass.
A= Golden, orange tint, clear. Thick white head.
S= Lite aroma, bit of lemony citrus and bready/toasty malt.
T= Salt lingers in the aftertaste, nice level of saltiness. Malt, toast, and straw flavors linger, has a bit of pepper too.
M=Dry and crisp. Flavors hit the tongue but do not linger
O= I would drink this beer again, it was easy to drink and had a nice toasty malt character. The salt was there, not overpowering. Kept its nice thick head throughout. Good for warm weather, summer nights. (585 characters)

I think that I managed to taste the sea salt on this one...I think. Overall, this was your average blonde. Nothing particularly impressive to write home about, a little sweet, salty, and biscuity with some dry-hop bitterness. (225 characters)
