3.86/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

bottled about 4 mos. ago. poured into a globe glass.

Clear light amber color with lots of carbonation and a quickly gone white head. good lace.

smell is fresh grass and faint sweet fruit

taste is hops followed by a refreshing sweetness of honey. smooth and easy to drink.

mouth feel is sharp at first, then light and watery. not much to it

overall, decent session beer, but not extraordinary

3.5/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on 03/24/14.

Pours translucent dark gold with a thin white head that quickly disappears completely and leaves faint spots of lace.

The smell is of sweet grainy bread, like a King's Hawaiian dinner roll.

The flavor is of bread, grains and malt with very little hop presence and a faint caramel and honey sweetness.

The texture is medium bodied with high carbonation. A steady stream of tiny bubbles rise to the top throughout the drink down.

This is a decent blonde ale that has bready malt qualities and a slightly sweet finish. Smooth, light and sessionable.

2.39/5  rDev -28.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

A: nothing to complain
S: bready, light
T: sweet, bready, little bit of bitterness on the end. Kinda disappointing
M: super fizzy, didn't care for it

Overall, tasted more like a lager than an ale. Seemed to be very carbonated, which wasn't something I liked on it. Probably won't purchase again.

Edit: had another one of these, disliked even more. It's just not a good beer.
