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 (397 characters)

It's a very drinkable beer. A slight sweet bite at first taste with a sweet aromatic finish. I really enjoyed this beer while visiting Cali this past weekend. A big plus to find a beer that is what it is, Just a decent local beer. It not usually a fan of blonde ales but this one makes me want to try more. (306 characters)

Bottle (2012)

Clear golden with a small off-white head that leaves the glass clean on the way down.

The aroma is of simple grain and some dishrag, unfortunately. Simple, yet not particularly pleasant.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with simple grain, low bitterness, and a bit of earthy yeast character.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

Not that good, but completely expected for the given style. (414 characters)
