3.53/5 rDev +6.6%
Pours a beautiful golden blonde with a huge, frothy white head. True to the description.
Sweet with a touch of pine hops in the nose. Grainy texture as well. I don't see anything that shouldn't be.
Chewy, sweet, buttery malt with just that kiss of pine I mentioned. It's reminiscent of a basic pale ale.
Lingering bitterness and graininess of the malt at the back. Not as pleasant as I had hoped but it does give it a bit more flavor.
Not bad. I probably wouldn't buy it again and I think they would have better off making a kolsch if they were looking for something sessionable.

LOOK: Pours a hazed golden color, with a bone white tightly beaded head that leaves good lacing behind.
SMELL: Bready malts and crackery yeast. Some lemon and floral hop notes. Pinch of wheat.
TASTE: Mild tea like hops, creamed malt, wheat. Perfumeish hops translate to a flavor of edible flowers. Biscuit, bread, mild tangy green apple fruitiness in the finish. So lemony and tea like its vaguely reminiscent of a bitter shandy. Pretty mellow and easy drinking.
FEEL: Thin feel, carbonation is low but has a small zing to it. Quite watery and loose in the finish, which is disappointing.
OVERALL: There are some things to like about this beer, it looks good and tastes good, but it really lacks depth and body.

A: Nice short white colored head poured from a can in to a pint glass. Excellent lacing. A bit cloudy with a nice golden color.
S: Nice aroma with some hops and sweetness
T: The hops are not too strong and are even throughout.
M: A good amount of carbonation but maybe not quite enough
O: This beer is pretty good with an even hops profile throughout the swallow. I look forward to trying other varieties from Finch's.

Snagged a single pounder from the house of 1,000 beers for $1.75
A - Boy this is one dirty blonde! Hazy and bright yellow with a 1/4 inch of head that settles to a lace ring of almost nothing.
S - Some piney hops, touch of mild grains, some wheat, and a bit of lemon peel.
T - Pretty tasty summer brew. They didn't scrimp on the hops which is nice. Grains are mild and balanced with some wheat base and a touch of lemon peel in the finish.
M - Light and crisp yet more body than I expected. Decent.
Overall even a simple blonde these guys craft well. I have not found a single Finch beer I have been disappointed with. Worth a try.

160z can into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium gold with a half finger white head. Head quickly fades to just a thin lace leaving decent lacing on the sides of the glass as the beer is drunk.
Aroma is quite yeasty with Some toasted malt and lemony notes. A little bit of grass as well.
The flavor expands on the characteristics found in the aroma with more toasted malt along with grass and hay. There are some lemon and peach notes along with a little bit of butterscotch. Bitterness is moderate with a fairly dry mouthfeel throughout. Nice crisp finish.
Overall, there is not a lot to this beer but that is typical for the style. This is a great summer brew and a perfect thirst quencher on a hot day. More flavor than bmc and overall, a pleasure to drink.
