Received as an extra.

Poured into a pint glass, the body is a clear golden color with crystal clarity. The head is off-white, peachy colored, and clings to the sides of the glass leaving a consistent lacing pattern. The soapy subs die in a slow fashion and hang around for most of the pint. Decent amount of carbonation present.

The aroma is immediately reminiscent of German/Czech lagers to me. The Saaz hops are the most prominent and up front. Then as the beer warms slightly, the fruitiness of the malts shine through very easily. There is a sweetness to the aroma, mostly from this honeyish malty scent, but also there might be some trace diacetyl, which isn't totally uncalled for in this style. Pleasant, but nothing special.

Very flavorful! Rich, honey malts take over from here. There is a respectable hop bite up front, and maybe a slight lingering bitterness in the finish, but it really does just act in a balancing role. Those sweet malts take center stage and carry with them hints of yellow apples, golden raisins, and honey. Grassy hops linger...

Excellent texture on the beer, with a good amount of carbonation that is neither too effervescent nor is it too creamy. It has a softer texture though, and the body is very full for the style.

This is a great, standout example of a Blonde Ale. Very enjoyable, full of character, and stands head and shoulders above some other weak examples out there. Really liked this. It could use more hops in my opinion, but then again, why mess with a good thing?

Lots of notes of passionfruit and citrus. Slightly sour but very refreshing. As an IPA guy I can appreciate it for what it is. I'm having some of my sister's after coming in from the beach and it's really refreshing. I don't love it but she really does and she likes the wheat beers. She says I'm low-balling the rating. Meh, she'll have to rate it herself.

Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with about a half inch of white head that quickly reduces down to some nice lacing on the top and sides.

Malt, yeast, grass, and lemon. Has a bit of an outdoors character to it.

Starts out a bit fruity, more on the citrus side, orange and lemon notes. Also maybe a hint of pine and grass from the hops, leaving a bit of a floral aftertaste.

Not too bad on the feel, a little watery, carbonation gives it some tingle.

I'd rate this a better than average example of the style. So many pale ales I have tried just are lacking in flavor, this one has flavor, and a bit of a unique character. It is a bit on the sweet side, which is fine by me. If you're looking for an easy to drink beer that doesn't taste like beer flavored water, give this one a try, would be nice on a hot day.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance is a light golden color with white head.

Smell is light malts

Taste was pretty disappointing...wasn't a terrible tasting brew but there's not much to it. Light roasted watery malts and a bit of caramel. It was ok.

Mouthfeel was watery and pretty thin.

Overall, disappointing but not terrible I guess. If offered to me I would probably drink it but I wouldn't personally buy this again.
