3.79/5 rDev +9.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Appearance- Golden amber in color and slightly hazy. Thin fizzy head produced and no lacing present.
Aroma- Bready malt most present with some small hop aromas as well.
Taste- First sip reveals some nice citrus hop flavor, which then subsides into a bready malt on the back end.
Mouthfeel- Clean and crisp. Medium bodied and slightly creamy feel on the tongue.
Overall- I like this alot and if I had more access to it I would put this in the rotation for summer and probably all year. Plenty of flavor and extremely drinkable, I would definitely recommend this one.

Poured from a can into a point glass.
Nice deep yellow, crystal clear. Decent amount of head, and it lasts a good long while, too. No pun intended, based on their, ahem, "controversial" slogan, either.
Smells earthy, a bit dusty from the hops. Slight grain sweetness, but mostly just the "dirt" hop aromas, which are quite nice.
Taste is mild, as one would expect from a blonde. Not bitter, with a hop presence mostly in the flavor rather than from bitterness. Slight almost citrus flavor peeks in, then goes away just as quickly. You're left with an earthy aftertaste, again mimicking the aroma, with the dusty flavor and just a hint of malt sweetness.
Mouthfeel is quite light, as it should be. No complaints there.
The can is correct; this goes down easy. While it's difficult to drink while laughing at the overwrought hand wringing over the slogan without shooting beer out your nose, it can be done. And this is worth chasing down. It's nothing amazing, and won't change your life in any meaningful way, but it is a solid blonde ale, perfect for nights on the deck of afternoons by the grill, when you just want a beer without having to think hard about it.
