look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours an effervescent & slightly hazed gold with 2 fingers of egg-shell colored head. Stellar lacing &good head retention, clears up nicely

S: Floral & hay notes, perfumy notes

T: Wet grass, floral notes, hay & crackery notes up front, some hints of elderflower, plus aspirin bitterness also. More grassiness & bitterness. Finishes with aspirin like bitterness & hay notes

MF: Light body, lively carbonation, passable balance

Fairly easy to drink, but also not very memorable. Not one I'd buy again

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Hazy straw appearance. Huge foamy six finger head even from the most gentile pour. Stick around for a while and slowly falls to a broken lace. Smells of thin grain, crackers, and faint esters. Taste like a weird version of a PBR. Grainy, with a mouth puckering middle and a slightly bitter crisp finish. Mouthfeel is tingly with a quick dry finish.

One of my first blond ales so not much to compare it to in the style. Reminds me of an adjunct lager a lot more than I had anticipated. Not what i was expecting compared to how much I love the other beers by Four Hands.
