pours a straw yellow, slightly hazed, lots of head.

malt, bread, biscuit, some zesty floral herbal hops.

similar to nose, very malty through out. flower and herbal flavors through out balance.

pretty light and easy, finish has this dankness that changes the way you taste it. my only beef is waaay over carbonated.

overall, an easy drinker. perfect for summer.

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

Poured from the bottle a clear gold tone with two fingers of white head.

Aroma of floral and herbal notes, light tropical fruits and grainy malts.

The tastes matches the aroma. Grainy malts upfront followed by light floral and herbs and tropical fruit notes. Finished with a salty bite.

Lighter bodied and dry with a sharp carbonation.

Overall, a bit on the bland side. I much prefer many of their other beers over this one.

Thx to macher0 for the bomber.

A: I briskly poured it and came up with about an inch of light head. It quickly dissapated and left some decent lacing. Very carbonated.

S: Definitely floral notes right off the bat, but some pungent funkiness, too. Grassy.

T: Crisp and clean tasting. Perfect summer beer. A bit floral for my tastes, but I get what they are going for. Grassy and wheat flavored, but a nice little peppery kick at the end.

M: Pretty slick.

O: A good representation of what they were trying to achieve - a sessionable summertime ale. Nothing groundbreaking. Almost a pilsner, noble-like quality to it. Light and refreshing. And, I'm sure I probably won't ever buy one again. But, I think they did an admirable job anyway.

Pours a hazy, gold color. 1/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, slight yeast, and a hint of hop. Fits the style of an American Blond Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of yeast, hint of hops, and a hint of floral. Overall, good appearance, feel, body, and blend.

Served this American Blonde Ale , on tap at the brewery in a pint glass. This ale poured a hazy yellow color, produced a thin white head, below average retention and it left some lacing on the glass. The aroma consisted of cereal grains, grass and caramel. Light in body, this ale consisted of sweet toasted grain, and a noticeable piney hop finish. As far as blonde ale's go, this one was well made, and flavorful. Much better then an AB produced Blonde ale that I recently tried. Safe entry level craft beer. Glad I sampled this one. Prost!

On tap at Flamingo Bowl in downtown St. Louis.

A - Poured a hazy, golden yellow color with a small, white head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy rings of lace.

S - It smelled floral and of fresh cut grass. Some caramel notes, too.

T - It had a nice caramel sweetness with a nice spicy hop bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale.

O - This is a nice sessionable brew. Glad I found it.
