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.

Up from Jacksonville FL and stopped in at the brewery.

A: Single finger head with little lacing on a clear right golden body.

S: Wheat, hint of floral hops and musty grain.

T: nice full grained flavor which isn't too sour and finishes a little tart and peppery. Has a bit of a noble and floral hop character.

M: medium body and moderate to high carbonation.

Overall: nice drinkable beer. The flavor is rich and full and mildly complex. A nice everyday beer.

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.

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.
