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

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.
