Canned on 11/26/2014. Sampled and reviewed on February 15, 2015.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a shaker. Pours a light golden/orange color with lots of carbonation. About 1 finger width of head. Smells of grass, grain, wheat, slight hint of wood or dirt. Upon tasting, a slight presence of both hops and malt. Taste is grassy, but quite rich and sweet. Light on the palate. Easy drinking, for sure. Has somewhat of a dry finish and a sweet aftertaste.

Overall, this is a good effort by the Boys. I honestly think this one tastes better straight from the can, but maybe that's just because I've been drinking it that way for some time now. This was the first time I've put it in a glass, and I don't think I'll be doing it again. This beer is nothing fancy, but doesn't claim to be. A good beer for working around your garage or fishing the Ohio.

A- pours a pale and clear yellow-straw color with a small creamy white head that reduces to a film floating on top, some lace left behind

S- toasted grain and crackers, trace of floral hop

T- light toasted grain with just a trace of floral and citrus hop, dry finish with a hint of malty sweetness

M- light-medium body with medium biting carbonation leads to a dry and crisp finish

O- easy drinking and approachable, good if you're in a light beer mood

Received as an extra in a trade. Not a huge fan of the style, it was refreshing but exceedingly average.

Appearance: Cloudy opaque golden, with substantial lace from the can. Big, loopy lace.

Aroma: Fresh floral hops up front, which is not what I expected. A little hint of caramel malts underneath. Enticing.

Taste: Rich and malty, with light toasty grains and bright citrusy hops duking it out. This is a superb and balanced blonde ale with nuance and complexity. Very well done.
