Thanks ChadQuest for the extra!
Appearnance: The beer looks wonderful. Sometimes light beers don't seem to have much character but this is a rich golden yellow color. It's got considerable amount of clouding and a lot of suspended sediment. The head is just gorgerous on this. 2 finger pour with the lightest fluffiest head that stuck around for a while. Even if the beer sucks I don't care this looks beautiful.
Smell: Somewhat typical grain forward "light" beer. It smells refined, but nothing out of the ordinary.
Taste: What a great blonde. It's clean and refreshing. It's has a little citrus in it. It's not bitter though, this is more like a spritz of lemon zest rather than bitting into a lemon wedge.
Mouthfeel: Light, thin, and lots of carbonation which seems to work for it. Everything to be expected done very well.
Drinkability: I'll have another please... Seriously, at 4.8% and with how light and refreshing this is, a 6er in a night wouldn't be out of the question at all. I wish I had access to this in the summer after a fun day on the river. I know it's not a favorite style because it's not huge, but this beer deserves some praise.

Full notes taken at our campground in Sioux Falls, SD. Week-long camping review dump ahead.
A- Semi hazy golden body poured from a 12oz to a goblet. White head forms to a finger with a foamy-fizzy texture and fair retention. Small ring and spotty lace result from the cap.
S- Bready yeast with some fruity esters, pale cracked grains, cereal and hops that are citrus spicy and herbal. Has a slight lemony citrus fell to me.
T- Sessionable Golden Ale feel with fair amount of hops, cereal, biscuit and light sweet grains. Floral, spicy and herbal hops with light lemon citrus in the finish.
MF- Light bodied but a creamy chewy texture especially for the style and such low ABV. Carbonation fairly high and works nicely with the flavors present and it all ends with tiny bitters.
Sessionable pale golden ale with a balance of hops and malts. Chewy mouthfeel was a nice bonus considering the style.
