12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 4/11/2014. Pours moderately hazy/cloudy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, biscuit, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish as expected of 4.8%. Overall this is a very nice blonde ale style. All around good balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
