4/5 rDev +3.1%
750mL growler poured into a pint glass
A slightly cloudy golden yellow with some streams of bubbles pushing north. A fluffy off-white cap clings to the sides and reveals some good looking sip marks.
Some cereal-like grainy notes along with earthy, grassy hops and a touch of green apple and pear. Hits the style points pretty well.
Follows the nose here. Some soft fruit up front before a rush of grains, drying out to an earthy, grassy, grainy finish. A crisp, dry finish with a very mild earthy bitterness.
Light-bodied, refreshing, crisp, and dry.
I have to say this hits the style points pretty damn well, but I didn't love this beer enough to go higher than 4 across the board. This is a great beer for what it is trying to do, and I can respect that.

Not sure how I kept missing this for a review, but finally got to.
The pour forces a nice big head, pasty white fluffy airy almost 3 finger head that fades at a med pace, and the head even crowns up the sides of the glass for a long time, nice sticky lacing, quite clear golden straw honey colored beer.
Nose has lager like aromas, crisp soft pilsner malts, little fruity, some grassy noble like hops, slightly earthy grassy hops, straw, wet hay, blonde juicy like malts, little grainy, and very faint lemon pastry like aroma.
Taste starts with the blonde ale, toasty grainy malts right out of the gate, cracked straw like again, pilsner toasty like malts, and faint almost wheat like even, as well as a juicy but soft crisp lager like feel and flavor. Then into hops, a fair bitterness with grassy slightly juicy hops, a little earthiness as well with that, and hint of lemongrass. The hops turn a bit spicy and chewy and quite bitter, even a little salty, as it finishes dry and quite bitter, long lingering bitter hop profile and crisp.
Mouth is med to lighter bodied, nice carb.
Overall not bad, pretty well done for a bland... I mean blonde ale. Typically one of the least interesting beers, but if done well it can get some nice flavors and soft feel at the same time, which this one brings. It has a nice hop profile mostly, but the spicy salty earthy quite bitter finish actually detracts a little from this one as that seems to take away from the intention of the beer. But still a hoppy blonde ale esp for lager fans.

750ml THB swing-top bottle filled at the brewery.
First THB glass pours with a 1/4" white head, over the slightly cloudy golden brew. Head quickly recedes to the rim, with leggy sticky lace. Aroma is sedately balanced with sweet pale and controlled hops.
Taste is pale sweetness to start, rounded bitterness with a touch of citrus i the middle, and and bitter continues on through the close at a moderate level. Mouthfeel is smooth, and drinkability is easy. Session brew here, no problem.
