Had an imperial pint with lunch (scrambled eggs w/ shrimp and kim chi) at Tilia. It's a clean, toasty blonde with a hint of citrus hops. Nothing groundbreaking here, but it's a clean and tasty beer with enough flavor to compliment a meal but still go down easy on a hot day. I liked that the bready, toasted, barley stood out as opposed to being a bland, sweet note in a boring beer, like so many blondes. Give it a try.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz pour at the tavern on 4&5

look is a clear golden orange with a very small ring of head and no real lacing or retention. smell is light and airy, skunky wheat and sweet malt. taste is bitter hops and sweet peanut buttery malt.

great blonde, first beer of theirs I've been impressed by.
