3.51/5  rDev -1.7%

Poured two fingers of head on a hazy, dark golden colored body. Great head retention.
The aroma has a nice floral scent, honey and dry grain.
The taste is a little disjointed, a moderate dry bitterness moves to a harsher bitter taste. A little bread and yeast.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Looks and smells great, the taste wasn't as good but still a worthy beer.

Appearance - Pours a semi-hazy, pure golden color with a white, 2 finger head. Good retention, resulting in fine layer of microbubbles across the surface. Fair lacing with good stick.

Smell - Prominent grain aroma. Faint honey and grass notes.

Taste - Follows the nose. Clean, crisp and strong in grain character. Touches on ester sweetness mid-taste; faint red apple and stone fruit. Hints of honey. Slight notes of grassy bitterness near the back end before a well balanced finish.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with moderate carbonation. Somewhat velvety in smoothness, going down with great ease. Fairly dry finish.

Overall - Your classic American blonde, and a fantastic example at that. Clean, crisp flavors. Very lager like, but with that fruity ale yeast presence. A great beer for the backyard BBQs you'll be having all summer long.
