12oz can (no date) poured into a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Clear light gold. Initial white head died back to a very thin ring at the edge and the barest of skin of foam across the top. A little bit of lacing - small islands and some small strands that would slowly slide down the glass.
Smell: Leafy, cut grass, and grains.
Taste: Crisp with a clean malt up front and the moving into a different sweetness to the malt...honey? Finish is mild citrus with a crisp bitter finish and some more of that grain earthiness that I got in the aroma.
Mouthfeel: Slick and surprisingly sticky. Light carbonation but still a little prickly on the palate.
Overall / Drinkability: Hmmm....one and done I'm afraid. Not interesting enough for me to want another. It's just okay in the end. I had it by itself and it may be better with food. Clashed with thai lime chile almonds....so maybe not with spicy food.

Pours slightly hazed orange blossom honey golden with a bright egg shell white hued head forms nicely with great retention and intricate lacing layered. Aroma pale malts express with biscuit bread dough hint of herbal and faint citrus hop accents just barely peak through. Let's see how it tastes, pleasant bready quality hints of fruit in the backend clean well constructed blonde ale, it looks like I have to seek out the Truth their IPA gets really solid scores and I love the artwork and color schemes on these cans. More about the flavor, really well built solid hop notes the can mentions Bravo and Crystal hops, I couldn't have picked those two out here but they add to a nice crisp dry finish, there's also some powdered yeast notes on the palate as well. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied alcohol I will classify as sessionable at 4.8% abv this is the no brainer, cruise control drinking beer...I wish my cousin would have brought more than a can from Cincy. He said he tried to bring me more but he had no self control. Overall very enjoyable easy to drink and enjoy, not a beer to overanalyze it is simply done yet really tasty.

Pours golden to orange in color with just a big of white head. The lacing looks to be setting up quite nicely. Brilliant clarity.
Huge bready malt character in the nose. Bits oh straw and a lemon zest come through as well.
This is bigger in body than I anticipated and it has a chewier mouthfeel that really makes this enjoyable. Just a touch of earthy hops that add some grassy notes and a bit of green pepper.
This is a very solid blonde ale. Easy drinking and it probably bridges the gap for those just getting into craft beer.
