3.55/5 rDev +10.9%
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass.
A - Pours a clear golden yellow, with a white head that leaves medium lacing. Dissipates fast, though.
S - Some citrus, hops, honey, a little coriander, maybe. Minimal.
T - A little breadiness, some citrus and hops. Earthy. A bit weak, honestly.
M - Light, maybe too light. Carbonation's on the higher end, without much aftertaste.
O - Worth trying since I'm a blonde ale fan, but this doesn't match up to Newcastle Brown or its blonde ale brethren.

Had on tap at the Corner Slice in Greensboro last night.Poured into a standard pint glass a clear light golden color with a nice looking sticky one finger bone white head atop.Toasted malts mainly in the nose,a hint of sweetness but not much.Crisp feel and toasted crisp flavors with a bit of iron as well on the palate.It's light and I didn't expect much but it went down real easy.

3.03/5 rDev -5.3%
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into and pint glass. The label lists the abv at 4.4% and there is a short description of the beer on the back.
Appearance: The body has a nice clear golden yellow color with about a finger thick white head on top. The head faded quickly leaving a nearly naked beer in the glass.
Smell: In the nose I get a mild grassy hop presence with a slight touch of lemony citrus hops and very light sour dough bread notes as well.
Taste/Palate: Bombshells flavor starts with a base of sourdough bread like maltiness with a thin grassy and flat earthy hop presence for balance. I also picked up some light toasted notes and even a very slight oxidized flavor in the finish.
Notes: Overall this one just didn’t impress me.
