Pale gold with a frothy, clean white head. Aroma is crisp citrus, grass, grains. Refreshing. A taste reveals a clean, crisp body of pilsner malts, giving way into a firm, but not heavy,bitterness. Nicely defined hop flavors,though not overwhelming. The light/medium body contributes to the refreshing characteristics, and the finish is fairly dry, with a a touch of lingering bitterness.

Overall, a fantastic, flavorful, and refined, refreshing blonde ale. An example of what the often overlooked style can really be.
