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.

Arrives in a liter mug, clear, bright, dark yellow with a creamy white head. Awesome lace, fabulous retention.
Smell is hops, malt, some grapefruit. Hops is strongest but not overpowering.
Taste is in line with the smell. Hops first followed by malt and a touch of wood. The same grapefruit note from the hops is here as well as a floral presence. Balance is good.
Medium plus body with a solid, tangy effervescence. Smoother than expected, and pleasantly so.
Serving type: on-tap
