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

Girlfriend got me a single of this in a mixed pack, actually drank it on the beach.
I must say for a Summer/Blonde its pretty tastey. Seemed to have a little bit of a noble hop bite, kinda grassy, which I dug, nice and carbonated, much tastier than a Bud/PBR/ect. Had a more present malt body than would be expected, nice and bready. I probably would normally purchase something local/cheaper if going in this category but its one of the better "summer beers" out there. Quite quaffable.

Pours out a brassy gold with a moderately sized head. Smell is grainy with an odd hop smell. Hops have an herbal scent. I'm assuming that it's also the hops, but I'm picking up an odd, brothy aroma. Kind of like onion skins. Not feeling the smell. Taste is an improvement. Solid herbal/floral hops with a cracker grain malt body. Finish is clean, with slight ale yeast fruitiness. Mouthfeel is moderate overall. Overall this isn't bad, except for the weird aroma.
