A - Nice clear-golden body with soft white head.

S - Pear and lemon notes.

T - Very clean and smooth with a nice tartness. Small hop notes at the finish.

M - Slides over the tongue and down the throat with ease, almost too much ease.

O - Very drinkable session beer. It's not meant to overwhelm the senses, and isn't for sitting down and sipping. This beer is meant for drinking quickly and often. I can feel the summer love. Prost!

12oz : pint glass

Clear golden yellow, foamy white head, light lacing.

Grassy, lightly citric notes. Light, crackery malt backing.

Medium body, foamy fizzy carbonation.

An easy drinking, well done summer blonde ale.
Just enough flavor to keep it interesting.
