On the dark side for a blonde, this beer is almost a pale amber, definitely a dark yellow. The white head is a small and creamy one, falling somewhat quickly but never diminishing entirely. A foam stays for the session and rings the glass while laying down moderate spotting.
I get very little from the nose, though some effort brings up honeysuckle and grains with a bit of must.
The flavor is odd, moving from bready to grainy to sort of musty with a nutty pith and finishing strangely as a lingering taste is somewhat empty. A bit of bread and leaf even out the middle well enough to make it average as a sugared grapefruit note makes for a balancing sweet/tart sort of element.
This beer is appropriately light-bodied but begins with a strong carbonation that's all fizz and no real substance. Smoothness keeps up pretty well but it's not especially clean and gets a little foamy. It's okay, all in all.

A- Golden orange color with heavy carbonation. Small, rapidly diminishing head.

S- Some malt and breads, but mainly grapefruit

T- Semi-sweet w/ slightly bitter finish.

M- Super light, high carbonation

O- Seems like a good beer to have on a hot summer day, but overall not overly impressed with this one. Reminded me more of a macro brew than the other great beers I've had from Frankenmuth.
