From notes. Tasted in August 2010 from bottle obtained in a trade. Pours a hazy light orange with a fluffy white head that recedes to a lacy collar. Nose is slightly dusty and tart with some good citrus notes and a bit of barnyard yeast. The palate is more of the same with Meyer lemon and tartness along with the dust and barnyard. The body is light with average carbonation and a medium dusty and slightly tart and bitter finish.

Received a medium gold brew with a thin white head. No lace.
Light malt and some herbal bitter notes in the nose. Not complex, but neither is this beer.
Light and malty, with slight bitterness to round things out. Bready notes, without the yeast. Finishes lightly bitter.
Lighter bodied, good carbonation.
Overall, it is what you'd expect from the style. Food washer or hot weather brew. Nothing I'd chase again, but don't hate this either.
Serving type: on-tap

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Purchased on 7/28 with the new printed label. I miss the old paper labels...
A - As the name may suggest...a dirty blonde body. Nice and clear with a lot of rising carbonation. Small one finger high white head. A fair amount of lacing.
S - Quite inviting. Toasty malts, grains, light citrus and piney hops, and a bit of sweetness on the finish.
T - Starts off with some pine and fruitiness and finishes dry with toasted grains and a lingering sweetness similar to that found in a adjunct lager. Mouth feel is crisp and well carbonated, but a bit thin.
O - Nothing amazing or ground breaking, but a really easy drinking and palatable beer with flavor. The kind of beer you'd want in a cooler on a hot day.
