Nothing too profound about this one - just a nice, pleasant summer blonde with a solid hop presence and smooth finish. Summer beers are some of my favorite, so I don't know if it stands up among the best, but I can see myself buying a six pack a year.

Poured into a standard pint glass.

The beer is a nice clear honey gold color. An off-white head recedes to a light bubbly film. Good rings of lacing occur as the beer goes down.

The beer smells sweet and hoppy. A honey glazed over woody pine.

A refreshing taste of sweet floral notes over a more malty, woody base. Lots of sweet apricot in the middle. A bright, hoppy dry finish.

Mouthfeel is dry, bright, and mellow, with enough weight to almost feel creamy.

Overall, a solid clean summer beer. It could be a bit more "airy" and light on the mouthfeel, but still worth a night on the deck as the sun sets.

A - Poured out a clear, orange color with a one-finger, khaki colored head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of citrus notes with touches of pine.

T - It tasted very citrusy and bright - mostly orange peel. A light piney bitterness with some grains and sweet caramel.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is a very tasty and easy drinking summer ale. Nice in the 100 degree temps.
