Just past the Best Before Date of Dec. 12 2011, I missed this one in the fridge.

A - Pours a lightly hazy golden colour, finger of head with some retention and sporadic lacing.

S - Mild on the nose, leafy citrus notes, slightly musty and a hint of caramel on the finish.

T - Nice citrus hop presence, leafy and earthy (much like implied by the nose), a tad mild but great for a summer ale. Hint of bready malt lingers alongside the bitter leafy notes.

M - Medium bodied, smooth and wet.

O - This is a tasty summer ale and very suitable for the style. The flavours are mild yet satisfying. I could easily down quite a few of these on a hot summer's day and certainly won't overwhelm the palette.

Pours a hazy, golden/copper color. 1/2 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of slight wheat, sweet malt, citrus hops, and a hint of pine. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of citrus hops, slight pine, sweet malt, and a hint of wheat. Overall, an easy-drinking beer. Good feel, appearance, body, and aroma.
