[Suggested glassware: Shaker Glass]
The pour was a clear light yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white foamy head that diminished quickly, down to a thin puddled film and had fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was very mild with a light bread malt, light grassy hops and a sweaty yeast with a mild adjunct (corn) odor and just a hint of citrus (lemon).
The taste was very lightly sweet and just a tad malty, which pretty much was the case throughout, with the finish having a mild citrus presence and a adjunct taste towards the end. The flavor was average in duration, with a lightly tart citrusy adjunct taste left behind on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was light in body and mildly dry in texture with a soft carbonation.
Overall this was a pretty basic light American Blonde Ale with a slight citrus tartness at the end...

Notes are from 5/28
Crystal clear and bright, this yellow-gold brew looks pretty much the way I expect a "summer ale" to look. It develops a soft white head with moderation in both retention and lacing, a layer of foam left a few minutes in laying down sturdy spotting and light patching mixed.
Aroma and flavor display a light note of grains and a pale, sweet fruitiness as the main components. There's a biscuit touch as well, and the very light hops addition is mildly grassy and herbal. The flavor follows the aroma except that it fades at the end and only a weird mingling of dryness, herb and overripe banana reaches the finish, and briefly.
It's light-bodied, as it should be, with a softer crispness that, while constant, gives preference to smoothness. A little leaf dries it out, but it never leaves the area between semi-dry and semi-sweet.
Serving type: on-tap
