4/5  rDev +22%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle.

Smell: A light floral and slight citrus touch as well.

Taste: Light malt flavor with a hint of citrus.

The mouth feel is light, which is expected for a summer ale. This is on my list of "must haves" during the summer as it is light and refreshing. I really like that it doesn't have the heavy citrus flavor that a lot of summer brews have. It's a must try for those that like the summer seasonals.

[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...
