2.38/5  rDev -27%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

[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...

3.26/5  rDev 0%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

LOOK: Deep golden colored brew. Clarity is very nice. Fizzy head forms and has decent retention. No real lace to speak of.

SMELL: Mildly bready malts, flour, hop flower.

TASTE: Pale malt sweetness, a hint of wheat, and definitely some lemony citrus. Rather light but has a small peppery spice to it as well. Possibly some adjuncts, hop bitterness is light and pellet like.

FEEL: Light to medium bodied, aggressive carbonation.

OVERALL: Pretty crisp little summer ale here. No frills, no thrills, but a decent light option for outdoor activities in the summer.

Serving type: on-tap
