Picked up this 6'er that I probably would not normally have. On sale at Zipp's for $5.00

About a finger of white head, slowly receding to a thin film with generous collar.
Color on the brew is a darker golden yellow, all transparent.
Aroma providing some nice grains and plenty of malt, resembling honey and grassy hops with a citric rind tinge.
Taste is very well balanced, a lawnmower with actual flavor. Bready grains and light orange peel. Finishing dry and clean, almost not lingering flavors, just hints of grains and distant rind.

Terrific sessioner for the abv and flavor present.
Overall a good beer for the category. Not something I'd normally seek out, but I could drink more of this.

3.65/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours clear yellow with a pretty big white head that left some sticky lacing and stuck around for a while.

Aroma and flavor are somewhat citra-y, not overpoweringly so, but the hop is certainly noticeable. There's a lightly grainy backbone and a touch of sweet citrus.

Body is light and lawn-mower-y. Carbonation is light and could be a touch higher, but ain't bad.

Overall it's pretty refreshing and fits the description of a blonde ale pretty well.
