Served on-draught into a nonic pint glass at Russian River in Santa Rosa. Reviewed from notes. Expectations were high given the brewery, but it's hard not to compare it to Redemption.

A: Pours a half finger head of slight cream, bad thickness, and okay retention. Colour is a clear yellow-blonde.

Sm: Lemon esters, fresh barley, and excellent orange peel. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Wonderful orange peel complemented by pleasant brilliantly handled hops over a clean refreshing barley base. Quite complex for a blonde, and wonderful. Nicely balanced and very well built.

Mf: Smooth and wet, suiting the flavours very well. Crisp and clean. Very refreshing. Nearly perfectly complementary of the flavours. Spot on for the style.

Dr: Incredibly drinkable. Very refreshing; well priced for the quality. Among the best blondes I've tried (insert sex joke here). How they get that fresh orange note in there puzzles me.

Serving type: on-tap
