look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A-bright gold with a bright red hue. No head, minimal lacing

S-Very estery. Fresh apples/apple cider and pears with a hint of cinnamon

T-Almost same as smell. Very crisp and tart. The fruit isn't s noticeable in the taste as it is in the smell, however.

MF-crisp and thin, goes down easy

O-A good blonde ale. It smells fantastic (fruit and other spices) but those notes almost disappear when it comes to taste. Crisp and refreshing, drink very cold (IMO)

I'm not sure why the ABV is reported as being 5.7, unless it's been changed. The bottle I purchased today (1/17/13) is marked 4.6. That's a significant difference, and should be noted by those who are reviewing current bottles.

This is my first review here, and was prompted by a desire to correct the ABV amount. This beer is innocuous and forgettable. Light-bodied, light-flavored, and if served cold would be even more lacking in flavor. I have mine at roughly 65 F. I thought at first it would be a good summer afternoon cookout beer, but now that I'm almost finished with it, I would instead say avoid and look elsewhere. There are far more satisfyingly "gluggable" beers for such occasions.

Pours a slightly hazy, straw color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of citrus hops, slight pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of earthy malt, pine, and slight grass. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight grass, citrus hops, pine, sweet malt, and slight pale malt. Overall, decent aroma, blend, and body.
