Blonde ales aren't generally my tipple but I got this one as a sample from a beer rep so it's my duty to try it out.
Pours a clear golden colour. What little head there is soon disappears to leave a few bubbles around the circumference. Very little lacing. A little too much grain in the aroma for my liking, but some pleasant floral notes are present. It has more flavour than many blondes that I've tried - a little on the sweet side with some bitterness in the background, but again with the grain. A halfway decent body for this style of beer.
If you're looking for a beer that goes down easily and doesn't give you a fight, this one would be worth trying.

3.54/5 rDev +6.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5
Poured from a can with an enjoy by date of 6/28/14; into a tumbler.
Appearance - bright yellow, bubbly carbonation; a thin white sheet of head that sticks around and leaves lots of lacing.
Smell - lemon, some banana and orange peel.
Taste - lemon and orange zest, some banana bread.
Feel - light, of course, flavorful early on, but an odd aftertaste and tounge coating to finish it off.
Overall - not my preference, but in a pinch I'd take a can or two to the pool.
