Pours straw gold color and is clear. Modest head that dies off to rim bubbles. No lace.
Mild raw grain smell. It's as if the barley was barely malted. Low hop.
Reminds me of a Kolsch, which is a distinct improvement from the smell. Lots of pale malt up front with just enough hop to provide balance. The body of this beer seems off to me; it's way too thin and the carbonation is way to high. This is distracting. Otherwise, I find this to be a flavorful blonde.
Serving type: on-tap

3.54/5 rDev +6%
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.
Serving type: can
