Poured a bit into a cup to see how it looks. Pale, straw golden nice big white foamy head.

Aroma is light. Some very subtle hints of corn. Honey. Spice and citrus. All are light at the most. Kind of a lemon-snap cookie aroma

Flavors are also light. More malt than snap, but not clinging. Some clove and spice. Real easy on the palate, no corn or other defects. Light green grass.

This beer goes down quite well. Could use a bit more spice, just a bit. Body was light and carbonation seemed a bit down. Still, good summer beer

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours out to a rocky, frothy white head that falls very little. Lacing is moderate. Pale straw-gold color. Aroma is sweet grains, floral hops and a slight butter-creme note. Flavor is mostly pale lager malt and noble hops to balance, with a dry, crisp finish. Mouthfeel is light and CO2 is appropriate. This is a very good Blonde Ale.
