2.63/5 rDev -21.5%
A: clean, clear, light, blonde, 2 finger head that dissipates very quickly.
S: faint smell of citrus hops and bread, not much here
T: metallic- almost like a cheap champagne, faint citrus taste;I expected more
M: clean, light and crisp
O: decent blonde ale, but subpar. Very sessionable with high ABV, but not my personal choice for a blonde ale- drinks more like an American light lager.

A: Average look for blonde. Not impressive head for this style. Like much more in terms of head and lacing for blonde.
S: Metalic. Common for this brewery so far.
T: Eh. Phenol flavors that seem to overpower. Not very balanced.
O: Good, but not too impressive.

Poured from a 12 oz can, into a tumbler.
A: Hay color. Medium heavy carbonation. Pours about a half finger, foamy, white head. Settles pretty quickly, leaving a blanket of foam on the surface. Thick, beer ring lacing.
S: French bread.... not much else.
T: Sourdough bread, with a really doughy, pungent flavor.
M: Light body, pungent aftertaste.
D: Pound and enjoy.
Atmosphere is good enough. Fair body, and nondescript nose. Flavor is a light and crisp doughy thing. Overall, this is a pretty good quaff.

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.
