A - Pours a golden amber with a frothy eggshell head. Nice lacing on the glass.

S - Lemon zest with a clean malt bill.

T - Light malts, dry lemon (not sour by any means and slightly sweet), turns somewhat floral and has a light bitter ending.

M - Easy drinking and refreshing. Light bodied with medium carbonation and has a wet finish.

O - Not a bad offering from our friends just a bit south of me.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

A: slightly hazy straw/gold, average white head, solid retention
A: wet sugar, honey, Granny Smith apples, white grape juice, flour
T: strikingly crisp apple, pear, balanced by bread dough and wheat. Leafy (dill?) hop flavor and bitterness.
M/D: medium body and high carbonation, dryness encourages more sips, immediately
O: flavorful, (nearly) sessionable, versatile, and drinkable. A very engaging example of the style

Good looking. Dark for a typical blonde, but I guess that's why she's called a "dirty blonde". Looks more like a pale.
Low on aroma as you would expect from a blonde, but... there is a subtle lift of hops as you swirl the glass and sniff. I had mine in a nonic because it comes in 16 ounce cans. Some slight fruity scents of note.
Taste Great. Not less filling. Very flavorful blonde ale. Easy to drink with hints of hops on the tail end. Very clean.
The mouthfeel is different than most blondes. Subtle roasty characteristics come out as the hops and malt mix well on the sides of the mouth and then it finishes clean with slight, very little bitterness.
Very well done.
