This one was on the discount table, no date. Pours a cloudy bright yellow with an off-white, slightly tan, foamy head. The head sticks around, 1/2 an inch, for the duration. The lacing is OK - little, dry spots of popped bubbles, like sea foam on the beach. The smell is fairly one-dimensional - nothing objectionable, nothing out-of-this-world: sour grain, some citrus/vinegar. It's a clean-tasting, dry beer. If this weren't the coldest night in November in Alabama but rather, oh, JULY, then this would be an amazingly refreshing ale. Sharp, metallic hoppiness, grapefruit rind, basil, lavender. This one doesn't leave you parched, and the carbonation's just about right. There's a bit of density to it that is welcome, as it's not watery or thin. A good go at it.

Bright blonde with a minor head that stuck around, this looks nice. There is a slightly opaque glow that gives it some character, while lace is minimal but present.

The smell is simple yet delightful, a plain mix of light malts and pine hop flavor that may not be intriguing but it certainly is pleasing. The taste leads with light biscuit flavors, followed by yeast, cleaned up with a touch of hop bitterness. If this is what I expected when I saw a blonde on the menu at a new establishment, I would order the style much more frequently.
