Notes: Citrusy and thirst-quenching, this refreshing golden ale is highlighted by the use of unique hops.

Pours a hazy and very pale yellow with a fat creamy head of white foam that lasts and leaves great lace. Nose is malty with only a touch of sweetness on it. No fruity esters, no hops to speak of on the nose really. A faint little floral does creep into the background. As it warms a touch of sweet grass also makes it's way into the nose. That floral is very uplifting in the nose. It's not a loud nose so you have to get right down in the glass.

Taste is excellent. Favors the malt and the hops are restrained. They offer balance, beauty and not too much bitterness to the drink. The herbal and the malt come together softly and sweetly in the dry finish. It's smooth and very easy to drink.

I think it's excellent and with an abv of only 4% this is a tasty little summer beer. Blonde ales are cousins to kolsch and this one sure reminds you of that. I would say that it's only flaw is that the bitterness becomes a bit much as it lingers.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Appearance – Poured a pale straw in color with the slightest amount of haze. Very little head with no lacing

Smell – Sweet hay and white bread are the predominate smells given off by this beer. A little funk given of by the hops, but very mellow.

Taste – Crisp, clean, and sweet. Very grainy throughout with hints of corn. There was a bit of citrus flavor (lime) throughout, though it is most noticeable in the finish.

Mouthfeel – Honestly it was very thin and the hops used gave the beer a bit of astringency. The beer was very carbonated adding to the thin texture.

Pale yellow in color. Fairly clear in appearance. Nice subtle lager flavor. Noble hop earthiness, clean simple pilsner malt. Nothing special. Overall, lacks flavor.
