A- Golden straw with a 1" fluffy head.

S- Smells of grassy, citrusy hops. A little malt and not much poking through. Very earthy. Almost like fresh-cut grass.

T- Much like it smells. Very grassy, like someone mowed their lawn right into the glass. Light to moderate hop bitterness with a citric bite. A little malt to back it up.

M- Very light, thin and yet silky mouthfeel. Very carbonated, tonic-esque. Massages the tongue nicely.

D- So, so drinkable. I could mow lawns for an eternity and not drink too much of this. Although, I would get tired of the taste after 2 or 3.

Pours a very nice clean golden color (typically, it's less deep than I like in a pale ale, but it's described as a hoppy blonde ale, so the color works) with some very nice head and good lacing. Great aroma with clean malt scents and a wonderful grassy hop hit in the nose. Very nice taste, a clean and simple blonde ale with a wonderful earthy and grassy hop flavor at the end. It goes down wonderfully smooth, and is a very sessionable beer.
