3.49/5  rDev +8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

L: A ~1/4 finger dark beige head after a light pour, dissipated int thin lacing quickly. Golden yellow with large white particulates suspended throughout.
S: Not a whole lot of nose, maybe some sweet malt?
T: Oats, malt and those kind of cereals, like the taste of hearty, healthy bread in liquid form without the texture.
F: Nice. I expected a beer with these flavors to have a pretty thick mouth feel, but it's light and velvety
O: Found out this is a blonde ale by scanning the QR code on the bottle. Definitely one of the more robust, grain-flavored blonds I've had.

Pale straw in color. The malt and hops are pretty weak. This is a basic blonde ale - nothing special to report.

This is the Brewworks offering most likely to be ordered by someone not really into craft.

12/28...on tap in Allentown...pours clear gold with active bubbles and white foam. Sunny citrus malt. Crisp finish. Nice hop bite at close. Quite good for a leadoff american blonde ale.

This brew pours an opaque golden orange color with a white one finger head some of which remains on the top until the end. There is moderate carbonation and lacing.

The smell is musty straw and wet hay, coriander and bubble gum. Sweet malts are present.

The taste is sweet malt and spices followed by more malt and peppery hops at the end. There might be some fruit, (apple?) in there as well.

The mouthfeel is smooth and tangy due to the carbonation; crisp and cracker like as well.

Overall this is a good beer. I could knock back several of these on a hot summer day.
