Thanks to tsatem for this!

A - Murky and cloudy amber/yellow. Thick white head with huge bubbles vanishes before my eyes.

S - lemon, black pepper, tomato, sweet malt.

T - Clean and crisp malt, some vanilla, touch of lemony zest.

M - smooth and creamy, quite light. A touch drying.

D - well this is very drinkable. tastes pretty good, pleasant, and not heavy.

Poured from can into pint glass

A: Deep hazy golden color. Nice fluffy two finger head that settles fairly quickly.

S: Sweet, carmel and honey.

T: Tasty brew. Follows the nose with a little unexpected banana. Mainly sweet malty goodness but has a touch of hop spice. Almost buttery.

M: Thick compared to most other blond ales I have had. medium carbonation.

O: Great beer from southern star. Since it comes in a can I can see myself quaffing alot of these by the pool.
