from a can, six pack recently picked up in SC. freshness is hard to figure out, code as follows 40509D3CD016 BD4213 Could have been canned in January or July

slightly hazy yellow, light carbonation,small head, leaving just a ring. Thin lacing. Slightly musty odor ,with some lemon. Lemon came through in the tasste, veryclean and simple taste. Very chuggable, the hotter the day, the better it would be. Slightly dry finish.

Decent blond.

This beer is pale gold, appropriate for the style, with a large very fluffy, not dense head. Good head retention, though it falls eventually. The nose offers plenty of malt, light and sweet and not at all grainy, with a hint of fruitiness. The flavor is solidly malty, and lies on the sweet side of things. Bitterness is low and hop flavor nonexistent. A little fruity at the finish.

One of the better blonde ales I've had, though it's not a style I seek out. The bready maltiness makes it a step above most grainy offerings.
