Blondes are not one of my favorite styles, but this might be converting me.

A hazy blonde color ("Clarity is overrated" on the can). Good lacing all the way down even though the head faded fast.

Fruity aromas and flavors. Very smooth and creamy. Nice mouthfeel and flavors. Much creamier and richer tasting than the ABV would lead you to expect.

Very drinkable, very smooth. I will have to drink more blondes because I just might like this style.

Acquired this from gramatton so a big THANK YOU goes out to him!

A: This beer pours a hazy orange color with two finger of white creamy head. Head retains nicely leaving a thick coating of sticky lacing.

S: Nose is of pale malts, grain, touch of citrus and floral hops.

T: Taste starts with a bit of lemon citrus hops. Malt character quickly takes over - pale malts, grain and a hint of biscuit fill through the middle. Finish then has a fruity nature of some apple and banana in the finish coupled with a hint of floral hops.

M: Light body, medium carbonation, with a light but creamy feeling on the tongue.

D: Well balanced, nicely blended, decent representation of style, goes down very easy and definitely one to sit with for a while.

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.
