Serve it cold. I repeat, serve it cold. There is something terrific about this beer in a can served ice cold on a hot summer day. Granted, a lot of low quality beers taste pretty decent if you really get them cold. But this beer is different and doesn't fall within that category. It has some body, texture, and a satisfying breadiness.

I've had it served on draft at many bars and they routinely don't get the temperature correct and it just doesn't taste right to me.

Picked this up in Kentucky

Pours an opague apricot with 2+ fingers of cream colored head. Good lacing & head retention

S: Breadyness, pear, some steely hops

T: Follows the nose, plus white grapes up front & a touch of lemon too. More fruittyness, slight bready sweetness & faint lemony hops as this warms, Finishes with pear & lemony hops mixed a slight breadyness

MF: Fluffy body, slight carbonation, decent balance

Drinks eay, a slightly off-centered Blonde IMO, but more interesting than most of this style

Pours hazy gold with a massive, fluffy biege head. The head dissipates slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. The head retains very well. The smell is pretty mild, but I can detect some breadiness as well as some citrus. The taste is bready with some strong citrus flavor. There is some bitterness on the back end. The body is light to medium. The beer is refreshing and easy to drink. Overall, this is a good beer. This would be great for drinking on a hot summer day.
