Solid blonde. Nothing exceptional but was a good beer for the golf course. Easy drinking.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a hazy golden orange with a small white head. The aroma is lemon, wheat and malt. The flavor is a nice blend of citrus and malt. A decent version of a blonde ale.
