22oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

(A)- Pours a slightly hazed golden yellow color with subtle white froth.

(S)- A nice spicy honey sweetness to it that really reminds me of a mead.

(T)- A nice sweet honey maltiness meets a mild yeasty but spicy lightness that is a bit hard to describe; Almost biscuit-like.

(M)- A good crisp carbonation level meets a sweet but lighter body with a slightly yeasty but spice driven profile.

(O)- An interesting blonde with a nice spiciness to the yeast profile.

Reviewed from a 22oz bottle. Appearance is light golden with a slight orange hue, large pillowy white head forms from this naturally carbonated brew. Sweet grain jumps out first in the aroma, not biscuity but a touch of caramel with a clean slightly toasted pale malt backbone. Definitely a fair amount of hops in the nose, mostly floral perfumy notes with slight spiciness and grassiness.

At first sip, those floral hop notes in the aroma transform into bit of peach and tangerine flavor, possibly playing off some esters unnoticed in the aroma, and again with that light spiciness backing it up a bit. Delicate hop flavor bobs on top a slightly sweet clean malt flavor, less from any caramel malt than from residual sweetness from base pale malt. Far from cloying sweet but not all that dried out either.

Overall an easy drinking beer, a decent session ale. A bit hoppier than I would think for a blond but definitely not quite a pale ale. Quality ingredients and subtle complexity needed for a truly sessionable ale.
