A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down, leaving wisps of lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of apricots are present in the nose; these become prominent once the beer warms up.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste is dominated by flavors of apricots and has slight hints of sweetness from the underlying malts.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and a little smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I'm not a big fan of blonde ales, but I really enjoyed this one as the aromas and flavors of apricots kept it from being bland. The lighter body nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink, and I could see this as being a good beer for the beach or the pool on a hot summer day.
