I can’t believe I have not reviewed this beer. On a recent company three day meeting in Chicago, I had this beer on tap at two different locations. Usually you see Daisy Cutter and I was kind of surprised to bump into it twice in three days. I drank a ton of it as it went perfectly with the weather and the Hawks winning the Stanley Cup!!

Poured into a standard shaker, the beer is a vibrant chill hazed gold with a decent clingy white head.

The beer’s nose is of fresh grains, a bit of citrus and floral notes. It is fresh and inviting.

Beer is well balanced. There are sweet bready malts, balanced by citrus and floral notes. I swear there is something like honey at midglass. A touch of lemon rind and a hint of cracker at the finish.

Mouth is crisp and inviting. This is an easy drinking session beer with enough facets to keep you coming back. Well done!

An interesting, and not typical blonde ale. Looks nice, but cloudy. Good head. Interesting body. Full. Carries way more body than a blonde ale usually does. If this were what a blonde ale typically was, I'd be happy. Unfortunately that isn't the case. Other brewers should follow this lead. Either way, a nice beer to try.
