From the bottle only.

S : cracker malts, lemon rind, orange zest.

T: some of the same, with melon notes and biscuit malt. Kolsch-like.

F : medium bodued but still refreshing.

O : I loved this Blonde Ale. Having it with a friend on his back patio, so the review is short and sweet. I'd rather savor the moment and conversation than bother with the review, but I had to take notes as I more than likely won't be buying it soon. However...I'd have it again.

12 oz bottle, bottled on 6/27/15. Clear dark golden color, thick and fluffy one finger head. Good retention and lace quite nicely. Grassy and piney aroma, with just a hint of cracker or bread. Just a hint of ester on the taste, followed by a nice piney taste and cracker flavors. Mouthfeel was thick and juicy and well carbonated. Overall, I wasn't expecting much from this beer and was pleasantly surprised, pretty good stuff, I can see why the Bros rated it the way they did.
