On tap at Rustico - Alexandria. Served in a pilsner glass.

Very clear golden color. Short head and no retention. Nose has very light grain. Pretty boring. Flavor has the lightest of grain. Very very light hops. Really not much going on. No hop or yeast character, and nothing from the malt either. Just a really boring beer, even considering the style. Feel is quite light with medium carbonation. I didnt want to finish the glass after a few sips.

The beer is dark golden / orange and pretty clear with a small, off-white collar. The aroma is sweet, with ripe fruits and sweet breads. Grainy and too sweet. Out of balance. The finish should be drier. Cloying and a chore to drink. When I think of a good blonde ale under five percent abv, I think thirst quenching, refreshing, easy drinking beer. This beer misses the mark.

I've read several reviews and the term "meh" is something I would agree with. EVO is one of my favorite breweries so I'll give them a pass on this one. I liked the concept so I poured a 12oz bottle into a snifter with hopeful expectations. There was a light floral aroma and flavor but too much carbonation for my taste. Nice color with minimal head and no lacing. There is nothing bad about this brew but nothing exceptional about it either. Meh.

A: pours a clear light gold into an American shaker with a thin white head that dissipates slowly.

S: grassy, malt, light caramels, wheat.

T: light subdued sweet malts and wheat turn into a nice grass flavor with some lemon hints.

MF: light body and poor carbonation, a bit watery.

O: just ok as far as the american blondes go, there are far better examples of the style.

12 oz bottle. Aug 2013 notched on the bottle.

A: hazy, lots of sediment. orange body. vivacious carb racing to the surface. head is meh. retention is non-existent.

S: smells strongly Belgian. chamomile and honey. smell sort of like tea.

T: sweet. slight toffee. initial sip makes me think that there is something wrong here... I don't say this that often with brews that utilize honey, but you can actually taste the honey. it surprisingly didn't ferment out completely. tastes like a heavily honey'ed cup of tea. until the finish when it dries out entirely. finish is like water.

M: average carb on a light body.

D: pass. too much going on here on a body not enough to support all of these ingredients. not sure what the goal is here, but they need to do some re-working.
