Clear gold color. Moderate head which is continually replenished by upward bubbles. Nice wide streaks for lace.

The smell is nearly nonexistent.

The flavor starts with a light pale malt and no graininess. Decent body with a slightly elevated carbonation level. Very nice hop presence in the finish -- not enough to overwhelm, but enough to provide a distinct balance to the beer. This makes it one of the better Blondes I've had.

The appearance is a pale golden colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies leaving some nice sticky foamy lacing in its wake. The smell has a clean crisp sweet wheat and a little bit of fresh sweet corn. The taste is mainly sweet through the wheat and corn and combined pretty well done - I like it. It has a sweet wheat aftertaste and dry crisp finish. The palate is light bodied and is fairly sessionable. Carbonation comes across fairly smooth and I’d say pretty good to me. Overall, pretty nice blonde ale that I could have again.

I had this in a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi - clear yellow color with some light streams of carbonated bubbles that were seen rising. The head was about a finger's worth of white foaminess that lingered and then died to a light cap of a head.
The smell had a light sweet corn with a slight cereal sweet/breadiness backed up by some citrus.
The taste was basically the same.
The mouthfeel was light and moved across my tongue and mouth in a gentle sessionable sort of way.
Overall, pretty good beer to have again. It's a good one in the summer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light straw amber with gold tints and a half finger white head that dissipates to a thick film and ring around the glass with light lacing. Light aroma of bready malt, slightly vegetal, light grassy hops. Flavor is very light biscuit malt to start, but develops nice light bready malt and light grassy hops to finish lightly biscuit with gentle hops. Light to medium bodied with active carbonation. A light biscuit take on the blonde style with a hint of a drier Belgian yeast in the mix. Nothing really stands out, but a nice light blonde with mild but interesting flavors.
