From the bottle.

There was no head and light carbonation, a little bit of lacing on the top. The beer is hazy and very pale in color. The first smell I got was of sulfur immediately after pouring, but that faded slowly to just sweet light malt smell. I don't really get the hops in the nose at all. The taste is very pleasing, it almost reminds me of a kolsch that I had while I was in Germany, but not quite as clean. The taste tends towards the malt, the bitterness just sort of brings it towards balance but nothing substantial there. It feels a little thin to drink but it coats the front of my tongue, nothing lingers in the back of my mouth. Overall it is a good beer if you are going to sit down and have a few, I place it at a touch above average craft blondes.

This one is great for everyone. It will satisfy the old man new to the micro world and a beer nerd. Good beer for all consumers.

On tap into a pint glass

A - Beer is a very pale straw in color and clear with moderate carbonation and bubbles rising moderately quickly. Head is thin, frothy, and white. Head dissipates rather quickly to a thin lacing. 3.5/5

S - Very muted. Light sweet maltiness as well as clean, grassy hops are really the only notes that I get. As the beer warms a note of pear comes out as well. 3.5/5

T - Very light sweet maltiness as well as fresh white bread are the initial flavors to the tasting. Seems to be a pilsner malt based on taste. In the middle I am getting peach, pear, and a light stone fruit. Grassy hops on the back end with a light bitterness round out the flavor profile. 4.25/5

M - Very light and crisp. Carbonation tickle due to moderate carbonation. Not really as drying as I expected it to be. More of a smooth lightness than a dry lightness. 4.25/5

O - Not the typical blonde ale but very good nonetheless. Pear is a bit odd for a blonde but this beer remains a nice light offering. 4/5

Very yeasty wheat brew, with a fresh corn aroma and lemon finish.
