3.3/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A random scored while out for dinner on the town.
A - Pours a pale golden colour, finger of head with little retention and no real lacing.
S - Grassy hop notes, bready malts, sweet corn and a hint of sweetness on the finish.
T - Much like the nose with the grassy hop notes dominating alongside a hint of sweetness, sweet corn, buttered bread and a sour citrus flavour that lingers.
M - Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness.
O - Nothing mind blowing here, reminiscent of a traditional euro pale lager that doesn't quite bring the flavour profile to meet the Blonde Ale standards. Nonetheless, it's easy drinking and I certainly wasn't disappointed for having tried it.

Bottle: Poured a pale golden color lager with a large pure white foamy head with light retention and minimal lacing. Aroma of grainy cereal notes with some unrefined notes. Taste is somewhat harsh with unrefined grainy cereal notes. Body is light with medium carbonation. Quite messy beer at the end of the day which makes me long for macros.

L: Golden with light carbonation. A finger of thin foam when poured in a pint glass, lasts for a couple minute. Looks like an ale alright.

S: Smell of malt, nothing peculiar, sweet hint of fruit perhaps.

T: Taste of grain, perhaps a bit too much, but loyal to the fact that this beer is trying to emulate a classic pre-80s ale. Honest taste, nothing fancy, with slightly bitter aftertaste, just enough to balance with sweetness of the malt.
Nothing peculiar, but well executed nonetheless.

F: Thick enough, feels nice in mouth.

Good beer, but a bit on the expensive side. 4.50$ for half a liter is too much for too less. Its a great honest ale, It would be in my regulars if it were available in 12s and at a better price. I will not buy it again, there is better for less. It's a shame.

Slightly hazy straw color with dense activity. Faint creamy white 1 finger head, lasting around 5 minutes, with poor legs. Flavors of sweet grains, metal, caramel, faint floral and grassy hops. Biscuity with a dominant sugary feel. Slick and smooth medium body with nice zesty carbonation. Light finish, short lingering lemony feel, pleasant roasted corn, and notes of noble spices. Crispy, fresh, and satisfying. Decent flavors, good balance, a bit faint but at least it doesn't feel adjunct. Overall good quality casual blonde for a hot summer day.
