a slightly hoppy full flavored blonde or golden ale here, that while drinkable as can be, also has a little more going on to it than is standard for the style. mosaic hops really define this one for me, classic in the way they present themselves both in the nose and the taste of this, familiar now, but fresh and fruity in this beer. the yeast is flavorless but the beer is dry and almost crisp, keeping it feeling plenty light even though there is some grain flavor and body here, a honey note to it, a shade richer and more complex than is common, and a nice balance to the mosaic hops. bitterness is really low and carbonation is really high, there is a dry hopped profile to the hops and a liveliness to the feel. almost a session ipa, they probably could have called it that, although the balance between the grain and the hops is different, and its all a bit more relaxed than anything called ipa ever seems to be. this should appeal to a really wide range of beer drinkers and seems just right for summer activities. i am sure this will sell well for them. a flavorful easy drinker.
