Solid, clean, and crisp American Blonde Ale. Taste is of light hop, grass, and toasted malt. Very well balanced. I have others that I prefer in the style, but this is certainly worth trying.

Pours on the lemony/straw side of golden. Thin ring of lacy fizz. No read head. Initial impression of taste is sweet orange. Mild hop bitterness, also in the nose. Very faint nose overall. Faint belgian yeastiness also in the flavor profile, especially as the glass warmed up. Refreshing and light, but strikes the palate all at once; could be more complex. Still, I'd order one again.

Probably the most flavor-balanced beer available at this brewery. I could drink this all day when it's hot out!

Fun fact: It is only available when the MLS soccer season is under way (well that is most of the year anyway, so...)
