Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A nice fluffy and bleach white head. Barely makes about three fingers tall, but seems to slow sink into a soapy retention puck. Body is a golden light brass yellow, slightly hazy a bit, with some fine carbonation.

The nose provides a little mellow bread, but not much else. Non existent or very subuded hop aroma. A little bit of pastry like sweetness slightly, but otherwise kind of basic if fine. Not much else to say here or going on.

For an otherwise boring start, things improve a bit. A good chewy body of wheat denisty with some surprisng fruit tones in the mid palate. Faint juiced lemon and mushy orange flavor a bit. Finishes quite clean with a good chewy coating to match. Has some creamy tones, almost in a sort of Blue Moon oats way perhaps, but with a much less sweeter finish.

Overall while not a fav style, and one that I seem to randomly fall into from time to time and don't seek out, this one is a decent if not one of the better American blonde ales I've had.
