3.36/5  rDev -7.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of grains, some sweetness. Taste is grains, hops, light malts, dry at the finish. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall isn't bad, but nothing special.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: crystal clear; pale gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded to a wispy cap; nice lacing; lots of bubbles rising;

S: not a lot of aroma; what's there is grain and lemon;

T: grain from start to finish; some non-descript, slightly tart citrus in the middle that sticks to your tongue through the finish; mild bitterness at the end;

M: light to medium bodied; moderate carbonation;

O: easy drinking; a craft beer that BMC drinkers could handle, but with enough complexity and flavor to satisfy a craft beer aficionado;

12 oz can

Pours near clear, dull looking lighter amber, off white head, going to a thicker film, thicker collar and some low sheeting.

Faint nose of some sweetness is all I am picking up

Grainy, hoppy and dry little brew...nothing special, but this would work as a better then decent sessioner.

This beer pours a straw golden color with the slightest bit of chill haze. The head is 2 fingers, soapy and bright white. Retention is minimal and there are some whispy rings of lacing.

Smell is very grainy. It is hard to pick up on much else other than a hint of sweetness.

Taste is much better and more balanced. The graininess is there, but accompanied by crackery and sweet malt as well as floral and spicy hops.

Feel is light and crisp with moderate carbonation.

Overall a very solid beer. Easy drinking and very refreshing. Not super flavorful, but definitely good for what it is.

3.84/5  rDev +5.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Sampling a cool 12 oz can poured into a chalice. The beer pours a bright clear golden color with a small amount of bleached white head foaming up about .5 cm and fading to only one wispy island floating on the surface. The aroma is slightly sweet with floral notes and a bit of sweet honey malt. Generally a mild nose overall. FIrst sip reveals a light body and fine tingly carbonation. Very easy drinking physical characteristics.
Flavor is also light and slightly sweet. some caramel and cereal malt with a little astringent hop bite on each swallow, slightly dries out my palate after each sip. This isnt a complex beer but it is good for what it is, an easy drinking, sessionable blonde ale. Interesting enough to keep coming back and not boozy to cut a night short.
Another solid beer from this brewery.
