Rich blueberry aroma, though lacking flavor

Deep golden hue filtered blueberry ale, not a fan of synthetic fruit beer this is one of those generic golden ales with fake blueberry flavor in the finish. Light speckled head leaves a fine trail of lacing. Aroma has that fruity pebbles blueberry manufactured food additive nose. Flavor is slightly tart with blueberry/citrus notes and even earthy dry grains. Mouthfeel is light bodied meant to be consumed in the warm weather, this beer has probably found it's audience already, sorry I can't do this regularly.

My guilty pleasure beer... Blueberries are my favorite fruit so this is my go-to beer when I'm hungover, drinking early in the morning for some reason, or need to switch from high ABV beers to something more sessionable.
