Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a snifter. Received this as a gift from a family member in East Longmeadow, MA.

A- Pours a ever so hazy, golden orange body with slowly rising a 2 finger white head that reduces fairly quickly but leaves some blotchy lacing.

S- I really have to strain to get a good sense of the aroma.. I get some pine, floral notes, and some citrus peel.

T- This is very similar to a pale ale, the hops are subtle but definitely play a big role here.. the first sip reveals a floral, peppery, piney character with a slight tropical feel, grapefruit and citrus.

M- Easy drinker, but somewhat undercarbonated. Medium-light body.

This was a pretty good beer. Nice and balanced. I have a hard time believing it's 20 IBU though, the hops leave a lingering bitterness.

Poured into a 10oz glass from a super fresh bottle (July 3)

A - Very nice looking beer. Spiraling carbonation in straw yellow color. Microfoam head with little retention but tons of foamy lacing.

S - Nice and hoppy with some faint vanilla and lavender. Wasn't sure what it meant by blonde, it is not Belgian it is just super pale.

T - Wicked pale malt. Sort of like a paler pilsner but with a classic hoppyness. Makes use of all 20 IBUs for sure, has a great lingering hop bitterness. Light toasty flavor.

M - Dry. Nice and refreshing for the summertime. The carbonation is a little thin, it's more foamy than bubbly.

O - Yet to drink a Brewmaster I haven't liked. Cheers to a local tasting fresh brew that is worth the money, this beer was a good value (Quality Liquors Salem)
