A - Pours a bubbly golden color with a fluffy, white 2 finger head.

S - Not much of an aroma at all. Yeast and malt is about all there is - Very clean and simple but nothing spectacular.

T - Plain but not bad. Malty and not much of an indication of hops present. Ever so slight notes of citrus as well. Again, plain.

M - Harsher than was expecting. Too carbonated for my preferences and very light bodied. Feels like a bitter soda.

O - One of my favorite brewer's however not one my favorite beers. Not bad not memorable. An average beer and that is all.

Pours a hazy pale yellow. White head is short and foamy. Doesn't last long.

Smells of bready malt, Light citrus hops, grassy and light yeast

Tastes sweet malts fading to a stronger then expected dry finish with pine and citrus. Lighter body with medium carbonation. Smooth mouth feel. You can drink this fairly quickly. Nice refreshing drink. Not overly powerful. Nice one in a while leaves you wanting more

Poured to a tulip glass.

A: The body is crystalline yellow. Head is white, one finger thick, some lacing visible.
S: Yeasty, malty and hoppy profiles.
T: The taste is purely malty and hoppy. No earthy, resinous ou citrus profiles. Just pure hops and barley.
M: Body is medium to medium low. Carbonation is high. Bitterness is mild.
O: This is a great American Blonde Ale, really cool.
