12 oz. straight from the bottle at Carrier's Mainely Lobster in Bucksport, Maine.

Appearance: Tough to get a read because it's from bottle (no glasses here), but it has a solid white head and a cool bottle design.

Aroma: Citrus, sweet malt. Some floral character.

Taste: Very nice blonde ale. Follows nose. Fruity and inviting. I don't really get the honey teased on the bottle design, but it doesn't really need it.

Mouthfeel: Summery, easy.

Overall: Good stuff. Perfect brew for a sunny day at a salty shack. Everything I want in a blonde ale.

From a 32oz. growler purchased a day ago.

Pours a golden color, about a finger of white head, fades at a moderate rate and only leaves a small bit of lacing.

Smell is mostly sweet malt, honey isn't really noticeable over the malt presences when it comes to aroma, hop profile is fairly weak but not unexpected for the style.

Taste is on the sweeter side with the malt, slight honey presence on the tongue only adds to the sweetness, mild hop presence does try to even things in the aftertaste but without a long lasting bitterness, good carbonation level, finishes semi-sweet.
