L (4.25) - Nice bright orange beer. Looks like you'd expect, given the name
S (4.5) - Smells wonderful. Citrusy, bright, summertime, all that jazz.
T (3.75) - This beer tastes okay. A little one dimensional for me (I get why). Not disappointed in the flavor by any means.
F (3.5) - A little lighter bodied or watery than I'd like. It makes for an easy drinking beer. Surprisingly high carb, though.
O (4) - I *liked* this beer. It was at a wedding, and made for a very good beer for an outdoor reception in the summer. Solid beer from a solid brewer, hitting the target they were aiming for.

Pours a clear, gold color. 1/4 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and great lacing. Smells of floral hops, slight piney hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and slight grass. Fits the style of an American Blonde Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is also a slight bitterness. Tastes of floral hops, slight piney hops, sweet malt, hint of pale malt, and slight grass. Overall, good aroma, body, and blend; an especially good blonde.

Pours a slightly hazy golden color with white head. Cereal grains, some light pilsner malt notes, some light grass, and a hint of citrus on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes clean and light.
