Poured from the can into a pint glass. I was really surprised by this one. I'm usually not a big fan of blondes but this one had a nice little bitterness and sweetness going on, almost like a very light IPA. A nice summer sip.

I'm trying this at Afton Tavern near my bestie house in Concord, NC. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving a nice lace. The scent had faint grain notes. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with nice subtle bitter hop. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a good beer.

Poured from 16 oz tall boy can purchased at the brewery into a Shaker pint.

Crystal clear light Amber with rocky 1-2 finger off white head. Bready malty aromas dominate with light orange zest and herbal, earthy hop note. Bready pale malt flavors are biggest with very light orange and honeysuckle hop character. Light bodied with relatively low carbonation. A flavorful easy drinker with clean pale maltiness leading the way with light bitterness and hop character.

Appearance: Pours clear and honey colored with a fluffy head that leaves a copious amount of lacing

Smell: Bready with honey and a hint of orange citrus

Taste: The bready malt bill dominates the front end, with an orange aspect developing; while the honey adds sweetness throughout, it becomes more apparent after the swallow

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: A refreshing and pleasant blonde ale

Super clear slightly deep gold brew with a pillowy head that fades quickly and remains only barely visible around the edges of the glass. The aroma is sweet malt, honey, orange, flowers and the slightest hint of hay. The taste is sweet and floral with a hint of honey at the end. There is a pleasant hoppy and citrus finish that helps the beer finish cleanly. This is a very drinkable and quite nicely crafted beer.
