Very Good
Notes: Formerly On Top Blonde

Sweet as a summer lover, refreshing as a dip in the pool: Eternal Summer is our bodacious blonde ale made with crisp pilsner malt and a touch of citrusy hops. This fresh, crushable beer has summer vibes written all over it.

my first "basic" beer from these guys, the only others i have had have been some of their more rare and special, so nice to see them be able to cover the bases like this. a fine, easy drinking, pilsener colored brew that refreshes and satisfies in a way so few blonde ales do. crystal clear color, radiant in the sunlight, this one screams day drinking. its got a nice clean aroma of pale barley and grassy hops, and the taste matches. a little more body than most, which i really appreciate, and sweet for a second, but its gone by the finish, which is borderline lager crisp. i like its heft, and would not get bored drinking from a keg of this, its delicious, refreshing, and just different enough to stand out to me. part of me might be biased, i went into it expecting to love it, and did, just because of the prestige these guys carry, but its awfully good for such a straight ahead brew. i could gladly drink ten of these, golf course beer, vacation beer, just real solid all around.

Very solid, sessionable, light hop flavor. Perfect for the boat, beach, hurricane parties. Florida summers are bearable because of this beer.

Had this on draft at Altamonte Springs World of Beer on 12/16/14.

This pretty much is a basic blonde ale. I enjoyed it a little bit more than I thought I would. Would have absolutely no issue ordering this again in the future. I love Funky Buddha's beer. 3.5-4 stars.
