12 ounce can - The Nest at Kennesaw, Georgia.

Canned 03/08/17.

Appearance: Pours a darkish, fairly opaque (some suspended floaties), gold body with a collapsing, white head.

Smell: Lightly sweet-scented, a bit bready and a touch of gently toasted grain. Some slender fruity esters as well as some lightly citrusy hops.

Taste: A sweetish taste of golden barley, lightly bread with a hint of grain. Slight fruitiness, also some citrus (lemon). Modest bitterness. Lightly drying, near crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Just a hair over medium carbonation.

Overall: Basic but sufficient blonde ale.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, biscuits, some fruits. Taste is malts, bready, a touch of fruit, highly drinkable. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very refreshing and sessionable beer.

Poured from 12oz can into a tulip.

Appearance: light golden hue with a moderate haze and a light effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam. Not bad!

Smell: lightly grainy aroma with a little bit of sweetness and fruitiness to it. Not bad for the style.

Taste: quite malty with a bit of sweetness, fruitiness and graininess. Quite well balanced, actually. Not much in the way of hops, but nice nonetheless.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: a drinkable and quite tasty example of the style. It's a hard style to get right, and this one errs on the side of more flavor and less crispness. I like it, though.

Taste is sweet, honey, toasted malt, with light grass. Super clean, nice, and light--a bit on the sweet side. This is very good for the style. Overall, I would get a six pack of this, especially if I wanted a light sessionable beer. It certainly keeps me curious about the brewery.

Pours a cloudy orangish yellowish color with white head. Cereal grains, malt, and some grass on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with more cereal grain and a little sweetness.

Fresh can direct from the brewery.

Gorgeous orange body but retention and lacing are pretty ordinary. Crisp orange flavor; taste is light but refreshing and inviting. Perfect for summer drinking.

Suzy "B" has a thick, foamy, slightly off-white head, a hazy, bubbly, gold appearance, and a bit of splotchy lacing left behind. The aroma is of faint bread, and the flavor is of faint bread, hop oil, and citrus fruit. Mouthfeel is mostly watery, and Suzy B finishes easy going and dull.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Grainy, Dry, Refreshing, Grassy

This is not your typical Blonde Ale, a little bit rough around the edges yet still clean at the same time. Grainy and slightly bitter with a refreshing quality that makes us come back for more. No problem crushing these tallboys, great job SoPro!
