Straw gold body, crystal clear. One finger white, fluffy head that dissipates quickly to a faint ring.
Nice hope aroma and flavor. Grassy, lemony with some rind sourness. Nice bready malts.
Medium body with active carbonation and dry finish.

"Packaged 11Jan2018."
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a nice transparent blonde color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a mild pace. Some carbonation bubbles were seen rising at a fair pace. Lace seemed fair as it kept a minute little cap at the top.
The aroma had a nice blend of the Magnum and Centennial hops creating a nice smooth grassy sweet to lemony qualities to slide over some white bread. Ended with a little bit of herbal sweetness.
The flavor mildly blended a grassy bitterness to embed underneath the lemon sweetness. White bread comes back to smooth out the bitterness and keeps the aftertaste fairly low key and semi-malty.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt on par as projected. Bready to bitter grassy sort of finish with a touch of stickiness.
Overall, I'd say this was pretty nice as a blonde ale. Pretty nice use of the hops to keep it to style and yet create a pretty nice flavorful blonde ale worthy to have with it's respected food.

This is a pretty solid blonde. All the good lager like quality with more body, malt and not as crisp. Prettyuch want you would expect and very approachable, especially after some yard work.
