Flavor of the Season INDEED. This american Blonde Ale is quite refreshening after an afternoon of grueling lawn mowing. Its golden amber color signifies the refreshment of youth, like that of a child's first alcoholic beverage. But the burliness of the hops reminds you that this beer is not for a child but for a man of great wisdom. With a minute hint of citrus, heaping amount of hops, and arouma that is suited for the gods, one would be a fool not to consume.
