Appearance: Pours a clear golden with a modest head that leaves just a few dots behind

Smell: Slightly grainy with a hint of citrusy hops

Taste: A hint of bread up front with a developing grainy aspect; in the middle, a hint of citrus balances the malt flavors; surprisingly peppery on the finish

Overall: For a Blonde, this is a tasty beer and would be a treat on a hot Summer day

Saw this over the years but never tried it. Got sick of IPAs and stouts so I saw it at a bar and tried it.

Appearance: Pours a yellow filtered lager-ish color. Looks like the perfect refreshing summer beer.

Smell: Smells of sweet malts, grains, and a floral flowery scent.

Taste - Taste is really good. Mirrors the nose - really sweet tasting and floral. Crisp and refreshing.

Mouthfeel: LIght mouthfeel.

Overall: Really good beer. Surprised with this one. I think this is my first blonde. My favorite summer beer and one of my favorite beers.

Part of a pick your own sixer from the market. It is still summer just barely, so lets give it a whirl. Popping the top I get a very earthy dandelion like hoppiness. Pouring into my SAPP this brew is a bright yellow with a big bubble white creamy top head. On the taste the hoppiness prevails up front, not bitter but very bright and sharp with a thin maltiness behind it that doesn't diminish the sharpness of the hops. A different hop belt very yerba like and sweet yet strong. Not really my kind of flavor.
