Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a half finger white head that dissipates to a thin film with light lacing. Aroma of bready and caramel malt, apple family fruit, lightly vegetal. Flavor is caramel and biscuit malt, apple and pear juice, grassy and lightly citrus hops. Finishes with lingering grassy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with good peppery carbonation. Classic blonde ale base with a bit more hops in the finish than expected, but it all fit together. Pleasant and easy to drink blonde ale.

Pours a clear yellow to amber color. Thin white head on it. Has a light nose of malt and hops to it. Starts with a bready malt then finishes with a slightly bitter citrus hop.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a deep golden amber color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving only a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the beer is strong of some lighter fruits of peach and pear along with some smells of caramel. Other bready aromas and a hint of grass and floral hops are there as well creating a rather pleasant smell overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a nice smooth and sweet bready taste with the sweet being mostly of lighter fruits of apricot, peach and pear. There is a little bit of a brown sugar upfront as well, with this flavor getting slightly stronger as the taste advances. Some orange and grapefruit hop then later develop further along in the taste, and in the end, with just a hint of a floral flavor, one is left with a rather clean and sweet flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the style a little higher carbonation may have been slightly more appropriate, but even said, the thicker body did do a nice job accentuating the mix of fruit and lighter hop , so overall the feel was pretty decent.

Overall – A tasty brew with a great level of flavor and an easy drinking feel. A good session like style brew.
