look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a clear straw yellow with medium head quickly resolving to thin lacing.
Smell is light, sweet malt and a hint of floral notes.
Taste is a good blend of mellow malt and smooth citrus bitterness.
Easy drinking and pleasant.

A: poured from a can into a pint glass, it has a beautiful straw color, clear as a bell and a nice white foam, with no lacing
S: delicate fruitiness. Very lively
T: it's not the most complex, but a session beer shouldn't be I think! Definitely getting citrus. Extremely refreshing and crisp
M: very smooth, not too sharp from the carbonation. a light to medium body
O: judging it on what it is I think this is a great standby beer, especially in warmer temps. I don't consider myself a huge fan of blondes but this is doing it for me.

12 oz can with a 2/2/2018 FL (Florida canning?) date stamp on the bottom.
Clear pale golden body with a good white head. Minimal lacing.
Grains, hops and alcohol in the nose in about equal measure.
The flavor follows excepting the alcohol. Good balance. Mild and light yet with some lingering hoppy and bready notes.
Light body and medium carbonation.

Pours a clear light straw color with a healthy head. The nose is slightly herbal. There is a mild sweetness upfront follwed by a decent hoppiness for the style.

On tap.

A - Medium gold colored pour with thick white lacing and lots of active carbonation.

S - Light aroma. Citrus, crisp honey malt, delicate graham cracker.

T - Some earthiness, crackery honey malt, grainy, and ends with a very mild earthy citrus bitterness.

M - Big medium body.

O - Not much personality here.

This is exactly as advertised. It's an everyday type beer that you can drink indoors, outdoors, when it's hot , cold. After a hike or bike ride, after work, at a ballgame.
It's a good everyday beer that comes in cans, reasonably priced, and is an upgrade from grabbing a case of Yuengling!

Pours clear, straw yellow in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is grass, grains of paradise, and a touch of pear. Light bodied, sweet, and high carbonation. Makes for a super-crushable clean lager. Would get this again.

L: straw color, lots of large bubbles, filtered. No head.

S: lightly sweet, floral, hay. Not pungent.

T: mellow, malt, lightly sweet, low bitterness, lightly hopped. Not nuanced.

F: very light, smooth, medium carbonation. Not filling.

Happy to be the first to review this, as the grocery store put this out two days before the official release date. Lucky me!

Overall: very nice blonde ale. It's not overpowering or overly complex, which will pair well with lighter meals. Easy to drink, making it a "go-to" beverage -- and I think this is what Southern Tier was trying to accomplish. The straw color is nice, and it just looks appetizing.

I would have liked to see some head on it. The feel could be a little more creamy too, as I find it a tad rough with the carbonation burn.

For what it is, a blonde ale, it is a nice beer. Will buy again.
