Good
Notes: The only way to describe this beer is Infinitely Drinkable. This is smooth liquid refreshment with a hint of Centennial hops for fruity notes and low bitterness for an easy finish. Available on draught and in 8 packs of 12oz cans, yep that’s right 8 cans, because when a beer is Infinitely Drinkable, six just isn’t enough!

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!

12 ounce can, canned on 5/23/19, got this from my buddy Denis last week. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear gold color with about an inch white head. Head retention and lacing are both good. The brew smells mostly like bready/grainy malt, along with some light floral and grassy hops. I think the taste is pretty much like the aroma, but there's also some honey and vegetal/corn flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's a bit slick and easy enough to drink. I don't know, this isn't bad but there just seems to be something missing with this one. Really doesn't seem to be a much of a step up from a typical macro brew. I wouldn't turn one of these down, but I also wouldn't make it a point to seek it out either. Still, worth a try if you can get a single somewhere.

Thoroughly enjoyable very light and refreshing brew. I agree with other reviewers this tastes like a hoppy Pilsner. Blind tasting I might think Helles too. Just doesn’t taste like a Blonde. Nice lacing, creamy mouth feel, biscuit, lemon, tart apple. Could drink many

Pours a clear straw yellow with a white head. Aroma is biscuits and corn. Flavor follows the nose and is slightly sweet up front with no real hop bitterness in the finish. Feel is crisp, light and well carbonated. Overall a little boring, but that's almost to be expected at 4.8% ABV.

Lets start with I'm a Southern Tier man, but this didn't rank in the top, but still a good brew.
It pours a nice yellow straw color with a nice pillow of white foam, and decent lacing.
As for aroma it falls a little short of an adventure to nose, but still a pleasant fill of malt & hops in a nice blended bouquet.
The taste seems to fall short of the aroma projected...they come to be a little on the "lite" side...hint hint. It is a very drinkable beer, but was wanting a little bit more adventure for the palate. Since I'm very fond of Southern.
As for the feel...it follows taste lite and drinkable. Will try again, and see if things change.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a "nonic" pint glass; bottled by March 27, 2019.
A: Pours a slightly hazy, golden yellow color, a white, one finger head, rim retention, and spotty lacing.
S: Slightly floral. Aromas cracker, biscuit, honeysuckle, grasses and grains. Very nice nose on this.
T: Semisweet. Palate follows the nose; floral elements of rose water and hyacinth. Light bitterness, but enough to impart character and a crisp, refreshing finish.
M: Light to medium bodied with light, but steady carbonation overall. Refreshing.
O: Really a nicely constructed, American Blonde Ale. This would work as a refreshing, go-to ale.
