Meh. It may just be because I don't care for blonde ales, so take this with a grain of salt. It was fine. Decent mouthfeel and an ok flavor profile, but not much going on with this one.

Had it from a bottle into a tall Pilsner glass with some nice spicy Indian food. Nice and light and slightly sweet. Smell was herbal and sweet. Nice head and lacing. Enjoyed it!

Unknown bottle date

Pours yellowish, light gold. Lively carbonation.

Grassy nose and some floral notes.

Hints of lemon on the taste with continued grassy, formal hops. Low bitterness. A touch of cream sweetness, vanilla. Some pepper.

Pretty light bodied but does carry some creaminess

It's an ok low ABV beer. Nice combo of flavors and easy drinking.
