Hap this on-tap at The Draught House while spending time in Austin last month.

The appearance was a nice golden tone with a one finger bright white head. Taste has some light hops, belgian yeast, lemon. A very refreshing taste overall, great for the warm weather of Texas. MF is light-medium, finishes bitter, with some oiliness to the texture. All in all, a very good blonde/golden ale.

On tap at the brewery.

The beer pours a golden color with a white head. The aroma is a mix of Belgian yeast with some bread and citrus notes. There is a little bit of grass from the hops in the aroma as well. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of Belgian golden ale characteristics with some earth, grass and citrus notes from the hops. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Creamy hazy gold pour with a nice white head. Smell of fruity, bold hops and comes across more like a pale ale or IPA, despite what the board and website had it listed as. Nice hops flavor and mild bitterness throughout, and sweetens a tad as it warms. A good beer, but not what I was expecting.

Poured from tap into pint glass

A - Light cloudy amber with little white head and no lacing

S - Hops that made me think IPA not blonde

T - Nice light crisp taste with hop notes

M - Smooth going down with light carbonation

D - Not the first thing I'll reach for the next time I am back but worth trying and good for mixing things up
