2.73/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 16 oz can into a tulip glass.

Pours a cloudy light copper color with 2 fingers of bright white head. The head leaves some splotchy lacing as it settles into a thin ring.

The aroma brings notes of grapefruit and orange, followed by plenty of biscuity malt. Not much going on here.

The flavor is very sweet and malty with some citrusy hops on the finish. Nothing else of note. Very "meh".

The feel is light bodied with moderate carbonation. Subtly crisp with a dry finish. Bitterness lingers for a bit too long.

Overall, a pretty weak blonde ale that just doesn't bring anything to the table. It's bland and boring and everything is muted. Not terrible, but not worth your time.

3.6/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip shaped pint glass: color is a bit dark for a blonde, near copper color, brighter white head that presents about 1/2 inch thick.

Smell is pleasant - biscuit malt, sharper crisp hop notes with herbal and earth notes.

Taste is similar with more biscuity and bready malt, a bit sweeter malt note in the middle with crisp, bright hops on the finish.

Mouthfeel is moderately strong carbonation, quite biting and then dry finish - approaching lager status. A strong crisp presence on the tongue lingers well after.

Overall a brew that might be miscategorized in terms of how it presents to me but it has blonde ale components and great biscuity presence with a slightly sharp, crisp finish.
