look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a brilliant deep golden with a frothy half inch cream head that dissipates slowly, leaving sheets of lacing.

Toasted grain, bready malt, and sweet caramel form the aroma, with light citrus notes in the background.

Flavor is sweet, with bready caramel malt throughout. There's a hit of citrus mid palate, accompanied by grain. The finish is fairly dry, but not bitter.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and some underlying astringency.

Far more bready than anticipated. Tangy flavor is offputting.

This is a decent beer, a simple bland ale that is rather like a basic, but decent, pale lager.

Dark gold, it has a medium white head soon thinning to foamy ring.

Aroma is nice grain, hay, hint of honeyed bread, overripe apples. It's fairly simple but good.

Taste is not as good, being lightly sweet faint grain, faint grassy-peppery bitterness, faint honey with biscuit finish. It ends up rather simple and rough.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear and pale orange in color with a medium sized off white head. Darker than I'd expect for a Blonde...

S: Aromas of sweet malt, white bread dough, some spice, apples and peaches. Straight forward, simple, and to the point. Nicely balanced.

T: Flavors are very similar. Fruity and brightly hopped with sweet doughy malts. Some tart lemon in the mix.

M: Slick, well carbonated, and dry through the finish. Light body.

O: This appears to be solid across the board. A decent, fairly simple, refreshing summer beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

pours a clear yellow/light amber tone with a finger of off-white foamy head that soon dissipates into a thin collar around the glass; spotty lacing.

nose is pretty tame... i get subdued notes of breadiness and floral hops. flavor opens with a bready/biscuity presence which is followed by some mild hop characters... clean, crisp finish. again, fairly muted all around; by and large an unexiting, inoffensive beer.

light/medium-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. 'average' i think suits this entry across the board; the sort of light, easy drinking beer one might be inclined to session at the beach. even at that, i think i'd be inclined to look elsewhere.
