Looks blonde alright. Good head, moderate lacing. Slightly sweet but largely pilsner/blonde ale aroma. The taste is somewhat sweet, low on hops but with a lingering bitterness. Refreshing and not cloying at all. Light and moderately sharp mouthfeel. Quite drinkable. Good to see that it's under 5% ABV.

Got in trade with jeffkrenner - thanks! Poured from a 12oz bottle with no dates by notches on label. The color was a slightly cloudly golden yellow. It had a couple fingers of white head that slowly settled to a constant film. Decent lacing. The smell was typical pilsener - wet grass clippings and noble hops. The taste was good but pils is not one of my favorite styles. Not bad but they have an aftertaste that is very off-putting. Overall a decent beer and worth trying if you can easily get your hands on. (3.5, RB, T, O)
