A - Pours a golden honey colorwith a very slight haze. One finger of white head is present with excellent retention

S - Sweet malts upfront with backgroun aromas of apricot and lemon. A light smelling beer

T - Quite tangy at first but a nice sweetness quickly takes over. There are definate tastes of lemon, apricot and other citrus in the background.

M - Light bodied beer that goes down extremely easy. Very slick feeling in the mouth and very smooth

O - Very refreshing. Fits the summer ale category very well. A good summer beer for someone to try the is used to drinking budweiser or bud light. Easy drinknig but still as lots of flavor.

Tastes like a light and tangy extremely pale ale. Perfectly clear golden with a hint of amber. Light and water, refreshing body. Flowers in the nose. A touch of minerals and some browned cracker malty taste. It's blonde and slender with that spicy hoppy hint. Really drinkable and one of the better Blondes I've had.

This has just the right crisp feeling with a nice dose of resiny hops. For all the IPAs hopped to total oblivion, this is a nice reminder that a light hand on excellent hops (they say Amarillo) is still the great way to make beer. It seems like I'm always saying "there are other better light beers." Well, this is one of them. From the 12 oz bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Phoenix.
