On tap at PDX pub. Described as a "Golden Ale", but that option wasn't available here, so closest I could come was Blonde. It was not done with Belgian yeast in case you're wondering.

Nice polished copper with a rim of white foam. Smells of light, sweet English malts and a slightly tea like hop character. Flavor is mildly bitter with a good hit of amber malts. Medium bodied with lower carb and slick finish. This reminded me of a lighter, but fuller flavored Amber, not a Golden or Blonde Ale, but hey whatever. I really dug this one.

On tap at the brewpub on 8.2.12

A - Pours a dark orange with a slim white head that fades quickly.

S - Not much, but some citrus and sweets malts.

T - Very citrus forward. A good malty backbone.

D - Very citrusy. Good carb and medium body.

O - Citrusy. Good enough?
