Appears a pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of hops, yeast, and some spice. Very light on the taste, with a citrus hint. Feels a little thin. Overall a mediocre beer. Drinkable, but not sure I would order again.

Iā€™m drinking this from a craft beer glass 2 weeks after its best by date. L: It pours gold with a very slight haze under a 1ā€ sudsy off-white foam collar that recedes at a moderate rate. S: Moderately low aroma of biscuit, light fruit, earthy, herbal hops character. T: Biscuit, light fruit, a touch melon and tropical fruit, traces of citrus, and a mildly bitter hop accent. F: Crisp, average carbonation, medium light body. O: A respectable, refreshing drink.

Pours a slightly hazy amber, thin soapy white head, dots of lace down the glass. Smell: pale malt sweetness, mildly spicy, honey and husky notes. Taste: cereal grains, spicy, slightly earthy with a lemony note. Light bodied, crisp finish. Gluten free, which is cool. Pretty decent.

4/18/15 (Bottle) - Bright golden pour, generous head, decent carbonation. Grass and lemon scent pleasant. Taste a nice balance of hops and malt, smooth going down. Good offering.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A - Clear golden straw in color with significant carbonation. Head is white, tall, frothy, and slow to dissipate. Head is retained as a thin froth. 4/5

S - Cereal and fresh baked white bread. Possibly a hint of corn. Grassy hops are very prevalent. 3.75/5

T - Toasted caramel malt is on the front with bitter grassy hops on the back end. Some tartness in the middle (green apple-esque). Bitterness lingers quite long. 3.25/5

M - Light and crisp with a drying astringency on the finish. Not quite as carbonated as expected based on appearance. 3/5

O - More bitter than any other blonde that I have ever had but also more full of flavor than any other blonde that I have had up until this point in time. Enjoyable but could have enjoyed even better if bitterness did not linger quite so long. Well hopped blonde but would like to have tasted more balance to the back end bitterness. Good summery beer nonetheless. 3.25/5

Poured from 12 oz bottle dated best by 6/23/2015.

A: Clear sunshine yellow with 1ā€“2 finger white head. Decent retention and lacing.

S: Biscuits, bread, and a slight grassy funk.

T: Biscuit malts with some earthy notes. Some faint spices lingering around in the back.

M: Medium body with average carbonation. Very easy drinking. A nice summertime choice.

O: Enjoyable brew. Not a style that I normally frequent, but a nice departure.
