Pours a blonde color with a one-finger head into my glass. Very much a blonde ale.

Light and refreshing with a limited hop bite (accurate for the style).

Ditto for the taste. Simple, sweet malt with a touch of hops. Nothing more, nothing less. Will appeal to those used to light lagers.

Lingering flavors are nothing out of the usual.

Worth a shot if you're not big on microbrews.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Pale yellow, clear, with a small white head, so-so retention and modest lace.

Aroma: Light graininess, faint grassy hops, lemon, sweet malt.

Taste: Thin and slightly lemony, touch of sweeter malty caramel flavor, reserved citrus and grassy hoppiness mostly noticeable in the finish. Subtle underlying bitterness. A little bland overall.

Mouthfeel: On the thinner side with good carbonation. Crisp and clean, but there’s something a little lacking here that keeps it from being truly quenching.

Overall: An easy drinking but ultimately forgettable blonde.
