Super fresh sampler pack these babies are best by 3/2012...this one pours a brilliant bright clear golden hue with a full thicket of egg shell white head. Frothing head dwindles down leaving layers of intricate lacing. Layers of cereal grains, light fruit notes, and floral hops come across my nares a very pleasant herbal grassiness as well. A perfect clean drinking gold ale really, nothing else to add other than damn it's refreshing and it's good cold and doesn't hurt to let it warm up. This is like the most solid homebrew gone pro brewer beer ever, simple flavorful and nails the style guidelines. A true session ale at 4.5% abv packs a nice amount of flavor into a poundable format, I've never seen this stuff outside of the sampler packs. Lighter bodied ale with ample sturdy carbonation really packs in the flavor and definitely pulls off an enjoyable beer in a style that most beer geeks don't give much attention to.

A - Of course golden in color very bright yellow, bubbly with a 1/2 inch of sticky white head. Good carbonation bubbles throughout.
S - Smells good for a blonde decent hops and bready with sweeter malts.
T - One of the better blondes I had. Decent floral hop profile, sweet malts, and a crisp bready finish.
M - Light to medium bodied, easy to chug and session able.

Overall a really easy going summer ale that has just enough flavor to keep it interesting. Worth picking up as a single or even a six pack.

Had on tap. Classic golden body with a white head. The nose really doesn't give you much: grains, slight lemon, and blonde malt. The taste is still monotone, but the depth is actually underrated in my opinion, good grains, malts, some black pepper, some yeast, and earthiness with a dash of lemon zest and herbs. Actually enjoyed a good bit, feel though smacks of macro lager but then warms and thickens with grains well. Really not that bad

Poured a hazy orange gold color with about a finger and a half worth of white head and leaves a nice heavy lace. Smells of some malt, getting some crackers, and some citrus. Taste is a bit bready with citrus. Feel is ok, beer is ok.
