A-a deep clear gold with a creamy white head that leaves some nice lacing.

S- sweet and bready. A little hint of floral hops.

T- not bad but not overwhelming. Slight notes of bread and no hops. Pretty non-descript.

M-nice and full

O- not bad but missing some of malty robustness that comes with gold/blonde ales.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a translucent straw with a tiny white head. Smells of grain and slight fruit, kind of inviting. Tastes of grain and very slight fruit. Beer is light bodied and goes down smooth, very drinkable. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

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.
