This is a very tasty Golden Ale, light color, malty smoothness, nice carbonation.

Very good for a blonde ale, the yeast and malt flavor is excellent. The hop additions are barely noticeable, but I love the big malty flavor of this. Rarely does a light colored beer taste this big. It does taste a bit sour, but the malty sweetness is more than enough to balance.

Pours a clear bright yellow color into a typical pint with plenty of frothy bright head. Carbonation is slight. Smell is pilsner like. Initial taste is also pilsner like but turns sweet at the end with a hint of spice. Overall, I think that this is a very drinkable, enjoyable brew that I hope to enjoy throughout summer.
