Smooth. Nice feel on the tongue. Refreshing and perfect with a grilled steak.

Got a four pack from the brewery in Hyannis, Cape Cod. The tasting there was pretty good but the can was very average.

Drank directly from the 16 ounce can, but the sample at the brewery poured a 1 finger head, with a golden color and very clear. Virtually no hop character, either aroma or flavor. Decent malty taste and not much body. Balanced bitterness.

Overall, more like an upscale version of a Budweiser or Miller beer.

Overall, a quality blonde ale. It tasted like a cleaner version of a High Life to me, and I really like High Life. I've rated it faithfully to my enjoyment of it, but this comes with the practical caveat of, if I can get a comparable beer for a lot cheaper, I'm not sure why I would go the craft beer route for this sort of thing.

Poured from a pint glass from the growler I picked up at the brewery. Starts with a thin head and quickly dissipates, nice clear and golden color. Slightly citrus smell, while overall it's not my preference it is what I'd expect from this style beer. Light, crisp taste and easy to drink. A solid blonde.
