Clean and steril aroma with light gold appearance. This tastes like your typical gold ale, very light. Same old.

On tap: The aroma consists of light cereal/grainy notes with a touch of honey. It’s a transparent gold with a small white head that quickly fades to a thin film. There is a solid sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of honey. The finish has light grain, cereal, grass, and a hint of lemon peel. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
The appearance has a large white head and a clear golden color, and the aroma blends rich yet light malts and a light but grassy hop note. The taste is mildly sour, slightly bitter and a touch sweet, and the maltiness is apparant throughout this beer. The palate fuses an average carbonation, slick texture, medium-heavy body, and a lightly malty finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance has a light golden yet clear yellow body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dissipates leaving some slightly thick clingy lacing that spiderwebs a bit.
The smell has a mostly sweet maltiness goin’ on with a light corn in the background.
The taste is sweet all the way through the malts, corn and adding a bit of breadiness. There is a corn aftertaste with sweet finish.
On the palate, its about a light, and is sessionable. Carbonation is accurate for the style and is good for me.
Overall, this is a good American Blonde Ale, most likely better with food with a decent refreshing aspect to it.

May rate low by others but this is a golden ale and appropriate for the style.
Aroma is mild American hops and caramel malts.
Flavor is mild but with biscuity, caramel flavors and mild hop bitterness.
Overall it is an easy drinking craft ale targeted towards entry level consumers but is still respectable for true craft beer aficionados.
