3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light haze but not too bad. Medium hop aroma with subtle malt in the nose as well. Hoppier than expected for a blonde but good mouthfeel otherwise. Nice malty flavor once the hops fade.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a hazy orange color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head has a lighter level of retention, fading rather quickly to leave a little bit of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the beer is big of wheat and grain with a decent showing of a yeasty aroma. Other lighter notes of an orange citrus and some lemon are there as well, with just a hint of grass and coriander rounding it all out.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit malt taste mixed with some wheat notes. Along with these flavors are some other tastes of a lighter orange and tangerine sweetness with a hint of caramel and banana mixed within. The citrus grows stronger as the flavor advances with the sweet gaining a little bit of strength, but with most of the new citrus coming in the form of a grapefruit and lemon flavor. Other yeasty flavors are also present more from the middle of the taste with them brining a hint of a coriander spice. In the end with the transitions in the taste that occur, one is left with a moderately sweet, but nicely bittered and balanced blond taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower to average side. For the thicker biscuit and yeasty tastes the feel is spot one, although for the citrus a bit more carbonation and thinner body may have made for a more refreshing feel overall. All in all the feel was pretty good overall.
Overall – A nice easy drinking blond with a good balance. Quite tasty.
