3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a modest white head that settles leaving some thin spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is light caramel with some floral and citrus hop notes. Taste is light caramel malt sweetness with some herbal and citrus hop bitterness. This is one of the better blond ales I have tried from the USA, very pleasing and balanced flavors.

On tap at Deschutes Brewpub. Pours almost clear amber with a foamy white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, orange peel, English malts. Flavour is bitter, English malts, orange peel, and is quite herbal. Not the most exciting beer out there, but a decent example of this style.

Perplexed by the low ratings. A very nice crisp amber ale. Nice palate, nice flavor. Would make a great beer for hot summer days.
