3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours light amber with a slight white head. Aroma is a strange mix of toffee and floral. Med minus body. Flavor starts fruity, gets a little mixed hop, and then goes a little wheaty. The pleasures are too subtle for me.

Bland. All I get is the bitterness. Just not enough body, even for a lighter, session beer like this.

Bottle. Orange tan color with dwindling head. Nice citrus hop aroma. Citrus hop notes throughout with crisp grains and smooth finish. Medium light bitterness, especially for a golden blonde ale. A very tasty summer beer.

This beer we rated like it was a Pilsner. Although it wasn't a beer we would go out of our way to purchase it.
