COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on a Pre-Prohibition Lager Recipe, this is a perfect Summer Session Beer. Very light, yet surprisingly complex. Vanguard hops lend a slightly spicy, herbal finish.

Formerly known as Summer Blond.

Solid blonde through and through. Perhaps more hoppy than most. I’m overlooking the slightly less flavorness, if you will, due to the incredibly low ABV. Overall, however, very well balanced.

22 oz bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small white head and spotty lacing. Aroma is slight sourness like a lemon yogurt, bananas, wheat, dusty, white bread. Taste is slight banana, a bit of sourness but not as much as anticipated from aroma, doughy grain, biscuit, wheat, slight citric bitterness. Light body, full fizzy carbonation, finishes mostly dry. Perhaps a bit infected but it kinda somehow works with the style.

luttonm (2192) - Belgrade, SERBIA - FEB 1, 2014
Draft at Mountlake Terrace brewpub. Hazier than the golden ale. Super pale ale, soft body but still a sweet hop note, however light. Not terrible.

Total Wine in Pembroke Pines, Fl. Nothing remarkable , Yes, a working in the yard ale. Refreshing, but then again so is Miller Light. Does have a funky yeast aroma.

Bottle from Total Wine in Boca Raton, FL. At home in pilsner glass. Yellowish haze pour with thin head. Slight lacing. Aroma is fairly light with little citrus and flowers along with some grains/cereal. Taste is light and smooth with light citrus, floral notes and a slight yeasty funk. Finish is dry and not very crisp. Light carbonation. Fairly meh.

fiulijn (14403) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Pale blond color. Aroma and flavor are very light; the mouthfeel is expectedly dry; ordinary bitterness; it doesn’t have malt or hop qualities.
Ale or Lager, this is uninteresting.
