2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Good starting head that leaves some spotty lace. Straw is the color of the liquid with a touch of haze.
Mild, but pleasant blend of the classic pale malts and flowery hop.
With the lightest of pale malts, there is a slight sourness to the initial sip. The carbonation is high--high enough to bubble over the bottle. It cuts through the body making this beer overly spritzy. Overall, this is a pleasant and easy-to-consume lighter, but flavorable, beer.

Pretty good floral hop aroma for a blonde. Wow, what a great surprise! Seems more like a pale ale almost to me, but is excellent nonetheless. Can a blonde ale be my favorite from a brewery??

[Bottle] Pours a clear golden color with some white head. Aroma of light malts and grass. Mellow fruity taste. Some biscuit flavors in there as well. A crisp light hop finish. Average carbonation and mouthfeel. Seems like a pretty well made beer without any glaring flaws.

Tap at RNH. Deep golden beer. Lightly hazy with a thin white head. The aromais lightly herbal and loaded with crisp fresh pale malt. Very toasty and fresh with a light wheaty tartness. I’m kind of surprised at how expressive the malts are in here. Low bitterness, just a light herbal kick on the back. A surprisingly tasty summertime brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is a bit weak and watery but what is there is good stuff. It is malty with bread, corn, yeast, and grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a small head. The flavor is like the aroma with a bread like finish. The palate is smooth. Overall a good session beer that is hurt by being watery.

brings a common ground for a blond but does nothing to excel the style. standard all the way with flavors of mild malts and a touch of honey and fruity hops.
