Our lightest beer both in color and ABV%, we made this beer to satisfy the thirst of those who might be new to full flavored beer as a step to the rest of our beer lineup. Blond in color, crisp in body and finish, the flavor is mild malt character and a nice hop presence throughout. Very light in mouth feel and a brisk carbonation. A great beer for grilled and spicy foods!

an ok blonde as expected, but nothing to make it stand out or excite. Grainy, slightly sweet with a touch of hop bite. Light body and flavor.

Homer321 (4327) - Melboring, Florida, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Draft at brewery. Pale pale yellow. Lighter than cider if possible. Nose is slightly hay and not really anything else. Very blonde and boring without much of anything but a bit of grain. Nothing wrong but nothing desirable.

HighWine (959) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - MAY 19, 2011
Tap at the brewery. A hazy straw colored pour that looks more like a wit. Aroma is slightly malty with hop overtones. The taste is surprisingly bitter. If blindfolded I would have guessed an ESB without as much body. Unique representation of the style.
