3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle pours golden in color with a finger of white head which leaves a thin lacing on the glass. Aroma is light grains and floral hops. Taste is light malt sweetness with a light floral hoppy bitterness throughout. Surprising amount of body given its ABV and some good carbonation as well. Overall, this is a pretty good blonde ale and it was a pleasure to have sampled this one.
