COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp and refreshing Blonde/Pale Ale hybrid this beer has a light body and a citrusy grapefruit aroma, the result of an abundant amount of dry-hopping. The Bright Ale is sessionable and approachable and is our perfect year round offering for whenever you feel like living in the moment.

Can. A hazy, golden beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is quite citrusy and peachy, with a soft malty fruity touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, with peaches, some piney and citrus peel-ish notes and a touch of pale malts. It’s medium bodied, soft and semi-dry on the palate. Semi-long citrusy, bitter finish with a touch of peaches. Quite nice this one, and very refreshing. 150613

Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, peach and orange. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter with a long peach and orange finish. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Location: Draft at the brewery, 4/18/15

Aroma: This has a clean aroma of light floral hops, as well as some mild citrus.
Appearance: It pours a clear golden color with a thick frothy white head and some average lace.
Flavor: It has a pretty decent flavor, clean and light, but still pretty decent.
Palate: It has a fairly light body, with a soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish.
Overall Impression: The brewery calls this a Blonde Ale, not an APA (and I would tend to agree). I’m not sure why it is an APA on here. Anyway, this is a decent enough beer. A good entry craft offering for those new too craft, but not a particularly exciting beer.

Nice floral citrus hop aroma with a light maltiness. Cloudy yeasty appearance. Taste is light and refreshing but with descent body for a lighter beer. Citrus/ floral hops are well balanced with the malt. Not bad at all. A nice refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a can into a snifter. Light gold with a solid head. Aroma and flavor of citrus hops, lemongrass, pale biscuity malt. Lively, medium + carbonation. Nice mellow lingering aftertaste. A really nice light, sessionable craft beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz can. Looks golden. Aroma of floral hops, pale and light caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average to lighter texture. A pretty boring beer.

Can freshly dropped off according to their Facebook page. Glad to support a local! Pour has a clean golden color and a thin coating of white head that slowly fizzled off. Aroma has light dry hops, citrus, and pale malts. Mouth feel is good and the carbonation medium low. Flavor has a light pale malted base, dry hops, citrus, and a touch of bitterness into the finish. This is extraordinarily drinkable and the 5.2% level is perfect session strength. Just wish they dated the cans,

Boring, tasteless, uninteresting. It’s basically a craft Bud Light. I understand they’re trying to brew a light beer, but it can still have some flavor profile.
