This refreshing, balanced flavor of this Blonde Lager is the perfect way to welcome summer. Smooth, medium bodied and just enough Simcoe hops to quench any thirst.

Pours pale gold. Lightly bready with some citrusy sweetness. A small amount of hops for body.

Tap at JH - Hazy orange thin white head. Light crackery grains. Light caramel malty. Nice carbonation. Fruity apples, soft bodied, yeasty spice. Decent for light, warm weather drinking.

Pale golden beer, thin white head. Aroma is lightly bready with pale two row cereal-like aroma. Not much in the way of hop character... just a soft bit of bittering to balance it. Sort of an indistinct fruitiness. Meh.

Tap. Aroma of light citrus, very sweet strawberry, very slight hops. Flavor of wheat/grains, sweet malt, minimal hops, not much fruitiness left. Needs more hops for me. A bit weak.

I wasn’t really sure how to categorize this beer, because it is only listed as a "blonde lager", but hopefully I have chosen correctly. On tap at John Harvards. Pours a light gold with a very small white head. Aroma of stale wheat. Flavor of the same, quite bland. No real hop presence. More refreshing than some lagers perhaps, but this was somewhat of a letdown as I was exoecting it to be a little fruiter, more spritzy. In any case, I’d bypass this one if you’re at JH. Probably one of the worst of their beers I’ve had.
