Drinking summer in a glass in December may have brought the numbers down somewhat.....an easy drinking, pale colored uncomplicated ale. Would be perfect by the water in the summer- or post-surf. Lots of citrus with a hint of ginger. Not overly hoppy- 28 IBU. Refreshing.

Crystal clear, light golden body with orange highlights. Finger or so of sticky white head that leaves significant lacing. Drains to a creamy skim. Mild yeast, light citrus hops and malts in the nose. Some grassy notes. Light bodied, mildly hoppy. Pleasant, easy to drink, doesn’t fatigue the palate.

I know this is an American blonde but I swear I got a feeling of a belgian pale from it. Light yellow-orange in color, decent head. Smells like orange a little. The flavor had a bit of citrus and peach but just a tiny bit and then I tasted spice (I swear). This wasn;t bad but I did not find it as refreshing as some of the other reviewers here and I most likely won;t revisit this.

Pours a light golden color with a finger sized pure white head. Nose is citrus and spices. Light to medium modied and fairly creamy on the palate, the taste is citrus, spices and just a little zing of hops on the finish. Light and refreshing - a nice summer beer that pairs well with chicken salad on a croissant.
