3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
rocky 2 finger head... leaves surprising amounts of lace and has great retention.. the brew is slightly hazy gold.
grainy pale malts make up the bulk of the nose.. polished with a bright citric hoppiness... I am enjoying this one... I normally donít care for "blondes".
again alot of clean pale malts with touches of biscuit.. nice citrus hoppiness is bigger than most others that Iíve tried in the style.. finish is clean with an interesting and pleasant/yet unexpected "earthy" component.. a little bit of floral hoppiness is also present.. The body is light/medium for the style and carbonation is smooth small bubble.. very inviting.
I would compare this with a lite APA with a bigger yet some how dryer pale malt profile.

Pours a slight hazy golden copper color with a medium off white creamy head that left lacing rings around the glass. The aroma is mild but smells of citrus, lightly roasted malts, and pine. The taste is very similar to the aroma but a little lighter and milder than I was expecting. As it warms the pine becomes more pronounced and adds bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle pours with a nearly clear pure gold body that supports a near white head. The aroma offers up a blend of cracker like malts, floral hops and a dash of lime hard candy. The taste begins pretty nice as the malts and sort of cracker like sensation are met by an equal level of hop bitterness that seems floral and a bit spicy and grassy and lime like. The bitter citrus hop character builds to a moderate level to midway and then maintains that into the finish. Pretty nice pale.
