COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A mildly hopped beer with a complex malt character, and a soft creamy head. Soft and fruity with light yeast esters of apricot and orange. It is a refreshing and crisp session beer, with just enough hops to balance and round out the sweetness of the malt. 24 IBU 1.048 OG

Average looking, kinda tan and mostly clear with rising bubbles and not a lot of head or lace. Aroma is typically blonde ale, a little sweet corn and some straw/grassy notes with a light maltiness. Flavor follows suit. Body is light and quite easy to drink, refreshing and just a little slick on the back end. Overall itís enjoyable, perhaps not my personal favorite from Pike, but still tasty.

Had this at Uncle Uliís in Leavenworth. Crystal clear straw color with a nice white head. Floral and sweet notes in the aroma. Very smooth and malty flavor. Very drinkable. Light malty sweetness with mild bitterness and a dry finish. Iím not a huge blonde ale fan but I think this one represents this style well, and is another good beer from this brewery.

Tap at Pike Pub & Brewery, Seattle - 09/11/12. Clear golden with a good sized frothy white head that retains well. Nose is light citrus, pale malt, grain, grass notes. Tastes of citrus, mlats, light caramelised sugars, touch of straw. Medium bodied with light spritzy carbonation leasing to a bitter finish.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours pale orange with great lacing. Aroma has light citrus and a bit of hay. Taste is of light citrus with some sweet caramel underneath. Finishes light. For what it is, solid.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate frothy white head. Maltier than I expected in the nose - some slight toasted notes in there. VERY light on the palate, and would make a great beer on a summer day. Easy drink.

From large bottle. A medium yellow-orange color with some white head. Flavor is mild, slightly citric, mostly tasting of mild hops. A trace of malt on the finish. A nice and easy-drinking summer beer is the best way I can summarize it.

Edit: How anyone can get lavender notes from a simple beer like this is quite beyond me! Perhaps some of the bartenderís cologne wafting over the glass?

Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium orange with a slight brownish hue and an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head, which did allow for some fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a light grain malt, floral hops and a sweaty yeast with notes of citrus (orange), apricot and a mild peppery spice. The taste a tad malty with a mild apricot sweetness from the start but quickly progressed into a hoppy bitter taste with a note of citrus peel and a slight peppery finish. The flavor stuck around for quite a long time with a mildly hoppy fruity taste left to linger. Mouthfeel was light in body and dry in texture with a prickly carbonation. Overall a nice crisp, hoppy Organic Ale that had just enough fruity sweetness to take the harsh bite out of the hoppy citrus peel ending...

Tap @ the brewpub. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are fruits, lavender, malt and hops.
