Very pale appearance with a white foamy head. Low hop presence, however a strong citrus and fruity flavour. An excellent representation of the golden style. Very refreshing for a warm day. Light bodied and low carbonation allows many to be consumed .

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 it’s enjoyable, perhaps not my personal favorite from Pike, but still tasty.
