3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. This blonde ale pours a light gold color. Small medium sized head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of pears. A medium bodied blonde ale. Malts are fruity and sweet, touch of apricots and pears. Hops are mild but there is a definite bitterness here. Not very sweet for a blonde ale, and it has a very nice crisp dry finish. Interesting beer. A blond ale that will NOT insult a beer geek, Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Very subtel nose with but a slight hop note and a slightly honeyed malt profile. Clean soft and subdued on the palate. Notes of pear, mango and kiwi with a very mild hop bitterness. Very dry signature RR finish. Nice beer to start the session.
