3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium light gold with a foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma has a nice light malty sweetness but on the lower end of the low to moderate fruitiness that is characteristic of the style. No diacetyl or phenolic aromas. Good carbonation and mouthfeel with a little bitterness on the back end. The hops are refreshing and definitely on the bitter side of the hop to malt balance at first but mellows as you drink then you get the floral/resin flavor of the german hops. The beer finishes dry and is a great summer beer, which is what it is marketed as, and I think is a good example of a blonde ale, after the bitterness coats your mouth the malts actually do come through with a malty mixture of pale base that is bready and a little caramel to add some complexity.

Bottle poured a clear golden with a large white head and minimal lacing. Aroma includes grapefruit, grass, and a hint of buttermilk biscuit. Taste is lemon and peach upfront with a grassy crisp finish. Very drinkable beer that lives up to its name.

Grows on you. Hops stand out. It took a couple to realize how light it is while the hops take over.

12oz bottle in Seattle. Pale gold-yellow ale, Herb-hop nose, pale. Medium bodied, smooth ale with lots of lighter herb malting. Coriander flavor even, but fresh and green, lemony. Very nice drinker.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden yellow. Nose is full of citrus. Tastes more like an IPA to my buds, nice bitterness and hoppiness. Nice finish, I personally would not call this a summer thirst quencher.........drinks easily but a summer quencher ? Regardless, not bad, Quaff Score 6 / 10

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 On tap at Mellow Mushroom. Clear, pale yellow color. Not a bug head. Immediate hop smell, but then clear grapefruit. Hoppy, smooth taste. Nice summer beer, but stayed too floral through the drinking process. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fantastic hops punch, yet surprisingly light on the pallet. Not too much alcohol, perfect for hot days. Just might be my new favorite.
