3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very approachable and enjoyable light ale. Clear gold with a thin white head. The nose is quite hop-forward. The palate is light to medium bodied, with grains and hints of lemon. Clipped finish, but a fresh mouthfeel.

Bottle. It pours a very clear yellow color with a small white head. The aroma is very grainy/bready with some strong notes of grass and earthy hops. The flavor is a wonderful balance of light bready malts and spicy, grassy hops. There are some more citrusy and piney accents before a dry crisp finish. A really nice crisp summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a decent golden yellow with a nose of piney grapefruit, peach, and a touch of orange/lemon rind. Flavor is malt-forward grapefruit, sour citrus bread, light lemon, and a touch of honey in the finish. Average mouthfeel. Refreshing beer, especially after mowing the lawn.

I’m not sure what perfect is but this is pretty damn close to the perfect summer beer. The only gripe I have is it isn’t in cans. Great little Hoppy blonde. Me Gusta much gringos.

Clear straw colored, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma full of grassy, wood-like hop aromas. Lively carbonation. Grassy, floral hops backed by a thin malt profile. Slight lingering mineral bitterness. A nice warm weather session beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Pours a clear gold color with a thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma contains plenty of fresh hoppiness, with scents of lemon, cut grass, and flowers with only a faint glimmer of a bready, crackeresque undercurrent beneath the freshness. The flavor is even more well put together, with some faint pale malt sweetness initially hitting the tongue before quickly transitioning to a dry, crackery, and crisp mineral water finish. Lemon zest here too. Some lingering and lightly spicy bitterness clings on after the crispness subsides, which further enhances the finish. Mouthfeel is light and the carbonation is lively. Overall this is a perfectly appropriate beer for the summer months, and that finish really shined through.
