2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours straw blonde, decent head that faded off quickly. Aroma is actually nice, sweet citrus notes and some breadiness. The taste isnít nearly as wonderful. It doesnít taste bad, just very bland. Iím actually surprised at how strong the aroma carries itself and yet tastes so bland. Drinkable summer beer on the porch with friends.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent pale hazy yellow to orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated rather quickly. The lacing was somewhat bubbly and didnít last long at all.
The smell had some citrus - like aspects to it but it didnít really meld that well.
The taste was mainly sweet but through the citrus but once again it didnít really meld that well.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a pretty good sessionability about it. Iím pretty sure I could pound a sixer of this within a session.
Overall, this was just a decent blonde ale that tried to do something different with the citrus aspect to it. I probably wouldnít come back to this.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Maybe a little dark for a blonde ale. Thin body, yeast, lemon, honey. Pleasant hop flavor but no resin. On the hoppy side but well balanced. Nice seasonal but nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Citra blonde ale. Pretty much as the name implies, easy drinking blonde with nice citra aroma. Not for everyone but pretty tame drinkable beer.
