From the brewer

A tall blonde! Very smooth and pairs well with lighter foods. Light on the IBUs so she isn't bitter and still full of flavor. A clean, crisp, golden ale with light hops.

Who's been drinking this

Seemed extremely overhopped for a blonde. I see previous notes like this, maybe it's always been this way?
I normally like this one but especially after the Whistling pig, this one seemed overhopped today.
First time I've had this on its own rather than following up another beer. There's a lot to like here - mellow cereal, a bracing, bitter pilsnery finish. It is strong for a blonde, at 6.9%, and it shows, which may be its main flaw. But it's still quite tasty.
Boozy for a blonde, with some bitterness. I'm not sure I was tasting everything after the flavorful beer I had right before it.
Lightly flavored but with more substance than most blondes, probably due to having nearly 7% ABV. As the weather heats up, I could get very used to this.
