I can’t wait until baseball is back. I love hockey, but I enjoy baseball season because it lasts so long and there’s always a good game to watch. This beer is one that I was hoping would be a good selection once the weather gets warm.
Style: American Blonde Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Skatepark of Tampa and Cigar City Brewing, two Florida originals, have collaborated on this crisp beer with notes of lime, orange and salt that can be enjoyed after a skate session or anytime you’re with friends. A portion of the proceeds from sales of this beer will go toward Boards for Bros, a nonprofit dedicated to rebuilding and distributing skateboarding equipment to underserved youth, empowering them to acquire important life skills.”
Random: I love when the weather is cold, but I love a good hot-weather beer.
The beer poured with about a finger of head and dissipated almost instantly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was clear and golden-yellow in color. There was a lot of carbonation visible. The nose had some citrus and flowers with some wheat as well. The taste had the same wheat that was apparent in the nose and it went into floral notes with some honey. I was hoping for a bit more lime and salt, but the floral notes overtook. After a few sips, I picked up orange segments. The body was light and crisp with a lot of carbonation. It had a quick finish with orange and wheat. This was an easy drinker, but I wish it had more depth. I wouldn’t rush back to have it again.
