Saint of Circumstance - Advent Calendar Day 18

Day 18 and it's another one from Collective Arts Brewing. This time it is their "Saint of Circumstance" Citrus Blonde Ale

4.7% alcohol, 19 IBU

Slightly hazy pale amber with a thin white head. The aromas are grapefruit, Mandarin orange, and light toffee and mango.

The taste follows nicely, and there's a crisp, clean finish that leaves just a trace of fruitiness. It reminds me a lot of their "State of Mind" Session IPA without the hops. This is a good, solid light ale that would pair well with fish, light pasta dishes, or hot weather.

And because the artwork is always so interesting, here's another photo.
