22oz bomber
A) Pours with a two finger head then settles to a tight lacing on top. Golden blond in color with some chill haze. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Grassy. Grainy. Hints of tropical fruit.
T) Grainy, nutty with some fruity tones. Hints of caramel. Not as dry and grainy as most blonds, instead has a pleasant sweetness throughout.
M) Light bodied. Creamy with a dry finish.
O) A delicious brew. I'd definitely have another!

I just figured I would review this beer because it was my first of the brewery's beer to try. It is by far the most common and on most bar taps where kassik's is available.

My review is short and sweet:
Light and weaker in comparison to Kassik's others. Not a bad bitterness and lemony cream flavor, but this is an introductory beer to the greatness of the other beers they offer, in my opinion.

On draught at the Embassy in Anchorage,Beaver Tail Blonde is a hazy dull gold with a small, white head leaving scattered lace. Nice glow to the malt.

Smell is muted (as it's served ice cold), with some bread dough and a nice, light sweetness as it opens up.

Taste is pretty clean, a nice hop spice, a bit of bread on the finish. Solid blonde, which is an exercise in subtlety.

Mouthfeel is crisp and dry, light bodied.

Drinkability is good, a nice snap to it.

I poured this beer and had no head at all and instantly i was disapointed as it poured a very pale gold color, no lacing to speak of.
Im smelling some faint german hops, with some mild sweetness breaking through, im not expecting much at this point. But then i taste it, and this beer is the best blonde i think i have ever had, it grows on me more and more every sip i take. It tastes good, bmc drinkers would say yum, and craft drinkers wod say hmm, not bad. For a blonde ale, this beer is perfect.
I am not editing this review, i have had a few and the misspellings are efficial!
So to beavers everywhere i say... Cheers!
