So this appears to be Lawson’s version of an easy drinking blonde ale that will be easily accessible for a non beer geek crowd. I know my wife loves it and it’s clearly a quality brew.
Pillowy/fluffy bright white head is about a finger thick. Beer is a bright/clear brass color with a bubble or two escaping. Light sudsy lace.
Aroma is light, slightly sweet and mostly of lightly toasted grains.
Very balanced flavor and an enjoyable flavor. Bready and just beyond doughy in it’s flavor. Bitterness comes in at the end and it balances nicely with the initial sweetness and bread flavor. Mid palate there is sweet fruit that reminds me of light peach.
Light, refreshing and quaffable.
Nice representation of the style.

Cloudy golden yellow pour,half finger of bone white head,spotty lacing in the tulip.
Orange zest and a whiff of banana bread, slightly herbal/piney also. Notable difference as it warms up, as if it blossoms.
Taste pretty closely mirrors the warmed up aroma.There is a solid orange peel zing that shines and becomes brighter upon warming as well as an herbal bitterness that counters the slightly sweet malt. This is one of those beers that starts out tasting good and ends up tasting great, the bomber went down all too easy.
Mouthfeel is light medium, goodly amount of carbonation without going overboard, and a piney bitterness that rests mid palate and hangs on for a spell.
The blonde ales I've had before have been pretty boring and monotone, but that wasn't the case with Knockout Blonde. Sean Lawson has a knack for interpreting styles with a certain verve, and panache. I wish I was able to get more of these as I enjoyed it more than I expected.
