Thanks to Shufon for sending me this bottle of LFL Knockout Blonde.

It's hard to imagine that blondes and cream ales were created by the microbrew movement as an alternative to light and pale lagers. This beer is a huge departure from these beer in the taste department. Knockout is BMC pale with a nice sticky head. Crisp hops and slightly sweet malt decorate the nose. The beer is super bitter with a nice crisp mouthfeel and a dry finish. Very good, I wish this were easier to get here in Philly because this would be a great BBQ beer.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

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.
