Appears honey blonde with a thin white head, forming. Aroma has some vegetal notes normally found in some malt liquor. Wow, I'm still loving it. Cereal grains slight fruit, the flavor is clean drinking beer with higher alcohol a bit of corn/vegetal notes saying we fermented to get the best of you it seems higher abv than your average blonde.

Bare Ass Blonde Ale
Style: Blonde Ale

Hop Variety: Fuggle & Goldings
Grains: Pale Malt, Wheat Malt, Carapils Malt
Bitterness Units: 19 IBUs

Its clear, deep-gold bordering on amber body rests beneath a short lived head of bright white foam that drops to a thin collar and leaves little, if any, lace. The nose is clean and expresses a sweetish, straw-like maltiness with a slight fruitiness and just a suggestion of hops. It's smooth in the mouth with a medium body and a gently crisp and very fine, median carbonation. The flavor displays a grainy malt that's straightforward but clean, and balanced towards sweetness. It's clearly an ale with a nice bit of fruitiness that doesn't go overboard; and it finishes dry with some lingering grainy malt. It offers a good deal of drinkability as it does have some real character to it; and it pairs nicely with their Mesquite Chicken Roll appetizers.

A: Light tangerine orange with a slight haze and mixture of micro-macro effervesce rising at a rapid rate. Dirty eggshell colored head was thin with a skimmy covering and was weakly holding providing little to no gracing coverage.

S: Aroma was dry flowers, hay, oranges and light pilsner grains. Lightly dry.

T: Flavor was lightly dry pilsner and hay malting with some lightly dry oranges and flowers. A touch of herbaceous hops with some light grapefruit peel, tart orange that was thankfully quick and clean off the tongue upon the swallow.

M: fairly sharp carbonation wise, a bit alkaline and powdery with a malty-syrupy backing of light to medium density.

O: Overall wasn't to impressed at first, but the pilsner grain backing and semi-dry flowery hops soon grows on you coming more to light and saving this from a mediocre rating.

This is a pint served at the Arundel Mills location. The ale is cold.

Appearance: The ale is a golden yellow color. It is crystal clear with no hazy and a small ring of head.

Smell: The smell of sweet malts dominates. The aroma is faint, so it does not drive the ale. There is also a pleasant bitterness of hops.

Taste: A low-level malt presence rules the day here. It imparts a nice biscuity flavor. The hops are present but do not kick butt.

Mouthfeel: The ale's sweetness is very pleasing and the low hop character does not hurt.

Drinkability: The is a perfect example of a session ale: low in alcohol and long on good taste.

I just had Bare Ass Blonde for the first time at a beer festival and really enjoyed it. It has a golden color appropriate for a blonde ale, with a nice creamy white head and a subtle malty sweet smell. Bare Ass Blonde pairs very well with a multitude of foods. This is a good beer to serve to those who are just getting into the craft beer scene. It is only mildly hopped and yet is a full bodied brew.
