not amazed by this, but when i drink a blonde ale, i do prefer it to be hoppy, and this one most certainly is. its darker than blonde by a shade or two, honey maybe, with a tall but short lived white head. nose of robust pils malt and european hops with more than balancing bitterness. farmy in taste, with a musty barny funky weirdness that i dont think comes from yeast. not quite tang, but funk for sure. the pale malt is heavy here, old, and rich for a blonde beer. carbonation is high, body is fuller, and there is something distinct about this one, although i dont love it all that much. hard to make a simple pale beer distinct these days, and they succeed at that, but one bottle is plenty for me right now. short of refreshing but exhibiting some of the same characteristics. im glad i was able to grab one of these from lowry liquors, those guys do a nice job.
