Brush Creek – Blonde Ale (4.8%) - Bonfire Brewing Co. (Colorado)

App: Pours a slightly hazy straw green with a one finger white head that goes flat almost immediately. Lacing is noted but not persistent.

Smell: Cereal wheatiness dominates nose with an assertive grainy aroma and sweetness. Some very mild hops aroma. Very mild esters come through. Overall, very grain-forward and sweet smelling.

Taste: Just about the wheatiest thing I've ever tasted. Sort of like a liquid version of the winter wheat I've sampled at breweries. Some slight grassy flavors from the hops on the true taste. Caramel malts come through as well with a pleasant, slightly toasted sweetness. Malt heavy to be sure, with a slight sweetness on the afterstaste.

Mouth: Very round body with soft carbonation that makes it a very easy drinking beer.

Home tasting, 12oz can into Snifter. 3/31/14.

im surprised people dont like this better than they do, a well made, slightly floral, flavorful blonde beer, especially for normal yellow beer drinkers, i would have through people would find this refreshing little session beer a little more agreeable. pale blonde and very well carbonated, amassing over an inch of fading white head. appealing. the nose and taste are both focused on light but very fresh pilsener malt and pale two row (from what i gather). there is a bit of hopping, but not bitterness to speak of, its a summery floral style hopping, maybe something czech, bright and clean finishing, extremely easy drinking at under 5% abv, and downright refreshing either as an all day beer, a palate cleanser, or a yard work brew, i like what this does honestly, and expect it to get a little more attention as the warmer weather rolls in. not what i usually drink, but this is tasty.

From a 12 oz. can into a pint glass.

A-The brew pours with a fat finger of soapy, nearly white head. Retention is moderate and there is a bit of lace left behind. The beer is hazy and a strange, rusty-tinted golden color. Some fine, champagne-like carbonation is visible.

S-The smell is very funky...almost like soft cheese. There are some wheat and grain scents, as well as an odd, sour, milky smell. A touch of fruity pale malts is discernible underneath the funk.

T-The taste is not nearly as odd as the smell, but it is not inspiring either. There is a little bit of hoppy bitterness (which is grassy and off-putting when combined with the grainy wheat taste), as well as some cracker-like, doughy, pale malts. A little bit of cheese and sour milk, as well.

M-The feel is soft, with ultra-fine, non-intrusive carbonation and a wet finish.

O-This was far from my favorite beer and the whole thing felt like a high school science experiment with all types of different flavors running into each other. The smell was just odd...funky, and not pleasing or inviting. I'm not sure if the can I purchased got cooked or what, but he smell was really a turn off. Fortunately, the taste was palatable, but less than impressive.
