Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: htomsirveaux on 03-20-2012

Marrying the best elements of traditional German golden ales and classic Midwestern wheats, this American Blonde lives up to Mother’s expectations. Towhead is refreshingly light-bodied with flavor that won’t quit. It starts slightly sweet with hints of fruit and finishes with the faintest hop kiss that’ll leave you reaching for another. And another.

Towhead is Mother’s little blonde baby. We've captured a subtle blend of sweet, fruity flavors—well suited for close examination yet balanced enough to go down smooth, clean, and crisp when you just want something cold and tasty.

Golden/ straw in color with the faint aroma of pale malt and light spice, this beer has a slightly hazy body and a good pour creates a small amount of foam with tiny bubbles. The foam level isn’t impressive, but it is adequate and it does leave some lacing as you drink.

This beer offers a smooth taste that combines pale malt, biscuits, grains, and a little bit of grassiness. There is a slight bitterness in the finish, the body is crisp, and the texture is creamy. The bitterness is short- lived, however, as the beer quickly returns to the taste of sweet malt.

This is a very easy- drinking beer that makes a good choice when you want a craft beer that isn’t too complex, too filling, or too overdone. It’s a good session beer overall and it makes a good choice when you want a more thirst- quenching brew on a hot summer day.

Mother's Tow Head is a great light session beer for summer. This beer is affordable and not real heavy even though it has some great flavor. Not watered down like other blonde beers.This is a beer that is very drinkable for a style that I am not usually fond of.

Side poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Standard energy in the pour.

Appearance - Pours a medium straw color with a underwhelming half finger head that goes away as fast as it appeared. No lacing whatsoever. Like the packaging, but other than that, nothing really dazzling about the presentation.

Smell - Nose is like that of many of the style. Light grassy notes, grains, and yeast. A slight fruit hint, but barely detectable.

Taste - Very lager-like, in my opinion. Grainy, a hint of sweetness in the middle, then a dry finish.

Mouthfeel - Well carbonated, finishes dry and a with a hint of sweetness. Mediocre

Overall - Another less than stellar offering. I would drink it again, but I certainly would not buy it. There just isn't anything to it, really. Basically tastes a little better than Budweiser for more money.
