Style | ABV
American Blonde Ale |  5.20% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

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.
