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.

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.

Bottle poured into a pint glass

A- Pours a hazy bright straw yellow color with 1 finger of white head that does not linger very long, and leaves some mild lacing on the glass.

S- Smells malty, it aslo has some spiciness to it. Yeasty and grainy aromas.

T- Follows nose well. Only slightly sweet, taste is crisp and refreshing. Finishes dry.

M- Lively amount of carbonation almost feels like it dances on the tongue. The lightness in body makes this one easily sessionable.

O- Goes good on a hot summer day. A crisp, refreshing American Blonde.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/12/2012. Pours lightly hazy golden straw color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings to the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon, pear, grass, cracker, floral, bready grain, wheat, and black pepper spiciness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good strength and balance. Taste of lemon, apple, pear, cracker, grass, floral, bready grain, wheat, herbal, and peppery spiciness. Lingering notes of light fruits, cracker, grass, floral, bready grain, herbal, and peppery spiciness on the finish for a bit. Nice flavor balance with solid hop flavor complexity; more hoppy than malty; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a very smooth and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a good blonde ale style. Light, yet nicely hoppy and flavorful; and extremely smooth to drink as expected. Typical well executed blonde; nicely enjoyable stuff.

12 oz. bottle tried 28 Nov 2011. Served in the Schlafly shaker pint.

Large white head. Medium carbonation. Clear golden yellow in color. Sweet grainy aroma. Starts quite sweet and grainy. Light malts dominate. Light body, moderate ethanol. Fairly malty sweet throughout with a touch of bitterness at the finish.

Nicely done, quite easy to drink.
