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.
