Notes/Commercial Description:
Finch's Blonde Ale is an easy drinking and approachable American craft beer. It has a moderately sweet malty aroma and is deep gold in color. We like to think of this particular one as more of a 'Dirty Blonde.' When you first pour it, a soft lacey foam clings to the glass as malty aromas fill your nose and linger to the final sip. Upon finish, this blonde turns heads with a smooth finish and a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Enjoy this medium-bodied craft beer anytime of year.

It has been a long time since I have had this beer. But from what I can remember this beer was ok. The taste was not all that bad. I enjoyed the sweet and malty flavor that this beer has. The aroma was not all that bad as well. I liked the golden color that this beer has as well.

A: Pours a slightly hazy gold with a creamy, fluffy white head. Head retention is very good. Lacing is moderate.

S: Aromas of bread, biscuits, honey, cream, caramel, lemon, minerals, grass, and straw are present on the nose.

T: Notes of bread, biscuit, cream, and minerals are apparent on the entry, but are pushed aside by notes of lemon rind, lime zest, grapefruit pith, grass, straw, and herbs. Bitter citrus flavors linger on the finish, but are balanced by subtle notes of cream, minerals, biscuit, and honey.

M: Very light in body, creamy, and smooth. Carbonation is crisp.

O: An interesting and underrated blonde ale. There is a lot to take in here, especially when compared with many other ales of this style. I love the turbulent, complex flavor profile.
