American Blonde Ale |  5.40% ABV

Availability: Summer

Notes/Commercial Description:
We wanted to create a beer with the same distinct crispness and color that you get in the days of early summer. Using a dry-hopping technique, hops are not only added to the brew kettle, but also included in the aging tank, giving the specialty beer its distinct and crisp hop aroma. The choice selection of pale and caramel roasted barley malt gives this beer its deep golden color that looks great in a glass.

Poured this American Blonde Ale from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Poured a clear straw color, produced a thin white head, Poor retention and leaves no lacing on the glass. The aroma of this blonde ale smells of cereal grains, corn and fruit. Light in body, this blonde ale has a flavor of malted grain, some mild hop bitterness, warm grits , and red apples. Overall, this blonde ale isnt much to talk about, mass produced, seems its of higher quality then some of AB's mass produced lagers, but there are much better craft brewed blonde ales out there.
