Pennsylvania

3.48/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Excellent clarity. Light copper color. Coarse head fizzes out quickly. Not much remains on top after one minute.

Dark apple fruitiness with some pleasing English toasty maltiness at work. Light earthy hop with mild floral aromas. Reminiscent of a decent English pale.

Taste is similar with some herbal hop bitterness. More pomme fruit and toastiness. Light citrus, seemingly from the hops. Sensing Hallertau hops on the tongue. Tasty, yet light. Just like any decent blonde. Less traditional in the way that many are very summery. Certainly approachable. Has some mild bitterness and some metallic notes, too. Still plus execution.

Drinks a little watery. Carbonation is medium, slacks as much as it stings. Puts away easily.

Not many really good blonde ales out there, but this one is very respectable. But, this is in fact an English Pale. Not as promising, style-considering.
