Notes/Commercial Description:
What can we say about the Blonde on Blonde? Is it the upright way she holds that tray that makes us love her? Or is it the humongous hops sitting on top that gets our bubbles bursting? This PALE ALE was our 2nd beer made available for statewide distribution, and has been a growing hit among Connecticut consumers since 2010. In November of 2012, Blonde on Blonde won 1st place in the Pale Ale catrgory at the Great International Beer Festival in Providence, R.I. It is brewed with German hops for bitterness, Zythos and Cascade hops for aroma. Come try out this award-winning beer fresh on tap, or find it where you can locate it in the region by clicking here. Served short or tall. Oh Mama!

Impressive dome head from a gentle pour into the glass. Slow to recede. Leaves moderately chunky lace on the glass. The liquid is orange-dirty gold color. Hazy.

Fresh nutty fully malted barley aroma. Light floral hop provides balance.

Comes across like a moderately hopped home brew. Lots of yeast bite. Starts with a pale malt tongue but succumbs to a black pepper hop bite that lingers through the finish and aftertaste. Modest body with an elevated carbonation level.

12 oz. to pint glass. Random X-mas gift.

Bright pale orange with some haze. Giant white head falls to about a finger eventually, gettin' all crater-y and leaving nice lace.

Smell is definitely on the fainter side, but not bad. Grapefruit juice, earthy/herbal hops, bread, pale malts.

Taste is an improvement, a little more hop bitterness here as well. Citrus/grapefruit juice forward with some herbal and grass, bready and grainy malts with light sweetness and a toasty finish.

Full mouthfeel with low-ish carbonation and medium bitterness. Easy-drinking and well-balanced.

Good mix of hoppy pale+blonde ale, definitely wouldn't mind having a few of these in a night.
