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!

Review required? Okay, this beer is super bitter and totally lacking when it comes to anything fruity or enjoyable. Its bitters on malts and basically sucks, sorry. i bet someone somewhere likes it.

Pours a straw golden color with a touch of haze and a fizzy white head. The smell was very bright with a load of hops. The taste was very hoppy too with both grapefruit and pine flavors coming through. A little abrasive for a blond ale but overall was quite tasty.

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.
