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!

A: clear; deep gold in color; 1 finger white head that receded to a thick collar; nice lacing;

S: a little restrained; dank pine; marijuana;

T: all dank pine; moderate bitterness from mid-palate through the finish, but it's a little harsh;

M: seems a little thin; moderate carbonation;

O: seems quite different than I remember; still good, but not at the level I had in my head; other reviewers have described the grapefruit and tropical fruit hoppiness that I recall;

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.
