Didn’t expect this to be labeled as a blond ale. Might as well call it a pale amber. I like it even more now.
This pours a golden toasted straw color with nice foaming. The foam dies down leaving some cotton in the glass. The aroma has a subdued straw-pine hop characteristic, with just the slightest whisper of a biscuity malt. A bitterness upfront has a pleasing straw note which tapers into a slightly piney finish. There’s a dry and lingering finish with the slightest hint of caramel sweetness. To be honest it’s a confusing mix of contrasting flavors with the hops and a touch of malt contrasting rather than complementing but I definitely enjoyed spending time with it.
