This bottle was courtesy of the infamous Adam Jackson. Thanks Adam!

Knockout Blonde pours a light bodied, bright honey gold in color with a one finger bright white head. It looks great. The nose is pretty bland and average for the style, just pale malts and honey. The flavors are somewhat dry and bitter. It features pale malt, an ever so slight touch of honey, and a prominent bitterness perhaps from the hops. That said, it certainly isn't hoppy. It drinks light and dry and is really a pretty mellow beer. I wouldn't necessarily buy this if I saw it but it wouldn't be a bad beer to open after a hot day ate pool or in the yard.

Another part of a trade. Again, many thanks.

Appearance: Light golden body with a lacy white head.

Smell: Fantastic! First whiff is like fresh hops with a sweetness and something else I can't quite put my finger on.

Taste: Light, and hoppy. As it warms I get kind of an unbalanced bitterness that is a bit disappointing after that first smell. There's also a cracker almost yeasty taste going on.

Mouth Feel: Light body with pleasant bubbles.

Overall: A satisfying beer but goes slightly wrong for me somewhere, probably in that slight bitterness unbalance I picked up. I don't think the carb helped that so much later on in the beer but a decent bottle nonetheless.
