BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Ballast Point Brewing Company
California, United States
ballastpoint.com

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.50%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
An approchable beer, with some substance. Our Bonito blonde ale is inspired by our perma-sunny days. This brew draws you in with its golden color and soft malt character, while the light mouthfeel and dry finish keeps you coming back. And what would set a San Diego blonde apart? A subtle hint of hops, naturally.

Pours bright yellow with white quick fading froth. Sweet golden ale with crisp sweet pear like accents make this an easy drinking summertime or late night ale.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours golden yellow with a tiny white head. Smells of sweet grain with a slight hint of citrus. Tastes of sweet grain with very small amount of citrus. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Golden and slightly hazy with both large and small bubbles. Topped with a finger of white head.

Smells grapefruit and caramel, with a hint of red chilli pepper.

Tastes of caramel, halloween candy, and phenols.

Light body with lots of carbonation.

Got at BevMo, drinking in Redding Sept 16, 2018. Light, decent, and okay.

This is the sixer I picked up for the opener of Monday Night Football. Probably also one of the last blondes of the summer this year. This is pretty much as expected, with bread and butter notes and a light crispness that makes this easy to drink, although almost to much so. In body and flavor it reminds me of a light beer, which isn't the ideal. Fine, but not something to go in search of.

Semi clear orange yellow, minimal head
Ester, citrus rind, grain. Not a powerful nose
Grass, melon, grain, malt, corn, pepper
Light but abrasive mouthfeel
A decent light summer ale, but mouthfeel detracts from the drinkability

A: Solid gold with white foamy head and good lacing.
N: Malt, hops, and some grain.
T: Follows the nose, grainy bite with mild hops and soft malt.
M: Light/Medium
O: A very drinkable ale, rich flavors but nothing too much for a hot day. Perfect pool beer.
