Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Finch's Blonde Ale is an easy drinking and approachable American craft beer. It has a moderately sweet malty aroma and is deep gold in color. We like to think of this particular one as more of a 'Dirty Blonde.' When you first pour it, a soft lacey foam clings to the glass as malty aromas fill your nose and linger to the final sip. Upon finish, this blonde turns heads with a smooth finish and a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Enjoy this medium-bodied craft beer anytime of year.

Can pour, half a finger head. Typical blonde color. The aroma and taste are similar and there's something in there I don't like. I don't know if it's the combination of citrus flavor and the hop bitterness, but I didn't like this beer as much as I thought I would.

It has been a long time since I have had this beer. But from what I can remember this beer was ok. The taste was not all that bad. I enjoyed the sweet and malty flavor that this beer has. The aroma was not all that bad as well. I liked the golden color that this beer has as well.
