Really easy drinking blonde ale, with no bad off-notes that I find pretty common in blonde ales. Not much on the nose in any sense, which was a bit disappointing. Otherwise, a very drinkable blonde. Not my style, but well done.

August 2015 brewery draft....pours dark gold with white foam. Full lid. Yeasty, citrus nose. Full malt flavor, but with a clean finish. Citra hops abound, especially at the close. Quite tasty.

Fluffy white two-fingered head on a translucent straw blonde colored body. Head has good staying power, especially given the style. Some lacing sticks

Aromas of pale malts, straw, hay, freshly-clipped grass.

Smooth, easy going forefront. Finishes with just the slightest of citrus hop notes and then ends with a skunk-type note that I can't quite put my finger on...I know its not skunk, but a taste I have came across in such beers as Stella Artois and some Dortmunder lagers, such as DAB. Drinks all of it's 4.8%abv.

Soft carbonation, medium-full mouthfeel. This is probably my favorite aspect of Comfortably Blonde.

Overall, a very easy drinker. One that could, and would, please the BMC crowd as a viable alternative. Another solid brew from Tighthead.
