Bottle shared by Kelly and Paul, thanks for the opportunity! Light golden color with a small bubbly white head. Light pilsner maltiness bits of fruit and earthy . Not horribly clean for a lager, decent but not great and questionable bottle age.

A solid blonde ale where the taste is as sexy as the label. Very drinkable.

The Great New London Brewing Co. "Safe Harbor American Blonde Ale"
12 oz. brown glass bottle, no apparent freshness dating.

Appearance: Slightly hazy deep golden body beneath an average sized head of bright white that drops readily and leaves only standard lacing behind.

Aroma: Grainy malt with a waft of leafy/grassy hops.

Flavor: Solid grainy malt is balanced by spicy, herbal and grassy hops and a solid bitterness. Dry, lingering finish with some residual hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied with a gently crisp, very fine bubbled carbonation.

Overall: A solid straightforward blonde that doesn't shy away from hop bitterness or flavor - or malt for that matter either.

Safe Harbor Blonde. The pin-up girl on the label looks delicious. Let's hope the beer follows suit.

Pale straw color with a bleach white head of bubbly suds. Looks nice.

Light honey malts, nice sweet aroma, faint citrus hop, and mellow grain. Smells benign. I like it.

Malts are lightly sweet and a little flabby. Some nice honeysuckle tones, but mild hops make this good. Citrusy tangerine and melon notes from the hops with a kiss of tropicalia. Easy-going and approachable, like I wish the pin-up girl on the label would be. Drinks soft and wet with a supple feel. Carbonation is light, but sustaining.
