My favorite one at bog iron. Golden hue. Medium body. Higher abv at 7.5, but very drinkable. Didn't even notice the alcohol. This is delicious, golden liquid bread.

Never had a blonde with so much power like this one. Doesn't feel like a 7%+ ABV blonde...

This is a new local brewery, and WOW do they know how to make beer. They offer a few styles now, but I'm stuck on the Burley Blonde. With a high ABV%, the brewery owner affectionately calls it the "panty dropper". This does not taste like it had high alcohol, and will sneak up on you. The mouth feel and aroma are amazing. I've had several friends try it, and we've all agreed that it's one of the tastiest beers we've had in a while.

Poured from a 500ml swing-top growler that was filled at the brewery, into a US tumbler glass.

A: The beer is a deep murky gold color, with a short white head that fades slowly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains citrus, light caramelized malts and a good amount of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a hearty but not too heavy malt character. Then a strong citrus and caramel sweetness quickly follows. The hops presence is good for the style but not over-powering and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, good kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to pound down for a long time.
