BEER INFO

Brewed by:

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 4.70%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Saint of Circumstance is our go-to, easy drinking, any occasion brew. We started by creating this tasty blonde ale using wheat for its lemony flavour and added Citra, Centennial and Amarillo hops. We took it to a whole new level by adding the zest of seasonal citrus. The result, a remarkably refreshing and balanced citrus blonde ale.

this is really nice beer, underrated on here i think, nice and hoppy, dry and bubbly, not thin at all, and super fresh from the citrus too, complex but real drinkable, session beer for beer drinkers i reckon, i like it a lot and think the art on the cans is pretty incredible too, these look great. lots of citra in nose and taste, an orange and lemon zest profile too, very fragrant but not perfumey, clean and fresh, with a relatively fluffy mouthfeel to it, wheaty maybe, dry but bigger, oddly almost creamy, i could drink a ton of these if left alone to my own devices. its sort of a pale ale meets a hoppy blonde, a neat laying of flavors with the citrus peel, not bitter in the least but definitely very hoppy. its perfect for the summer, best when ice cold, and another good one from these guys. i have liked just about all of them that i have had from them so far. this is different enough to stand out from the crowd, really flavorful for what it is, balanced and not overdone, a nice food beer, i like everything about it!

Golden with a soft haze, moderate carbonation and a finger of white head.

Smells of pilsner malts, apple juice, canned pears, and a hint of citrus pith.

The taste very fruity and dry in particular with pears and stone fruits. Grapefruit pith and clementines are in there as well

Medium body, smooth, with a light, foamy carbonation.

Drinking by Lake Muskoka, Feb 12th, 2018. Smooth and easy drinking, session ale.

Not big into floral beers, but this is subtle, and refreshing. Grassy and slightly lemony. Great beer, can art is exceptional.

Can - pours a hazed light gold ale in the glass with a 1 finger rocky white cap - reduces to a surface lace quickly but laces the glass side with sticky proteins. Aroma is infused with light lemon notes, some grassiness over boiled cereal tones. Flavor is fairly rounded and uncomplicated with citrus and earthy hop tones dominating the sturdy pale malt sweetness, turns bitter and dry in the finish - light, refreshing, a good summer sessioner
