Aloha Spirit Blonde AleAloha Spirit Blonde Ale
Notes: Light crystal and two row malts combine to make the base for this light and refreshing blonde ale. Perle and tettnang hops provide slight bitterness and balance to the malt, and a late addition of cascade hops in the boil lend a delicate aroma to the finished beer.

A: The beer is somewhat hazy yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that has good retention properties and never completely faded away.
S: Light aromas of biscuit malts are present in the nose along with hints of mint.
T: The taste has flavors of biscuit and bready malts along with a touch of sweetness and hints of mint.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and wasn't bland. I particularly enjoyed the subtle aromas and flavors of mint.

Clean gold pour, cream colored and rather significant head. Smell is fruity, somewhat tropical. Smooth with reasonable but not overpowering carbonation. Medium bodied mouthfeel. Taste is fine, oddly enough both fruity and smoky, in that order in the mouth. Ultimately isn't anything to write home about.

Thank you y2kawakami for this
12 oz can poured into a pint glass

A- A clear golden copper with a two finger white head

S- Sweet bread, some pilsner malts, some earthy noble hops, touch of citrus.

T- Sweet bread, some pale malts, some earthy hops, touch of citrus.

M- Smooth, body is a little on the watery/light side.

O- A tasty and easy to drink Blonde Ale. Simple and straightforward, but has enough flavor so it’s not boring.

Dark gold with massive effervescence and a finger-and-a-half of lasting, foamy, off-white head. Decent lacing.

Sweet challah bread dominates the relatively light aroma. It's clean tasting up front, but gives way to a mix of that malty sweetness, some light bitterness, even lighter lemon and a definite metallic twinge.

Pretty unremarkable feel. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation.

I like the head on this and it's refreshing enough, but the metallic element isn't ideal to my taste.

Look is bright yellow with a nice thick head.
Smell is citrus and malty.
Taste is a little bitter with a slight lager feel.
Feel is bubbly and refreshing.
Overall not bad. Luckily it’s right down the street from me and I can have more.
