Notes / Commercial Description:
What can we say about the Blonde on Blonde? Is it the upright way she holds that tray that makes us love her? Or is it the humongous hops sitting on top that gets our bubbles bursting? This PALE ALE was our 2nd beer made available for statewide distribution, and has been a growing hit among Connecticut consumers since 2010. In November of 2012, Blonde on Blonde won 1st place in the Pale Ale catrgory at the Great International Beer Festival in Providence, R.I. It is brewed with German hops for bitterness, Zythos and Cascade hops for aroma. Come try out this award-winning beer fresh on tap, or find it where you can locate it in the region by clicking here. Served short or tall. Oh Mama!

Review required? Okay, this beer is super bitter and totally lacking when it comes to anything fruity or enjoyable. Its bitters on malts and basically sucks, sorry. i bet someone somewhere likes it.

A - A nice 3 finger head of off-white/cream foam. Body is golden blonde. Head sticks around for a while and becomes rocky. A little lacing.

S - It has that artificial sweet scent like pez. I get some floral smells as well.

T - Again with what I taste as artificial sugar. There are some good hops though that help out. Very mellow. Some lime and orange flavors

M - Carbonation is a little much. Body is just about right.

O - This is very easy to drink, but not a whole lot going on.
