BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Brü Rm. at BAR
Connecticut, United States
barnightclub.com

Style: American Blonde Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 3.80%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is the same Blonde that you've had for years, only now it's toasted... Nicely toasted. Notice that it has an enhanced biscuit toasty taste and a light, dry finish. This is not a heavy blonde, but once in a while, we like to dress her up and get her toasted by actually roasting 30 lbs. of a special English malt right in our pizza ovens and adding it to the brew. It is still clean and lager- like, with just a little more of everything (except calories - 107/12 oz.).

After having been subjected to sharing pitchers of this many times over the last few years, I just now realized I'd never bothered to review this one. Here goes.

A: The glass is dirty, but the beer inside is a nice pale amber and it's crystal clear. On top is a thin, frothy, off-white head. No lace. Unappealing.

S: Heavily buttered whole wheat toast. Malt and diacetyl, nothing else. Weak.

T: Sweet, buttery, grainy, toasty, and buttery again on the otherwise-watery finish. Blech.

M: Thin, watery, and only a small amount of spritzy carbonation. No better than any other aspect.

O: Unless you're a blonde looking to get toasted and you enjoy weak, buttery beer, just order the Damn Good Stout.

Cheers!

Pours a hazed straw yellow with a medium white head. Decent lacing.

Aromas of lemon zest, pale and toasted malts.

The toasted malts come through on the taste with a touch of citrus. Biscuity and sweet, nice combo.

Mouthfeel was thin and watery, good carbonation.

Overall a decent session brew and easy drinker.
