Description 

Brewed with American Pale and Vienna malt that combine to give this ale its distinctive smooth, creamy body. Just enough hops are added to this rich, golden colored ale to perfectly balance its bready finish. Fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish.

How do you define a great American Blond Ale? A perfect one would be exceptionally clean and refreshing, but after that, not much can be said – that’s just the nature of the style. This example has a light, bready and slightly sweet malt aroma with only a hint of a citrusy hops. It’s a clear, pale yellow in the glass with a nice white head. While you might expect some crispness to the texture of a blond ale, this one has a bit of heft to the body, fuller in texture than many other examples. It’s a slightly sweet, malty beer with some substance; a Blond Ale that might work very well as the season changes from warm summer to cool fall.
