COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This refreshing light-bodied golden colored ale is smooth and easy drinking. Perfect for the beach, the backyard, or just relaxing after a long day. There is an old saying that once you get Cape Cod sand in your shoes, you will always return. Once you get a taste of Cape Cod Beach Blonde Ale, you’ll always come back for more.

4 pack of fresh 16oz cans drunk Winter ’14-’15.
Nothin like a beach blonde ale in the heart of Winter, I always say (I actually don’t). Actually a slight haze to this otherwise pencil yellow beer with a moderate amount of foamy white head.
Quite grainy in the nose with just a touch of perfumey-like floral hoppiness, but mostly earthy, dry-herbal hops and light corn and vanilla (wouldnt say DMS). Minerals, no alcohol.
A mouthful of sweet honey up front is stretched out over the mostly lean body as carbonation distributes it more evenly. Light toasted character has some mildly husky/grainy quality to it with heavy fruitiness. Perhaps a slight hint of diacetyl or DMS even, but it’s minor at best. Drinkable and with enough body and crispness on the end to satisfy.

Pours a dark amber from a can, aroma nice light maltiness, good refreshing beer with nice flavor without being heavy, a good post-beach beer.

Can at my sister’s a souvenir from her trip to the US. It has a solid fruity aroma with light cracker notes. Flatbread maltiness, a bit of honey, light fruits a nice satisfying well made blonde.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a slight golden yellow color with streams of carbonation to be seen rising through the beer. Bar pour yielded a film of a white head. Barely any lacing stuck around the glass. The smell had a sweet corn with some light toasted caramel notes. The taste was pretty much the same. On the palate, this one sat fairly light on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and to me. There’s a decent smoothness running over my tongue. Overall, good blonde ale I could probably pound on a Cape Cod beach.

On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Light banana and clove bouquet. Mild hops, bread, corn, yeast notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

hampale (54) - Jaffrey, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Pours like a typical golden ale. Light in body and mild in taste. A bit sweet with very little hop presence. Low ABV. In summary, highly drinkable as a summer option. Too bad it’s not in 12 oz. bottles or cans.

On tap at a place in Provincetown. Served in a pint glass. Poured a crystal clear gold color with little to no head. Aroma is grains with light citrus. Flavor was light grains, bready malt with more light citrus. Light bodied and easy to drink. Good beer to have with lunch which is what I was doing.
