DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - MAR 15, 2012

This Belgian Blond pours a very hazy, yellow-gold body with over an inch of off-white head that settles to a wide ring. The nose is bready, slightly sweet, a bit grassy, and fairly spicy, with quite a dusty quality to it, as well as some juniper. Itís a malty beer, with yeasty bread and toasty bread crust, but the mildly bitter hops add a floral and somewhat grassy character, and there is a pleasant yeasty spiciness in the finish. The light-medium bodied beer is well-carbonated, but it seems that much of the carbonation goes toward generating the large head, which results in a lower than desired level of carbonation on the palate. Larger patches of lacing stick to the glass. Overall, this beer wonít be memorable, but itís a pleasant, drinkable Blond to sip on over the course of an evening.

Pale malts, bread, grains and some hops in aroma. The flavor is malty, yeast and a decent hoppiness in finish. A good Belgian Ale.
