Mother Ale pays homage to the best in all of us. This rich bodied golden ale is smooth and satisfying. Brewed using North American grown pilsner and wheat malts, and topped off with European noble hops, Mother Ale is a reminder that mother knows what’s best. After a day of fishing, rafting, or just marveling at the bounty of mother earth, no beer knows what “ales” you better.

Figured it would it would be fun to try a new (to me) Alaskan brewery. This one was pretty much what I expected -- a simple, super-easy-drinking blond ale. Not a huge amount going on in the flavor department, but well crafted and tasty. Nice beer.

Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of metal, taffy, plastic, and diacetyl. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Dirty...drain pour bad.

Tomates et concombres du jardin de chez Yan avec vinaigre de Xérès et épices à steak. Sublime avec cette petite bière blonde.

J’ai bien aimé cette canette de bière blonde bien houblonnée que Boul nous a rapportée d’Alaska. Elle est fraiche et se laisse boire toute seule. Franchement bonne.

Tan body, ok head. Earthy hop nose with a bready pale malt character. So, too, the body is earthy hoppiness and bready pilsen malt with some wheat fullness. This one is on part American Golden Ale, one part saison, and one part Belgian Golden Ale. A lovely, easy drinking beer with an appreciable complexity.

Can:   Smooth beer, lightly hopped, clean, a touch of straw and hay.   Not as bright or hoppy as others, but rather smooth.   I liked this one quite a bit.   Very pale breadiness, but mostly a soft yet thick straw/hay presence.   This is a great quaffer!

The appearance is a pale golden colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies leaving some nice sticky foamy lacing in its wake. The smell has a clean crisp sweet wheat and a little bit of fresh sweet corn. The taste is mainly sweet through the wheat and corn and combined pretty well done - I like it. It has a sweet wheat aftertaste and dry crisp finish. The palate is light bodied and is fairly sessionable. Carbonation comes across fairly smooth and I’d say pretty good to me. Overall, not sure why I’m having this at this time of the year, as I’d say this is good for the style and I guess a nice breakup from winter stouts.

Draft at sb. Definitelya. Cut above most blonds. Pours a clear medium gold with a scant white head and tons of nucleation columns. Light lace. Nice toasty biscuity nose, light grass. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, grassy mid palate. Mild finish. Refreshing. Quite nice.
