Finch’s Blonde Ale is an easy drinking and approachable American craft beer. It has a moderately sweet malty aroma and is deep gold in color. We like to think of this particular one as more of a ’Dirty Blonde.’ When you first pour it, a soft lacey foam clings to the glass as malty aromas fill your nose and linger to the final sip. Upon finish, this blonde turns heads with a smooth finish and a touch of bitterness in the aftertaste. Enjoy this medium-bodied craft beer anytime of year.

Nice golden beer. Tastes like an American blonde should taste, nothing special but nothing poorly executed. Straw dry finish with a touch of malt and bitterness, and sturdy carbonation.

Rated fr0m cans b0ught at the l0cal supermarket: G0lden-yell0w b0died, clear and bubbly, this had a m0dest sh0rt-lived head that did s0me nice lacing regardless. The n0se had light pale malt, a t0uch grainy, with s0me citrus n0tes. The flav0r was mainly citrus rind/zest with a quiet underlying malt sweetness. It had a nice dry and slightly bitter finish. This w0uld be a g00d lawnm0wer beer if it c0st less.

A very bitter ale that has a soapy taste. Not fruity and leaves a bitter aftertaste. Pours light yellow in color. Had his one at home. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From the can. It pours pale yellow with a short-lasting white head. Slightly cloudy. Summery aroma of biscuit malts, grains, sweetness, grass, and orange peel. Not much in the way of hop aromas. Light to medium body. It tends to have a grainy malty character with another dose of orange. Clean finish.

Can from riverside Liquors. Pours golden with a thin white head. Leaves some lacing yep. A bit corny on the nose. I get a smidgen of some sort of hoppiness on the tongue. Finishes clean. Eh!

Can: Mild dandelion bouquet. Shimmering amber, thin head. Ash, with a touch of DMS. Finishes with wormwood and walnut. Thin, but flavorful and sessionable. Surprising complexity and interesting nuances.

A: Hazy Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, Thick White Head, Great Lacing S: Wheat, Yeast T: Yeasty, Wheat M: Great Carbonation, Light to Medium Bodied, Semi Drying, Semi Bitter Overall, not a very refreshing blonde ale as you would expect, more towards a non-spicy saison than a blonde ale.

This poured a hazy straw yellow with a white head. Aroma was grassy and grainy. Flavor was similar, lightly choppy golden ale. Ok

Too hoppy for me. Tastes like some kind of medicine. Can’t really detect anything else.
