This is not an original flagship brew, but came on permanently about 2005, replacing the Wollochet Bay Wheat. This is our concession to light t beer drinkers, though our brewer rates it as his #3 favorite. The Mt. Takhoma Blonde is a light bodied, crisp and refreshing brew. German Pilsner Malt and a touch of white wheat are used to produce this ale. Liberty hops provide the balance. This beer finishes crisp and dry. Very smooth and easy to drink; garnished with a slice of orange to enhance flavor rather than hide it. 4.4% ABV and 20 IBUs.

SUPERB session ale. Highly flavor for the ABV. Iím getting banana notes ala a wheat ale, plus a bit of hops. For the ABV, itís quite difficult to do better.

Pale hazy yellow colour with a thick white head. The aroma is slightly spicy with an unfortunate whiff of diacetyl in it. Fairly decent hop flavour for the style though.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Bottle:   Straw in color, very hazy and thick, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Strong straw/hay nose, seems a little bright, some tart or sour notes coming through as well.   Grassy on the tongue, quite mealy, otherwise hay/straw with a smidgen of basement funk. &bnsp Certainly light, maybe even a bit wheaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   This is like a Blonde crossed with an American Wheat, but without the sulfer.   Not bad, light, certainly a thirst quencher, but overall rather dull and boring.   Nothing to think about once you have finished a glass.

Hazy yellow color, small white head, lace. Wheaty banana aroma with hints of grains and fruity hops. Quite good body for 3.8% beer. Sweetish fruity front, wheat, some banana, candy ... Light citrusy hoppyness. Tasty beer, I would say almost hefeweizen. I think that they may have tweaked the recipe since last raters.

Had a taste platter at the Harmon in downtown tacoma. This one was on it. Maybe its my taste buds but I havenít been enjoying blondes lately. This one was ok. Light flavor with a sweet zing aroma to it

bomber. Clear, slightly opaque pale yellow color with no head and a little carbonation. Aroma is mild citrus. Taste is a little bit sickeningly sweet and a little bit sour

pours a pale yellow with a very small white head, and not much lacing. smell is of grain, and some citrus. taste is faint, light wheat, some citrus, and a little banana, ends a little dry. overall more like a lager than a blond.
