Light in color, yet big in flavor, our blonde ale is part of a tribute to our favorite New England baseball team! It offers a bright clean flavor and crisp finish, but packs a hoppy twist.

Bottle shared by InspectorBob at the ’11 BA South Jersey gathering, yeah I’m on there too. Poured a super clear gold body with an average sized foamy bright white head. Aroma is NASTY, cat piss, manure and bad fish. Flavor is much better with notes of dry toast and grains, straw and hay. Drier bodied with average carbonation and a lingering finish. This just smells bad but actually tastes good.

Thanks to Bob for bringing this to BASJG. Pours out a slightly cloudy yellowish/golden color with a small white head. Aroma is of dishrag, lemon detergent and light sweetness. Taste is of grass, some citrusy hop notes, lemon peel and some spice. Flavor was a lot better than aroma.

Solid aroma of citrusy, slightly soapy hops. Cloudy golden pour with a medium white head. Good flavor of citrusy, soapy hops with some pale malt and strong bitterness in the end. The body is light with a creamy texture and lively carbonation. This is a very pleasant and enjoyable blonde ale.

October 3rd, 2008 Bought this 20 oz bottle from the Warren Store in rural VT, July 2008. Carefully brought it home and held it in the beer fridge until this evening. Poured into a Unibroue tulip. Appearance- thin white head that shrinks down and stays rung around the glass for the duration. Color is a golden straw, attractive. Aroma of bright grass, strong hops. Flavor is mostly hops, crisp and resinous with a slightly oily mouthfeel in the first few sips. Bitter hops aftertaste that lingers. Overall, a refreshing ale with a clean taste. Not much complexity, but very nice. Spoke with the Brewmaster himself at a farmer’s market on our trip; he has no plans to ship outside of VT so I probably won’t have a chance to try this again until next year at the earliest.

Bouteille de 22 oz partagées lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez moi. Arôme: Odeur de foin et d’houblons. Apparence: La couleur est blonde blanchâtre. Présence d’un moyen col crémeux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’agrumes avec une pointe de pin et d’épices. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture huileuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #1936)

Objectively speaking: A golden ale with more hop punch than many IPAs.
I like: Relatively complex hop profile (loaded with citrus and flowers) takes on the aroma and makes us forget most of the dull malt graininess going on. Clean all the way through. Lean and drinkable.
I dislike: Veiled malt presence.
