COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Marrying the best elements of traditional German golden ales and classic Midwestern wheats, this American Blonde lives up to Motherís expectations. Towhead is refreshingly light-bodied with flavor that wonít quit. It starts slightly sweet with hints of fruit and finishes with the faintest hop kiss thatíll leave you reaching for another. And another.

Towhead is Motherís little blonde baby. Weíve captured a subtle blend of sweet, fruity flavorsówell suited for close examination yet balanced enough to go down smooth, clean, and crisp when you just want something cold and tasty.

Aroma is a hint of wheat and some notes of citrus. Appearance is a clear golden hue. Taste is again some wheat with citrus and malts. Overall not a bad beer but not outstanding either.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 8, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma as a good amount bread and light grains with just a hint of grass. Flavor is lots of bread and grain. Really not too much here.

troyc (2422) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2014
[Bottle] Light golden pour with a nice looking cap of foam on top. Faint grain and cracker notes in the nose. Dough, grass, mild citrus and more cracker in the taste. Light in body. Fairly basic, but there is nothing wrong with this beer. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

Do not pour this one. I got a definite metallic taste. Sipped from the bottle was better. Probably a good summer beer after mowing the lawn but dead of winter. Wonít be poring it down for digestion again.

Indra (2591) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JAN 23, 2014
12oz. bottle. Aroma of pale, crackery, lightly sweet malts, with notes of white bread, slight honey and very faintly floral, fruity hops. Mostly clear light-medium golden in color with a fine, lasting, white head. Flavor profile is predominantly malty, more honeyish tones and white bread to be found here, some mild yeast fruitiness and very light hop bitterness appearing towards the finish. Effervescent and light mouthfeel with a light-medium body. Honestly, this is exactly as advertised, just a run-of-the-mill American Blonde style, and in that aspect, it totally succeeds. Nothing exciting, nothing too flavorful and not breaking any new ground. Is it something I plan on buying at all? Not really. (This one was given to me.)

airrick2003 (443) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Appearance: very clear light gold color, pours with a very big white head that settles down into a dense head with good retention Aroma: very light grain, butter, lemon, bread, very faint Taste: first thought is reminds me of industrial lager, some corn tasting about it, very bland, possibly the slightest bit of hops on the finish Palate: high carbonation, light mouthfeel, corn aftertaste Overall: pretty disappointed in this brew, bland except for the corn flavor, it may not be made with corn but it tastes like it ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aholmb1 (88) - New Orleans, Louisiana, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Appearance: light yellow translucent color, very white head, the head is quite dense, more than a two inch head, very crisp looking beer Aroma: fruit hint, has a wheat smell Taste: very light tasting, Palette: light body, smooth on tongue Overall: not the most flavorful beer but it is refreshing ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2013
12 oz. bottle via in-person STL trade. Pours a clear, kind of pale, bright gold with a small white head that leaves some lace and a ring. Aroma of straw, cereal, crackers, grass, and some sugary dough. Flavor of straw, sugar cookie, cereal, cracker, and a mineral note at the end. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a malty, mineral mouthfeel. As far as blonde ales go, itís fine. Not particularly interesting, but fine.

Faint bready nose, some lemon and grass on palate. Very watery beer that is smooth yet unsatisfactory
