COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mt. Hood Brewing Co.'s lightest ale. Golden sunshine blonde in color, and like our other beers, smooth and satisfying. The aroma is a pleasing blend of lightly toasted malts, honey-fruit esters, and delicate flowery hops. Highland Meadow Blonde is very mildly bittered with U.S.-grown Goldings hops; the malts are a marriage of British "floor-malted" Maris Otter malt and U.S. and British specialty malts.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear golden-orange color with a thin off-white head that diminishes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Sweet fruit and floral hops in the nose. Light body with flavors of mild hops and sweet malt, plus more fruit. The finish is clean and fruity with a malt aftertaste. Average overall.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Light golden color with a small white head. Buttery flavor with the bready malts up front and very mild hop finish. This had a strange roasted chocolate note to it, not sure what was with that, maybe they just put it on after a porter and some flavor was still in the tap line, but it was a bit odd. This just wasn’t my beer, between the buttery notes and the funky roastiness, it was just my least favorite of the sampler tray.
