COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Niagaraís Best Blonde Premium Ale is our flagship brand. It is a multi-award winning ale (twice named Ontarioís Best Cream Ale as well as receiving prizes at beer festivals and shows) which is sold at select LCBOís and Beer Stores across Niagara and the GTA. We chose a blonde ale as our first beer since it is the ale variety that many consider to be the closest taste to traditional lager beers. Itís a beer that appeals to all beer drinkers and that is why our Niagaraís Best Blonde is so popular.

Gpnterojd (176) - Waterloo, Ontario, - MAR 6, 2011
Very little aroma -- faint hops. Cloudy, golden appearance, no head. Gets a little more distinguished in the mouth: burnt yeast dominates yet is still toned down. Well balanced. Heavy and smooth. Unremarkable except for the particular yeasty flavour that is rare in Ontario.

Ferris (4737) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 3, 2014
Draft - Light pale malts. Light clear gold with a decent head. Light pale malts and a slight bitterness. Decent but nothing special.

tompete (217) - Tillsonburg, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 28, 2013
On tap at TGIFrideys. Slightly hazy golden with a thin white head. Aroma of sulfur and yeast. Flavour is only slightly bitter, but itís a harsh one. Finish is distinctly malty.

Bendrixian (1161) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2013
Clear golden colour. Muted aroma but there is a yeasty/banana and a hint of esters in the aroma that is strange. There is some bite in the palate and a slight leafy hop note and a yeasty flavour. I find this one different but drinkable.

Had on draft @ the brewpub in Canada, last night of the trip .. . pours a simple yellow gold .. mild head, lacing is spotty .. . light grain, hay .. . very light mouth .. decent for a quick lager .. . . our waiter tonight, is a putz ...
Earlier Rating: 8/21/2012 Total Score: 3.4
Draft @ Syndicate, Niagara Falls .. . i quite liked this .. good solid mouth .. sweet hay .. . medium finish .. a mild beer but enjoyable .. But in his defense, that ring was kind of asking for it.

On tap at Tapís on Queen. Little white head, poured pale gold. Citrus and banana aromas. Strong banana flavour. Easy drinking.

Spab (2516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 9, 2011
341 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with small white head. Aroma is grains and a little fruit. Flavour is also quite grainy with some slightly sourish fruit. Slightly lifeless feel to it. All in all a little dull but by no means is it terrible.

whitecap (289) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
341ml bottle from Syndicate brew pub. light hazy orange/blonde thin creamy quickly dissipating white head. biscuit malt aroma some corn and some floral hops. somewhat sweet. Iíve had this a number of times. On good days (perhaps when itís fresher?) Iíd give it a three. On a bad day it tastes almost infected (0.5) and today itís just boring. Better than the macros but i think it has an unusual yeast / sour flavour to it. Niagaraís best/Taps have done much better than this...

Eructoblaster (3080) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 7, 2011
Bottle - 341ml. Pale blond body with a very thin white foamy head. Thin malty/hoppy aroma with some grainy hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppiness. Ends with a short bitter/herbal finish. Nothing to get excited about.

Hammy78 (762) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 2, 2011
Draught at "The Winking Judge" Hamilton. Pours a cloudy gold colour with a little white head. Not much scent to it. Taste is a little hoppy. Pretty run of the mill.
