COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Official beer of the Whaling City. Safe Harbor American Blonde Ale is always smooth and easy to drink. It has a clean profile and just a touch of malt character. Held to the light, it is light gold in color and brilliant in clarity. A slight residual sweetness is offset with just enough hop bitterness to keep things balanced.

Nothing defines our American Blonde Ale better than the very approachable and highly drinkable characteristics that make it ideal for any occasion year round. With a balanced character and relatively low alcohol level, it has a perfect balance of malt sweetness and hop bitterness.

This is a terrific “gateway” beer that introduces light beer lovers or pale lager drinkers to a more flavorful craft beer and ultimately an entirely new beer drinking world of flavor.
