COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by one of America’s traditional 19th-century beer styles: cream ale. Back 40 Blonde Ale is pale gold with a fruity, floral hop aroma and a velvety mouthfeel. A nice, mild malt flavor and a smooth, dry finish round out this tasty brew!

Draft... Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The soft aroma is of pale malts and spicy, floral hops. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. The flavor is a refreshing, delicate blend of pale malt sweetness and spicy, floral hop bitterness. Short, crisp, lightly snappy finish. Nice for a blonde. It washed down my smoked chicken wings quite well.

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - NOV 14, 2011
On tap at the original Uncle Billy’s location. The beer pours a slightly hazy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the grain and wheat, with not too much else going on. Fairly bland overall. The flavor is a little bit more exciting, but still pretty boring. I mainly get grain, as well as some grass. There is also a little bit of floral character, but it is subtle. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

A sample served at the brew pub. Pours light and clear. Little hop aroma present, almost kolsch-like. Earthy tastes with subdued fruit. Light-bodied and gentle mouthfeel. Certainly drinkable, but not my favorite style.
