A blonde ale with a thin creamy lacing white head. In aroma, smooth biscuitty malt with nice herbal hops, a bit light but nice. In mouth, a nice biscuit malt with herbal British hops, light oily mouthfeel, quaffable. On tap at Vices et Versa as Blonde du Vices, Nov. 26 2011.

A nicely hopped beer. An IPA for days you dont want a hop assault nor a malt assault. Very good summer drinkability. Lots of head.

My Bottom Line :
Polished pale malts sign this Golden Ales flavor profile, leading the way for leafy hop resins and their deft bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam tops the misty blond.
-The pale malts are ever-so-slightly toasted and quite aromatic.
-The hop bitterness might surprise a few unsuspecting drinkers at the pub, but if you know Dunham brews, there would be no surprise at all.
-More aromatic hops could enhance the overall experience.
-This is not a brew thats going to score well on Ratebeer, but its nicely extracted malt flavors still make it stand out within its category.
-The hop finish is a tad vegetal at times.

Boutip (6269) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 18, 2012
Bottle: Poured a clear golden color ale with a nice white foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of sweet cereal notes with light floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by sweet cereal notes with limited floral notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Nothing to write home about but no brewing flaws either.

SlovakSniper (5514) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2011
La robe est jaune. La mousse est pauvre. Au nez, les malts perdent des parfums sucrs sur lesquels stendent des armes fruits et des traces de houblons herbeux. Les saveurs sont similaires : les crales douces sont touches par des fleurs et des herbes. Les flaveurs fruites me semblent ici moins videntes. En bouche, le liquide a un corps moyen-faible avec une effervescence modre et une texture la limite huileuse. La finale se fait sur des notes lgrement amres de houblons.

rodenbach99 (4547) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 2, 2011
Bouteille de 341ml. Bire blonde bl trs claire, la mousse blanche est mince et se dissipe rapidement. Le nez est compos dodeur de mot frais, de grain mouill et de mas (mme si il en a pas). La bouche est piquante, rafraichissante avec des gots de grain frais et dherbe coup. La finale a un drle darrire-got amre pas trs agrable de vieux gazon.

Eructoblaster (4136) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 2, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Blond body with a fair, lasting white frothy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with spicy and flowery hints. Well balanced malty/hoppy taste with grainy and piney notes. Ends with a good bitter/herbal finish. Very enjoyable blond ale.

probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 20, 2012
341 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Clear golden with a nice white foam. Aroma: Light, pleasant fruity, biscuit malts, a fair bit of apple and tree fruit, slightly funky, fermented fruit too, a bit tangy. Palate: Medium body, moderate, somewhat creamy effervescence. Flav.: A little graininess, biscuit, lightly fruity, still some of that tree fruit/apple juice, not much in the way of funk or tang; dry finish with minimal bitterness and a light and pleasant malt finish.

Affable and forgettable.
