This is not an original flagship brew, but came on permanently about 2005, replacing the Wollochet Bay Wheat. This is our concession to light t beer drinkers, though our brewer rates it as his #3 favorite. The Mt. Takhoma Blonde is a light bodied, crisp and refreshing brew. German Pilsner Malt and a touch of white wheat are used to produce this ale. Liberty hops provide the balance. This beer finishes crisp and dry. Very smooth and easy to drink; garnished with a slice of orange to enhance flavor rather than hide it. 4.4% ABV and 18 IBUs.

Draft pour, tasted at Harmon, Tacoma. First stop at the much anticipated Tacoma brewery trip, and starting off with one with quite a bit of history. Served with a slice of orange that quite enhances the aroma experience here. Pale golden pour. Moderately crisp, corny grains. Has a Mexican lager feel to it, as much as it does a blonde ale. Lingering corn grains. Alright.

Harmon Tap Room, Tacoma. Pale haze yellow, a taster glass served with a wedge of orange. Pale biscuit malts, soft and sweet. Cardboard bitterness. No hops, really simple and plain. Alright.

Draught at the brewpub
Cloudy pale blond color with greenish hue, no head.
Light aroma of refined sugar. At least it has a bit of malt flavor, some wheat, it’s fairly dry, with ordinary bitterness.
Different from other beers in the category, but too simple, forgettable.

SUPERB session ale. Highly flavor for the ABV. I’m getting banana notes ala a wheat ale, plus a bit of hops. For the ABV, it’s quite difficult to do better.

Pale hazy yellow colour with a thick white head. The aroma is slightly spicy with an unfortunate whiff of diacetyl in it. Fairly decent hop flavour for the style though.

Bottle:   Straw in color, very hazy and thick, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Strong straw/hay nose, seems a little bright, some tart or sour notes coming through as well.   Grassy on the tongue, quite mealy, otherwise hay/straw with a smidgen of basement funk. &bnsp Certainly light, maybe even a bit wheaty.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   This is like a Blonde crossed with an American Wheat, but without the sulfer.   Not bad, light, certainly a thirst quencher, but overall rather dull and boring.   Nothing to think about once you have finished a glass.

Hazy yellow color, small white head, lace. Wheaty banana aroma with hints of grains and fruity hops. Quite good body for 3.8% beer. Sweetish fruity front, wheat, some banana, candy ... Light citrusy hoppyness. Tasty beer, I would say almost hefeweizen. I think that they may have tweaked the recipe since last raters.

Had a taste platter at the Harmon in downtown tacoma. This one was on it. Maybe its my taste buds but I haven’t been enjoying blondes lately. This one was ok. Light flavor with a sweet zing aroma to it
