COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Marrying the best elements of traditional German golden ales and classic Midwestern wheats, this American Blonde lives up to Motherís expectations. Towhead is refreshingly light-bodied with flavor that wonít quit. It starts slightly sweet with hints of fruit and finishes with the faintest hop kiss thatíll leave you reaching for another. And another.

Towhead is Motherís little blonde baby. Weíve captured a subtle blend of sweet, fruity flavorsówell suited for close examination yet balanced enough to go down smooth, clean, and crisp when you just want something cold and tasty.

Towhead has a thick, slightly off-white head, a mostly clear, golden appearance, and some glass lacing left behind. Aroma is of very yeasty, sweet, sourdough white bread, and the taste is of those elements, with a shadow of banana and coriander. Bitterness exists, simply for rounding purposes. Mouthfeel is medium and a touch slick, and Towhead finishes crisp and refreshing. RJT

Clear gold, white head, sweet grain, a touch of lemon. Pleasant enough for what it is.

The beer pours golden yellow with a light haze and has a white head. The aroma has rich pale malt, cream and some dough. It has a medium body with fairly soft carbonation. The taste starts with spicy hops, lake malt, light saltiness and crackers. The finish is a bit watery and salty. Okay.

Mild ale with sweet taste and aroma. More like a product of a mass brew than a micro. Not bad, just eneventful.

Pours medium light straw color. Perhaps a little darker than light lager normally is. Pretty thick head. Thick clinging lacing. Lots of rising bubbles. A little cloudy.

Aroma is much like sourdough. I also smell pine, and some lemon.

Taste isnít great. Lemon bitterness. Could be hops. Might be a little corn flakey. Itís not bad.

Mouthfeel is clean, quite dry. Maybe a little grainy. A little bitter. Not as drinkable as you might expect.

Overall I like it okay. Itís not as good as I had hoped. Itís a light tasting beer with good flavor. They succeeded there. But its not memorable. Despite the low score I could suggest you try it, but not necessarily recommend it.

Nsanders (1112) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle. Pale yellow with minimal head. Over ripe banana, corn flakes, light sourdough and dandelions. Tastes dry and bready. Body is lighter with a fizzy feel.

Pretty boring lawn mower beer. Some sweet grain aromas and flavors.. Otherwise this is pretty boring.
