2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is labeled a "Blond Ale" at the brewery, but seems to be intended very much as an introductory offering to the micro-brew novice...something to lure them away from their typical pale lagers. And as a micro-brew on training wheels, it really isn’t too bad. The nose is pretty weak, merely some very light caramel maltiness. Flavor is also not very bold...light caramel and only a faint hint of hoppiness, clocking in at around 8 IBU. But I can see the usefulness of such a product...you have to start somewhere, I guess.
