This drink, which we define as a 'Bitter, Sweet, Pale, Blonde Ale, With Complex Floral Flavours.' (a Blonde Ale), has a strength of 5% ABV.
A bright golden beer with complex fruit flavours that ends with a bitter sweet dry finish.
The use of Mount Hood as the aroma hop, gives this beer a pungent hoppy fruitiness, akin to a citrus fruit, notably lime. There is also a hint of cereal malt on the nose which evokes the spirit of the mash from whence this Ale (called simply Beer) came. On the palette the overwhelming sensation is citrus fruit (lime marmalade, but also overripe grapes spring to mind) along with warming alcoholic esters before a bitter, hoppy and dry finish which is enlivened by a lasting citrus (lime) and grainy malt making a late surge.
A delicious blonde beer to be taken with care.
