Blonde Ale
Beer Color


Tasted the beer at the beginning of primary. Yes, it was beer. I accidently took my gravity reading after I pitched the yeast. Oops, I hope I didn't drink too much yeast. Anyhow, it tasted fairly watery. It tasted like the main underlying taste was a pretty good balance of the lighter malt taste profile and the bitterness of the hops, just mixed with water. Really nice light floral hop aroma. I'm thinking that the hops will probably be the best part of this beer.

Excellent medium bodied beer. Very low bitterness and silky finish with a beautiful golden color. It was my first time using Irish moss and it really helped with clarity. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
