Wild Onion Phat Chance

Posted: November 26, 2015 in American Blonde Ale, Onion Pub & Brewery, Reviews

One of the kittens found a furniture pad, you know, the little felt pads that have a sticky side and a fuzzy side. I’m not quite sure what he thought it was, but he went nuts over it. Simcoe, unlike his brother, Citra, is going to be the hunter. His brother is much more into relaxing on soft, warm things. Now that you’ve heard about the feline dynamics of the kittens, let’s talk about beer.

ABV: 5.2%

Style: American Blonde Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “A uniquely satisfying ale, brewed exclusively with Canadian 2-Row Pale Malt and Centennial hops. The use of only two ingredients highlights the fruity/citrus-like character of the Centennial hop, one of our favorite varieties from the Pacific Northwest.”

Random: One of the things that craft beer tends to point out about big beer is how they use women to sell beer. This can seems to embrace that as well…just saying.

This brew poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was a hazy orange color with no visible carbonation because of how cloudy the beer was. The nose had grain, wheat and yeast. There was nothing else to the nose. The taste was not good. It had light, grassy hops and then transitioned into grain and this weird note of tin. It had bread at the end. The body was watery and thin with moderate carbonation. The finish was thankfully quick with bread and the same tin taste. A can of this will run you $1.49 ($.12 per ounce). Despite the affordability of the beer, I found it unpleasant and one that I would avoid having again. It’s almost a drain pour.
