This is a beer that Val picked out for me because of my love of baseball. I thought the can art on this was incredibly well done. Unfortunately, I wasn’t a big fan of the contents.
Style: American Blonde Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “New for 2013 – The perfect ‘baseball’ beer. A smooth, thirst-quenching beer that balances the delicate sweetness of Pilsner malt and lemony/spicy notes of Sterling hops. It was specifically crafted to be an approachable but flavorful addition to everyone’s favorite pastime.”
Random: Minor league baseball games are the best. Tickets are cheap and you can always get good seats. I need to go to a Trenton Thunder game next year. I haven’t been in a very long time.
The brew poured with a half a finger of thin, pure white head that dissipated slowly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was very hazy and bright yellow with moderate carbonation. The nose had wheat,lemon and Pilsner malt. The taste started with a honey sweetness and bready malt. What I didn’t get was wheat or lemon, which would have significantly improved this beer. The body was thick, which didn’t help with the drinkability and the carbonation needed to be dialed up as well. It made this beer feel really heavy. It had a quick finish with white bread and crackers. A single can of this retailed for $1.83 ($.15 per ounce). I didn’t like this beer at all. There are so many better beers in this style. I don’t feel the need to have this one again.
