Beer Review: Spring Blonde by New Belgium

This beer is a Blonde style.  Here is the description of an American Blonde Ale from BA(beer advocate):
“More or less a creation from the craft-brewery movement, and also reminiscent of the German style Kölsch. Pale straw to deep gold for color. Usually an all malt brew, well attenuated with a lightly malty palate. Most have a subdued fruitiness. Hop character is of the noble variety, or similar, leaving a light to medium bitterness. A balanced beer, light bodied and sometimes lager like.”

Smell: Straw, malt.

Taste: Light hop, tartness tapers to a sweet finish.

Mouthfeel: crisp, light, slightly flat

Appearance: Very light and clear, bright yellow, resembles an American lager.


Overall: Not that impressed.  This beer does not stand out at all.  It is nice and light and would make a good summer beer, but I could also buy something less expensive to fill that role.  If you’re more of a Bud/Miller/Coors drinker, you’ll probably enjoy this for a change.
