Renegade "5:00 Afternoon Ale"
Renegade Brewing Company - Denver, Colorado USA
American Blonde Ale (ABV 5%) (IBU 25)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 2.85/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 11/20

The pour was a clear pale yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white fluffy head that reduced down to a medium film with a small collar and had fair runny lacing.

The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, grassy hops and a funky cheesy yeast with notes of citrus and some kind of adjunct.

The taste was lightly sweet with a bready malt backbone and a slight graininess from the start, becoming just a tad citrusy with a very mild hop presence towards the finish. The flavor lasted only a short time after the swallow, with an lightly bitter American adjunct finish.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a watery yet slightly creamy texture and a soft carbonation.

Overall this was a brew with a very mild flavor, which is typical of an American Blonde Ale. Although it was not a bad beer by any means and would make a good light session brew for those hot summer days...
