Shipyard "Waterfront Brewing Co. Blonde Ale"
Shipyard Brewing Company - Portland, Maine USA
Blonde Ale (ABV 4.6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Shaker Glass]

Rating: 2.6/5.0

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

The pour was a clear medium amber with a small (less than 1 finger) white frothy head, that reduced to a thin creamy film with good runny lacing.

The aroma was of a grain malt, floral hops and a moldy yeast with hints of caramel and citrus (lemon).

The taste was lightly sweet with a decent maltiness and a hint of caramel from the get go, becoming mildly hoppy with a slight citrus peel bitter at the end. The flavor hung around for an average time after the swallow with the light bitterness fading away slowly off the taste buds.

Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry yet creamy texture and a somewhat soft carbonation.

Overall this was a pretty basic Ale for the style, a tad light in flavor, a mildly thin body and just a bit of bitter to even it all out...
