Here’s what else is on tap at my house right now. A crisp blonde ale. Blonde Ales are a little out of season considering the weather is cooling off, but for Sunday football, there’s not much better. This is a beer that can be consumed in volume! It’s dry, crisp, malty, just a hint of hops, and very, very drinkable.

This beer is a huge hit with the light-lager crowd. It’s smooth, malty, with a dry crisp finish. Personally, I wish this beer had a little more hop aroma, but that’s possibly just because I’m a hop head. I do realize the pumpkin in the picture is a little outdated with the christmas season now here, but oh well..
