Let's admit it. Sometimes life gets you down. And just like life is too short to drink crappy beer, life is too short to let the problems of the day weigh you down. So let's practice some psychoanalysis techniques, a sort of Rorschach test for real-life issues. Ready? Let's begin: Okay, so the baby's leaky diaper has just blasted a god-forbidden biohazard all over the cream colored living room carpet. So what do you see? That's right, a lovely pint of this glorious blonde ale! Great! Let's try again: Oh no, the boss is yelling at you. What do you see? At first it looks like a giant flaming asshole, but wait, look closer".... That's right! You see this frosty pint reaching your lips, which pacifies your senses with a cold, crisp and clean malty flavor that quenches even the most desperate thirst. Excellent, you're doing great! Okay, final scenario: Your spouse is screaming at you for not (pick one: doing the dishes, cutting the grass, participating with your spouse in a doily weaving and rice cake tasting class). What do you see? Right again! You see yourself sitting not in divorce court but on a chaise lounge beside the pool appreciating the ever-so-subtle apricot, mango and pine flavors from the Azacca hops. Guess what? You passed the test and are certifiably not insane! So celebrate your sanity by subduing your sobriety with a cold and frosty pint of this problem-solving and soul-satisfying blonde ale!
Optional Ingredient: If you would like to add a citrucy variation to the beer, then choose your favorite citrus peel below!
All About American Blonde Ale
American Blonde Ale is a beer style that originated in the United States and is a variation of the classic Blonde Ale style. It is a light-bodied beer with a pale to golden color, and a clean, crisp flavor profile that emphasizes the use of American hops. That's why we call it American Blonde Ale. If our hops came from the glorious nation of Kazakhstan, then we would call the style "Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan Blonde Ale". Has that certain ring to it.
American Blonde Ales typically have a moderate hop bitterness and aroma, with notes of citrus, pine, and floral flavors. They also have a mild to moderate malt character, with a slight sweetness that balances the hop bitterness. Some American Blonde Ales may also have added fruit or spice flavors, such as apricot or honey, to create a more complex and unique flavor profile. In other words, you're gettin' crazy with it.
Compared to Belgian Blonde Ales, American Blonde Ales are typically less spicy and more straightforward in flavor. They are also often lighter in body and alcohol content, making them a popular choice for a sessionable beer that can be enjoyed during social events, outdoor activities, indoor activities, activities that are simultaneously outdoor and indoor, and activities that occur in some parallel universe.
Overall, American Blonde Ales are a refreshing and easy-to-drink beer as evidenced by your empty glass. Yeah, we can say that these yummy brews pair well with a variety of foods, from grilled meats and vegetables to spicy dishes and salads, which they do, but who really cares, because what we ultimately care about is that our glass is empty, and dammit, now I have to get off the couch and get another. Oh, and blonde ales are a great choice for those who enjoy a lighter beer with a moderate hop flavor and aroma. So drink up!
