Brewers Description of this Summer Boat Beer:

“Blonde Ale is brewed with the finest 2-row, carapils, and wheat malts, perfectly balanced with fragrant Cascade and Saaz hops. Pale gold in color with a clean, crisp flavor, our Blonde Ale has floral and spicy hop notes with a subtle malt sweetness in the finish. Light-bodied and refreshing, this beer works equally well on it’s own or paired with seafood, spicy food, barbeque or a host of other choices. A sensational thirst quencher, our Blonde Ale will cool you off on a hot summer’s day.”

Blonde Ale is a perfect refreshing summer boat beer.

Our Review:

Blonde Ale shines with a golden hue. The light pear and malt aroma is undetectable once the fizzy head disappears, which happens quickly after the pour. Each sip is initially malty sweet, which turns tart toward the back. The finish is a bit earthy with a slight metallic ring resulting in a slight aftertaste. A smooth tantalizing carbonation, a touch of orange near the center, and light body contribute to the ease of summertime consumption.

Mendocino’s Blonde Ale summer boat beer will appeal to most anyone who appreciates a great seasonal experience. Invite some friends to enjoy the end of a hot summer day on the water along with a few Blonde Ales.
