As soon as I saw the can of Guinness Blonde, I knew I had to try it. I love Blonde beers, and I like Guinness. I knew it had to be good, and I wasn't disappointed.
It wasn't until I got home and looked at the can that I realized that this blonde beer's full name included "American Lager". Upon closer inspection, the beer isn't even made in Ireland. True to it's name, it's made in America. Pennsylvania to be exact.
When I poured the beer, the first thing I noticed was the beautiful amber colour. I was anticipating a pale yellow like many American lagers, but this Blonde beer looked tasty. And, its looks didn't disappoint. This was one tasty beer.
It had a nice hoppy taste. Not to strong or overpowering. As Carolyn commented, she could understand why people would like this beer. It was very well rounded. It had good flavour, but not to much. I found it went really well with hot wings. It cut the heat easily and left a nice refreshing taste in my mouth.
I could drink a bunch of these while sitting on the deck on a warm day. Guinness Blonde American Lager went down easy yet it had a somewhat complex taste. Nothing to say bad about this beer. That's why I give it four burps.
Drinking the world.
One beer at a time.
