Since my university days, I've enjoyed drinking blonde ales in the summer. They tend to be light and crisp and go great in hot weather. Canada's Knotty Blonde Ale certainly fits this bill.
It's a light tasting beer with a slight fruity flavour. I know what you're thinking - light tasting beers taste like water and usually suck. Well, that's not the case with this Knotty Blonde. It's crisp tasting with a subtle maltiness, and it isn't hoppy at all.
I drank this 650 ml bottle quickly. A bunch of these would go down very easy sitting out on the back deck. Even Carolyn really enjoyed it.
Not much of a head formed on my initial pour even though I thought I poured it aggressively. When I topped up the glass at the halfway point, I nice thick frothy head formed which was nice.
Brewed by Old Yale Brewing Company in the Chilliwack River Valley, the brewers claim to use Canada's best drinking water. I don't know about that claim, but Knotty Blonde Ale tastes pretty damn good.
It's easy to give this beer four burps. If you're looking for a fresh and crisp tasting beer to enjoy during hot patio weather, this is it.
Let me know if you like it.
