Eel River Brewing Company California Blonde Ale
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Eel River Brewing Company California Blonde Ale.
From the Eel River Brewing Company website: “The California Blonde Ale is a light, crisp blonde ale with a perfect balance of malt and subtle bitterness. Whether you're new to the world of craft beer or a seasoned craft beer veteran, this is just the beer for you!”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours a bright golden color with a nice off-white head.
Aroma: Crisp, clean with light sweet grains, sugar, honey, caramel and citrus fruits.
Taste: Lightly toasted grain, faint citrus hops, a little sweet honey and biscuit.
Overall: Light and refreshing, easy drinking Eel River Brewing Company’s California Blonde Ale is enjoyable and at 5.8% ABV a beer worth having a few of. Overall I liked it.
