Brewery: Nita Beer Company (Ottawa, Canada)
Type: Blonde Ale
IBU: 44.6 (Yes… they gave it to a decimal place…I don’t know why)
Thoughts: Lots of carbonation happening. Golden shine- looks more like a lager/pilsner than an ale- I guess that’s where the blonde ale comes in though. Very thin and delicate head quickly taken care of by the many bubbles. Gentle floral sweetness to the nose- it’s nice on the nose. Dang it’s fresh. Balanced maltiness / hops flavouring. This is an OK easy drinker with a bit of interest. Unfortunately it lingers a little long on the back of the tongue. It’s a bit of soapiness in the hops. Yes, soapiness, in the aroma too. Apart from that it’s a nice beer. PROBLEM BEING…. every brewery seems to makes a Blonde Ale, so at this point, to me, if you’re coming out with a blonde ale, it had better be nearly perfect and thirst quenching, but this one is far from the top, so it makes it a but superfluous.
