Beer Review, Stone Cat Blonde Ale

Stone Cat Blonde Ale
Mercury Brewing, Ipswitch, MA
Unknown ABV

Appearance: Hazy yellow/brown body, thick white bubbly head. Quite a bit of effervescence. Head dissipates quickly. 3.5/5

Smell: Tarty sweet citrusy hops, with a bit of banana and a hint of grapefruit. A bit cloying. 3.0/5

Taste: Very yeasty, lots of banana flavors with a cloying orange finish and aftertaste. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Thin but somehow chewy. Lots of yeast. Lots of carbonation. 3.5/5

Drinkability: It's an okay quaffer, nothing more. A bit heavy for a blonde for my taste. Those who like lots of citrus will probably find a lot to like here. 3.0/5

Overall: 3.35/5
