Garage Brewing Company 951 Blonde Ale
What the brewers say
A golden-hued, well-balanced beer that is crisp and most refreshing.
What our panel thought
Earthy hop aroma with hints of onion, pine, and bread-like malt. The flavor has a mineral edge that brings out some grainy malt, but oxidation mutes the impact. A hint of corn-like sweetness serves to temper the bitterness. Balanced, crisp. There's little to grasp. Not much of a lasting impression.
What our editors thought
A slightly sweaty tropical nose is backed by a touch of honey. On the sip, a slightly murky earthy hit leads, but the finish is lackluster.
