Tasting Notes: A vibrant gold, crystal clear American-style blonde ale topped with a white foamy cap. On the nose, whiffs of toasted bread intermingle with floral, earthy hops and a hint of pom fruit. On the sip, the grainy notes are balanced by a soft hop bitterness. It’s clean and crisp with a medium body.
Food Pairing: Try this 15 calorie brew with a strawberry, goat cheese and mixed green salad, the beer’s lighter flavors let the herbaceous greens shine, and the beer’s bubbles cut through the creamy cheese. Finish it off with a citrus-based dressing, the lemony notes amplify the ale’s fruitiness. The graininess of the beer also complements the sweetness of flaked fish, both are delicate and won’t cancel each other out.
The Verdict: Golden, bubbly and easy-drinking, this malt-forward ale will be a crowd-pleaser. While other lighter, alcohol-free beers tend to be watery, Partake BLONDE’s fuller body and balanced flavour profile make it an instant classic.
