Green Flash GFB Blonde Ale

GFB. Green Flash Blonde Ale. San Diego, CA. ( and Virginia Beach, VA) 4.8% ABV.

Clear, pale golden color, slim white head.

In the nose: light. quiet. simple. subtle. inoffensive. mellow malt notes, mellower hops.

In the mouth: here the hops pop up, brisk and buoyant. Light bodied, easy drinking. Tidy hop presence, crisp malt. More mellow.

Every time I take it a blonde ale, I have to remind myself that I might not like them, but plenty of other people do. If you're one of them, go for it. It's nice, if boring. But that's what you're looking for, I guess.
