- Rules, schmules. Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red; or an overgrown American wheat taking Celtic harp lessons; or a Kölsch gone rogue and on the run from the Reinheitsgebot ... pigeonhole it if you must, but this creamy-textured, straw-gold ale begs to be judged on its own merits. Capped with a dense meringue of nose-dotting foam, the pint offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops. A full body with thick mouthfeel, more buttered toast and fruity hops give way to a finish evenly split between malty and bitter. Flaked barley and oat malt (wheat DME for the extract version) build density and a viscous texture with supporting grain flavors. Serve at cellar temperature any time of year; if you really want to go nuts, keg it and dispense with beer gas through a stout faucet!

- 4.2 / 5.026 ReviewsTatses Great!!I let sit 2 weeks primary and 1 week secondary started at 1.060 OG finished at 1.010, I had to try one after a week in the bottle. I needed to check the taste and color. I'm surprised this is the best tasting brew after 1 week in the bottle I have made. and check the picture, I will for sure make more of this.Irish Blonde AleMarch 11, 2017Purchased
1 year agoNot what I expected, but still tasty!This ale came out nice, very clear and very tasty, but not what I was expecting. Definitely not straw-gold in color. I followed the directions to the letter, I am a very anal-retentive brewer so you better believe this was brewed exactly as they said to. My finished ale is almost identical to Bass ale in taste and just a little lighter in color. I love Bass ale, so I am happy to drink this, it just wasn't as described or expected. If you like Bass ale then this kit is for you!July 1, 2016Great kitEnded up over 6%. I definitely recommend liquid yeast for this (I used White Labs). A wheaty malt base and citrus-y hop flavor rounded out by the smoothness of a lager, this batch is getting better with age. Add some more grains to this kit as the included grain bill is pretty small.March 18, 2016September 30, 2015okI brewed it for a lawn mower beer and it fits the genre.June 20, 2014great beerAnother great beer.Brewed per instructions.It has more of an amber color to it,but taste is more important than color and I think this is a great tasting beer.Pretty true to description.This might replace cream ale on my rotation.December 6, 2013easy brew just not my stylewas way easy to brew and looked great but it left woody earth tones in the aftertaste that made it not as enjoyable. I thought it would be lighter in color too over all a good beerNovember 6, 2013Order shipped FastHeard great things about this brew. Very excited to brew it. Went with Wyeast 1084 irish ale. Will update when ready!!September 5, 2013Irish Blonde is "Goldilocks" to meLove this beer. Not to heavy, not to light, just right. I have brewed this a couple of times and it is my new go to brew. I was looking for a beer similar to the popular Irish lager, from Dublin, but this was so much better. It has a fuller body, not overly hoppy, and very smooth. This is on my permanent rotation.August 7, 2013
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 5 answersDoes this kit contain everything someone would need to try brewing for the first time?BEST ANSWER: A first time brewer will be successful at following the instructions with the ingredients in the kit. This assumes the brewer has the brew equipment and facilities. Follow the instructions and you will be okAny recommendations on a target CO2 level? I would guess around 2 vol if it's meant to drink like a stout.BEST ANSWER: I would shoot for around 2 -2.4 depending on your preference for carbonation level in your beer. Any where in that range would be appropriate. Let us know if we can help further!Instructions say a few days before brew day to punch the liquid yeast pack. Will the yeast be ok if done 2 or 3 days before brew day? Can yeast be ready after 2 days?
