Irish Blonde All Grain Beer Recipe Kit
Rather like a foreign stout without any roasted barley; or an overhopped albino Irish red. This creamy-textured, straw-gold ale offers up suggestions of buttered toast, warm cereal, and a trace of fruity, herbal hops.
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!

This was an exceptional beer. I say "was" as it's already gone! 5 gallons (all grain kit, put in a keg) disappeared really fast- everyone who tried went back for more. It had a bit of a butter or even butterscotch flavor with a hint of hop at the finish. We will do this one again.
One of my favorites
A real crowd pleaser, this one goes fast. Light and refreshing but lots of flavor from the malt. I plan to keep brewing this one. I already ordered a second kit.
Beer came out just as expected! Not sure what makes it an "Irish" blonde really, but it's in the arena with other Belgian Blondes on the market I would say and was a pretty easy beer to execute. I'd recommend it!
Thank you for packaging the ingredients in separate bags. This made my life real easy! Grains were for 2 different recipes! Aroma was perfect, "crush" was as anticipated. Can't wait to get it in the process to try it?
