Irish Blonde Extract 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!

Delicious. Perfect for hot days. Crisp, refreshing, no bitter hops, nice easy malt - I have been mixing mine with lemonade to make a shandy and it's absolutely delicious. Color is definitely a little orange, which is why we are calling it the Bottle Blonde...EXTREMELY active fermentation, needed the blowoff tube. Enjoy!
tried the Irish Blonde on request from a friend. Brewed up fine, fast fermentation--very active overnight--with dry yeast. Smooth with good body and nice carbonation (bottled).
the batch I made came out really good. I shared it and the guys want more of it. will definitely make it again. thanks NB
Very nice kit. Worked well. Smells great!
It sure wasn't very BLONDE but it sure brewed up nicely.
