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!

Very nice kit. Worked well. Smells great!
It sure wasn't very BLONDE but it sure brewed up nicely.
Kind of taste like water it definitely was not like the pitcher pitchered cloor was way darker than it said it was supposed to be I probably wouldn’t buy this again
This Irish blonde is a medium to light body brew with the right amount of hops to put the sweetness at bay. I visited Ireland in 1993 and got a taste of my first beer made outside of the U.S. and it was a blonde. Best beer I ever tasted. This kit is almost an exact duplicate of that beer I had in Ireland. This Irish Blonde is one of those types of beer that you want after a good meal that won't bloat you up. A good social drink even on a hot day.
