This beer, Sugar Cookie, is a Sugar Cookie-inspired Blonde Ale from Sugar Creek Brewing Company. This Christmas Blonde ale is from Charlotte, North Carolina. It weighs in at 8% ABV. I believe this beer is a seasonal-only offering. This beer pours a golden color with two fingers’ white heads. The head fades steadily into a thin halo of bubbles. The aroma is sweet with spices/sugar. The flavor is not far off from its smell. There is sweetness, sugar creaminess, and spices, and its had a smooth overall flavor. Then it comes to a sugar cookie finish. Yes, that is right, it passes over your tongue, and it all comes together and tastes like a sugar cookie. The aftertaste is like eating a delicious sugar cookie that lingers until the next sip. This Sugar Creek Brewing Company Sugar Cookie is an A. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer and would recommend you do the same. It is not heavy and has a nice holiday touch without weighing you down. It’s good throughout an entire pint. I would surely go back to it for this beer. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Boone Creek Blonde from Appalachian Mountain Brewery in Boone, North Carolina, is zested with orange and has a hint of Wildflower honey. This beer is 4.9% ABV. This beer pours a light orange color with a one-and-a-half finger white quick head. The aroma is orangey, sweet from the honey. The flavor is sweet honey, a big orange flavor that is candy-like. There also is a light hoppy note. The mouthfeel is light. But almost medium feeling. Then this Blonde beer finishes with a sweet orange flavor. Then comes an aftertaste of honey and orange with a hint of a hoppy noted that lingers. The hoppy note fades away quickly as the big honey/orange stays. This ale is not terrible, but I don’t think I could have more than one or one and a half. The flavor is good. It just becomes slightly overwhelming as you finish a can of Boone Creek. That is why it only gets as low as B-. It’s not bad enough that I would pass it up, but I would if I were having a growler of it. Please be kind, stay safe, and remember to enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Then this blonde ale finishes crisp and clean with a light fruited flavor. Then you come to a crisp aftertaste of bread and grains. This ale is an easy-drinking beer. You could have many of these. This beer would be good on the hot golf course. The flavor is just right and doesn’t overpower your tastebuds. I give Something Cold an A. It has all the deliciousness with none of the filler. I recommend you try it! Please be kind, stay safe and remember to enjoy! Cheers!
I am not the biggest fan of blueberry ales. This is Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale, 5% ABV. This is the last of the verity of Field Party Blonde Ales I have. This particular Field Party beer pours a golden color with a one finger fizzy white head that fades real quick. The aroma is big sweet fresh blueberries. The blueberries pretty much mask any other notes. The taste is sweet with blueberries and a very little bready note. The mouthfeel is light. The aftertaste is blueberry with little bits of bready notes. The aftertaste is like container that had blueberries left in it. There is a sweetness to the aftertaste but it not very strong. Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale wasn’t so bad. I’d say its a B-. It didn’t taste of artificial blueberries like some blueberry beers. But it hasn’t changes how I feel about blueberry ales. I mean a stout with blueberries is okay, but not in anyother styles. I would go for this again soon, but not too soon. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Georgia Beer Co. in Valdosta, Goergia brewer this blonde ale and brews a few of the same beer that have different fruits in them. Putting fruits into a blonde ale is a common thing in craft brewing.

This Appalachian Mountain Brewery Boone Creek Blonde, 4.9% ABV was brought over by my neighbors for the Super Bowl. This blonde ale is brewed in Boone, North Carolina, and is a Great American Beer Festival award winner. It pours out a golden color into the glass with a one-and-a-half-finger white head that is somewhat quick to fade into itself. The aroma is slightly biscuity with some honey and a light hop aroma. Taste is a little similar to its aroma. There is a honey-sweet note that is followed by a light biscuity note with a light hoppy flavor. It has a smooth flavor as well and finishes smooth and crisp. The aftertaste is a sweet yet slightly hoppy flavor that does not stay, but it does draw you into another refreshing sip. This has all the average aromas and flavor of your typical Blonde ale with just a hint of hoppy. I say that Appalachian Mountain Brewery Boone Creek Blonde is not bad and it’s a C+ beer, above average. There wasn’t any sort of flavors that aren’t your typical Blonde al flavors which is good.

Cabarrus Brewing Co. Cabarrus Cotton Blonde Ale, 4.7% is not so far from me in Concord, North Carolina. Cabarrus is the county in which Concord is. This blonde ale is a cream ale. Cabarrus Cotton pours gold with a two-finger semi-quick fading head. There is a slightly sweet fruity aroma to it, but it thin at best. The favor is semi-sweet with some slight fruit flavor. There is a metallic note that comes along on the back of your tongue. The flavors on this cream ale is a thin and bit week. The mouthfeel is light. Cabarrus Cotton finishes with off-putting metallic flavors. It has no real aftertaste. It just ends once you swallow this awful beer. With that said, I give Cabarrus Brewing Co. Cabarrus Cotton Blonde Ale an F+. It starts fine for two seconds in your mouth, then quickly gets worse as it passes through your mouth and over your tongue, and ends with terrible taste. I wouldn’t go for this if I were you. It’s not a cream ale, in my opinion. Yes, it has some sweet notes, but it has fruity notes, which aren’t cream ale flavors. Metallic flavors a certainly not in a cream ale, let alone any beer. Please stay safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Over Thanksgiving, my Aunt brought Coop Ale Works Honey Toad Blonde, 5.3% ABV from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This beer, brewed with Noble Hops, Two-row, and Pilsner malt. Horny Toad pours an orange color with a thin one and a quarter white head that quickly recedes into itself. The aroma is nice, clean, and crisp with a sweet fruity note and a light bitterness. It smells more sugary than you think it would. Taste is crisp, slightly bitter, and sweet with a fruity like flavor with a refreshing mouthfeel and finishes with a bittersweet flavor. There is less bitterness in the aftertaste and more sweet notes there. Coop Ale Works Horny Toad Blonde is a good beer, but it’s sweet than some blonde ales I’ve had, and I give it a B-. The sweet notes of this beer weren’t terrible. I found those sweet notes to be slightly overpowering to the other flavors as the little number of bitter notes. It is a good beer that is worth trying. I would be glad to have it again. Please stay safe and enjoy responsibly. Cheers!
Went out to a new local Butcher shop purchase a few items such as Armor Artis Brewing Sospeso Coffee Blonde Ale, 6.6% ABV. This is coffee blonde is brewed not far from me down in Fort Mill, South Carolina, dry-hopped with Ethiopian coffee beans from Sospeso Coffee Roasted in Waxhaw, North Carolina. Sospeso pours a brown copper color with a two finger bright sightly rocky white head that stedily fades with slightly roasted sweet coffee and coca aromas. Taste is lightly roasted with some coffee and a faint coca note and it has a very light and very faint bitter note that shows up in the back of the mouth with a meduim mouthfeel that finish with a bitter roasted note and an aftertaste that is roasted with coffee and slight hint of coca with a slight linger of bitterness. Now I have had better Coffee Blonde ales than Armor Artis Brewing Sospeso Coffee Blonde Ale. It not much of a blonde ale by the looks of it. I give Armor Artis Brewing Sospeso Coffee Blonde Ale a D+. It has a strange bitterness that isn’t a coffee like bitterness and it to much like a brown al with coffee. I would not try Armor Artis Brewing Sospeso Coffee Blonde Ale, instead I would have Wooden Robot Brewing Good Morning Vietnam, that is turly blonde and has a more subtle but great cooffe flavor that intertwines well with the blonde. Please stay safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
