Port Rexton Brewing Company Baycation Blonde – Blond Ale at 4.7% ABV

Port Rexton Brewing Company Baycation Blonde Blond Ale at 4.7% ABV (C$7.83 at Port Rexton Brewing Company, 950 ml, no packaging date or best before, acquired 25-Aug-2018, reviewed 25-Aug-2018)

Appearance: hazy straw with a short, short-lived white head, no lacing. (3/5) Aroma: mild, citrus, grainy malt, Belg-ish dusty esters, light DMS. (6/10) Taste: moderate sweet, low bitter. (6/10) Palate: moderate-light body, low carbonation, off-dry short finish. (3/5)

I don’t usually give grief for low carbonation on a growler fill, but this one was filled at their retail outlet less than two hours ago. I’m sure it would be better with higher carbonation but as it stands it drops off a bit flat and watery. The hint of sulphur on the nose isn’t helping much, either. All in all, a pretty unremarkable Blond. (12/20)
