Townsite Brewing Inc. – Zunga Blonde Ale Review
According to Townsite Brewery the word Zunga has two official meanings:
(zung-ga) n. 1. a word peculiar to Powell River meaning rope swing, esp. over water; 2. A delicious golden blonde ale.
If you don’t come from Powell River you may tend towards the second definition of being a delicious golden blonde ale. Pouring with a relatively thing 1.5 fingers of head the truthfully labelled golden colour ale smells of toasted malt, caramel and a slight bitterness. When this blonde ale touches your tongue it starts off crisp and light before building into a smooth, mid-sweet body. The light and malty beer has a slight bitter finish that balances any sweetness making for an easy drinking, enjoyable beer for the spring or summer. The Townsite Brewing hand of beers is stacked and starting to make its presence known through more and more retailers so keep an eye out and pick up a few next time you see them!
