Postmark Brewing Co. – Blonde Ale Review
The beer that has defined Postmark Brewing Company most since their opening is their Blonde Ale. Sold in 6 packs of the unique, blue can the Blonde Ale is a session choice for any day. The Postmark Blonde is the first beer to be tweaked and re-released since brewmaster Dominic Giraldes took the reigns of the brewery. The beer was not re-invented but merely tweaked to the preferred profile of Dominic. Pouring the can into a glass the beer appears as a yellow-straw colour and has two full fingers of head that settles leaving a nice film of lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is malt forward with a mellow sweetness, light floral aroma and a grassy like-tone. The flavour is rather light with a moderately light body. The malty nature of the beer gives a light sweetness while grassy flavour gives a fresh tone that leads up to a lightly spiced and bitter finish. The IBUs are rated at 18 but the bitterness on the finish seems slightly bitter. Don’t get me wrong this is not a bitter beer but a bitter note does linger on the tongue and give a nice finish to the beer. The Postmark Blonde Ale is exactly as it should be, light, drinkable, refreshing and extremely crushable.
