Big River Brewing Co. – Sidewheeler Blonde Ale Review

The Big River Brewing Company’s Blonde Ale is straw coloured with two fingers of creamy looking head. The top settles fairly slowly left clinging to the glass. Smelling this beer it is mild with a light citrus malt. The taste in this mild brew is light and easy drinking. Starting off crisp, a hop bitterness grows leaving the tongue leaving an aftertaste that is fairly bitter for a blonde. Being slightly more bitter than your average blonde a light citrus softens the taste and makes for an easy drinking and very enjoyable ale.
