Isle of Arran Brewery Blonde Ale

The Isle of Arran Brewery is in Cladach, Brodick, Isle of Arran, Scotland.

This beer pours a light copper, light orange in color with a very thin head of large, separate bubbles.  There is extensive and fine carbonation coating the sides of the glass.  The aroma is both deep malt grain and fruity at the same time.  There is cherry and a lagerish "funk" together.  The taste is fruity, cherry and raspberry, zesty, almost spicy, with some grain and light bitterness on the finish.  The mouthfeel is somewhat thin, watery and flat despite the apparent carbonation.  Not what I expected from a blonde ale, much more like a very fruity pale ale.
