Bent River Mississippi Blonde Ale

This 4.2% ABV blonde ale is from the Bent River Brewery of Rock Island, Illinois. Their motto: "Get Bent!"

The beer pours honey golden in color, just a touch of haze. There is nearly an inch of white foamy head that settles down very quickly. The aroma is slightly sweet malted golden grains. It smells like the air outside a brewery. The taste gives the slightly sweet and malty grain up front, followed by a light floral/fruity note, then hit by a wave of grassy bitterness. The aftertaste is a pleasant amalgam of all the flavors. It has a light to medium mouthfeel with moderate carbonation, as soft as it is crisp. This makes for a very tasty and refreshing blonde ale.
