So the Blonde Ale I brewed up for Thanksgiving was shared with family for the holiday and I didn’t have time to write up a post until now.
Appearance: Golden in color. A tiny bit of haze – I think it needs to cold condition a bit. White head.
Aroma: Bready malt. A little sweetness.
Taste: Yeah, you can really taste the Magnum hops. Earthy and bitter. Some fruitiness. No real maltiness present. Finishes clean
Mouthfeel: Medium body, a nice softness to it.
Overall: The homegrown Magnum hops are something I can use again. Next time, I will use them as a bittering hop and feel pretty confident that I can match the amounts called for in a recipe with my homegrown ones.
I think my camera makes the beers look darker than they are:
