Haliburton Highlands Brewing (Haliburton ON) Blueline Blonde Ale 5%

Kind of hard to go wild for a « house blonde ale » but this is always a good way of testing a microbrewery.

OO Grade : C+

…But from a microbrewery.

Generic blonde colored beer with a nose that, shall we stay polite, seems absent.  The taste is however raising its cereal hand, so we are pretty sure to have a 100% malt beer, with no adjunct.  Can’t ask for anything else than a yellow (lemon) easy aftertaste which is very simple, too simple in fact.  All in all, served to craft breweries neophytes it might be satisfying but for beer geeks… well at least it is from a microbrewery.
