Propeller Summer Blonde Lagered Ale
Propeller Brewing Company has released their latest One Hit Wonder series brew – Summer Blonde Lagered Ale. Weighing in at a modest 4.8%ABV and 22 IBU’s, Summer Blonde Lagered Ale is a light bodied, refreshing beer that has high drinkability. Wheat, Pale and Pilsner malts give this ale its distinctive smooth, creamy body. Just enough Centennial hops were added to this brew to perfectly balance its bready finish. After a week of fermentation this ale has been Lagered at a cool temperature for 3 weeks to give a clean crisp finish.
The colour of pale lager ranges from light bronze to nearly transparent and the alcohol anywhere from 4-6%. Adjunct usage may be quite high, though in some cases the beer is all-malt. Carbonation is typically forced, though not always. One thing that doesnt vary is that neither the malt nor the hops make much of an impression on the palate. These beers are brewed for minimum character, though faint traces of hop or malt may show through. More likely though is that adjuncts like corn will show through, or youll find notes of higher alcohols (fuel notes) due to the use of high-gravity brewing. The body will be thin and watery, and the finish is typically non-existent.
