Latitude 33 Carolina Honey Hips Strong Blonde Ale (355ml Can)
We’re bringing the Blonde back in a big way. A pale golden color with ample white head, the aroma is floral honey and spicy citrus. The flavor is a light and earthy with a touch of malt sweetness up front accented by a mild citrus tang and noble hop bitterness on the back. The finish is clean and bright. Altogether very drinkable, but be careful — At 8.25% ABV, this blonde is strong enough to make your head swim.
American Strong Ale
Not a style, per se, but the only logical category to incorporate the plethora of strong, stylistically vague beers coming from American micros these days. Some are related to English Strong Ales, but with more hop, while others are ultra-strong variants on the IPA theme. But no matter how varied their origins or characters might be, all are intense, potent, with generous quantities of hops and malt.
