Our 951 Blonde Ale Scores BIG!
Our 951 Blonde Ale received a rating of 94 from Beer Connoisseur.
The 951 Blonde Ale is a golden-hued, well balanced beer that is crisp and most refreshing. Its smooth malt character makes this beer very approachable and easy to drink in any situation.
Expert Judge, Randy Scorby, had a few words to say about it.
"951 Blonde Ale by Garage Brewing Co. is being evaluated as a Blonde Ale (Category 18A) from the 2015 BJCP Style Guidelines.
951 Blonde Ale pours a bright gold with brilliant clarity and a thick, creamy white head that makes it very inviting. The initial grainy, bready malt aroma slowly gives way to a floral hop aroma with a hit of lemon zest. A hint of stone fruit esters develops as the beer warms and vents. The overall aroma is clean, fresh and bright. The flavor follows with a moderate grainy malt character that lingers with a light floral hop flavor. Light residual sweetness develops in the middle, eventually giving way to a medium-dry finish. Low hop bitterness emerges mid-palate and lingers through into the aftertaste, remaining smooth throughout.
This is a crisp, easy-drinkingand well-balanced blonde ale. The medium-light body and the fresh, bright character makes this a very pintable beer to enjoy."

Another great review for our award-winning Peanut Butter Chocolate Milk Stout from Mashing In
"...With that said, the base is more than happy to embrace its chocolate and peanut butter additions to satisfy any and all peanut butter cup cravings you had going into the experience. It is truly the best of both worlds as it supplies those dessert-like flavors and aromas while still remaining highly drinkable."
