Pizza Port Grandview Picmonkey

Grandview

 

Pizza Port

San Diego

Style: Blonde Ale

Alcohol: 5.2%

Serving Style: Cans and kegs (our sample from draft)

Availability: Good distribution in California, limited beyond

Appearance:   “Light golden in color. It has a fast-dissipating head. There’s not much visible carbonation.”

Aroma:   “Very faint. It’s beer, I guess.”

Taste:   “That appearance of only slight carbonation is borne out in the taste. Maybe that’s the way the brewer wants it, but on a hot day like this it seems somehow less satisfying than it could be.

Food Affinity:   “Well, if it isn’t a great thirst-quencher on a warm afternoon, it still might be a good beverage to pour at the table. I can see drinking this with a French onion soup (the kind with the domed crust on top) or enjoying it with some deviled eggs while watching a ball game on TV.”
