Three Falls Blonde Ale
This was another of my experiments with Cascade hops. I bottled it on 7/17/12 after 2 weeks primary, and 1 in secondary. With a twist of lime, this beer tastes like a Corona (a yummy bohemian Corona with 5.5ABV and 32IBU). Even my "non-beer drinking" wife likes it (nice). With a 30 minute boil and dumping all the fermentable in at the start of the boil, it was super easy to make. Head retention could be better; maybe 8oz of maltodextrin (vice 4oz)? Also, it did ferment out pretty low, but for this style of beer it seems to work.
