Barrage Balloon

Honey Blonde Ale
ABV 5.0% IBU 23.5

This honey blonde is one of our light summer ales.  We wanted a beer that was on the lighter side and so when we looked to match this to our brand we quickly settled on the barrage balloon.  The barrage balloons were used all over London to create a hazard for the German bombers to prevent them from being able to fly low over the city and release their payloads directly on key targets.  They were filled with helium and were each named to allow local recognition, but to confuse the enemy if communications were intercepted.

Tasting Notes: This honey blonde is light and refreshing with an earthy hop flavor.  The malts are light and toasty with a distinct honey profile that keeps it refreshing and on the lighter side.
