Three Beaches Honey Blonde Ale 5% ABV
American Blonde Ale
Tyranena Brewing Co.
A most aptly named brew, Three Beaches Honey Blonde is. The beer looks the color of honey when poured into a glass. It has a nice clean front which flows immediately into a not but subtle honey flavor. It isn’t too sweet like many ciders can be, or honey whiskeys for that matter. It has just the right touch of honey flavor to accentuate the blonde ale taste. Wow, it is very light and crisp. It’s an exceptional brew to enjoy on a hot summer day, especially when one is at the beach. Whether it is a lake beach, an ocean beach or the “beach” of your yard as you sit on the patio, this beer is most ideal. It is far from filling; in fact it feels even lighter than say a Miller Lite. The hint of honey doesn’t linger and even dissipates as you make your way through the glass, just encouraging you to have another. With the reasonable 5% ABV you can knock back a few of these while hanging out, with no worries of over doing it. The only downside I’m experiencing with the review of this beer is that I have now finished the glass and do not have another bottle to crack open. This is the first beer I’ve tried from the Tyranena brewery and I’m now looking forward to their Bitter Woman IPA I have a bottle of.
“The legend of Tyranena (pronounced Tie*rah*nee*nah) began long ago, in a time before history was written. Legend tells of a foreign tribe that built a series of stone structures and effigy mounds on the edge of a lake they called Tyranena. Today, those structures lie preserved deep under the waters of Rock Lake. No one knows for sure who built them, the purposes they served, how and why they are now submerged, or even the meaning of the word Tyranena.”
Talk about a great legend to name a brewery after, and the pyramids are actually real. I might just have to make a trip up to Lake Mills, Wisconsin one of these days to tour the brewery and Rock Lock to catch a glimpse of the now aquatic pyramids.
