Niagara’s Best Blonde: A Bombshell of an Ale

Niagara’s Best Blonde from the Syndicate Restaurant and Brewery in Niagara Falls, Ontario pours a clear, if not slightly translucent golden colour, with little in the way of head beyond the initial pour and some moderate lacing. This ale has an aroma that is quite sweet, with hints of corn or corn syrup and toasted rice. It also smells a bit “boozy”, but not in a gross way and has the faintest of citrus notes.

This Ale's Sweet, Creamy Roots are Showing

The mouthfeel of Niagara’s Best Blonde is on the creamy side of thin. It doesn’t feel very carbonated but carries some weight to it. The taste, like the aroma, is very sweet with a toasted malt body and corn syrup-like sweetness. The beer has a pronounced dryness to the finish, giving it some balance and making it relatively refreshing and easy to drink.
