Description:"Our deceptively drinkable golden summer seasonal is a crisp, clean-tasting, cold lagered ale. This frosty thirst quencher is the perfect accompaniment to summer adventures." — Pyramid Brewing Co.
The tasting: Medium golden, slightly hazy, with light effervescence, and a white head that dissipated fairly slowly. Aroma of biscuit malts and spicy hops. Although this is an ale, the aroma reminds me of a pilsner lager. Flavor mirrors the aroma. It leans towards the malty side, but without sweetness. Curve Ball is light to medium bodied, has a light bubbly mouth feel throughout the taste, and finishes dry with cereal malt. Very little bitterness throughout.
Rating: 3 star. Good. I would drink this again if someone gives it to me. Curve Ball is a solid, but unremarkable Blonde Ale. If you like your beer slightly malty with little hop flavor and bitterness, give it a try this season. It's available through July.
