NoDa CAVU is an American Blonde Ale. This was a trade extra sent recently, thanks Michael! Canned on 9/29/14, opened three weeks later.
Nicely sweet and malty on the nose, nothing over the top, but this is a Blonde Ale after all. The taste is also kind of sweet with a lot of cracker malt and a bit of grass. The hops add a nice amount of citrus like sweetness to this before the light bitterness comes in on the finish.
Easy to drink and rather flavorful for a Blonde Ale. In fact, I can’t really think of a better one I’ve had off the top of my head. Well done, NoDA!
