I'm becoming a fan of Parkway Brewing, my neighbors down the road in Salem. Their Bridge Builder Blond is a Belgian style ale, and it pours hazy, golden brown. The head fades and leaves no lace, but a tenacious little ring along the rim. The aroma is the usual for a Belgian; bananas, peaches and mild cloves atop a buttery malt. The flavor brings that malt to the foreground and it closes with a nice, peppery tingle. Tasty.
