COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beach Bum is an all-malt American blonde ale, which draws its deep golden color from the finest pale and caramel roasted barley malts. This beer is dry hopped with the choicest imported Alsace and Hallertau hops as well as Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest, which lend to its pleasant hop aroma and its slightly spicy and fruity taste.

MarkBarnes (375) - Waterville, New York, USA - DEC 30, 2010
Dec. 30, 2010; 12 oz. bottle. Orange/lemon flavored summer ale. Not much aroma, and the flavor is mild. Pretty inoffensive, and could actually be a decent "lawnmower" beer.

The beer pours a clear golden color with a white head. The aroma is orange citrus with some biscuit malt. Somewhat surprisingly, the beer doesn’t smell bad at all. The flavor is not as good as the smell. While I get a little bit of biscuit malt as well as some orange and pine notes, the overall flavor is very faint. The beer is very watery and has medium carbonation. There is just really not much too this beer. Not one to seek out.

On tap, pours a clear yellow color with a thin white head, aroma has a nice fruit touch with lemon and zest, the taste is overall sweet but bland and not complex, overall pretty boring.

Pours hazy yellos with lots of carbonation. Aroma and taste are citrus and grass.

12 oz bottle into English pint. Grainy, citrus powder aroma; lemony. Excellent appearance--pours a medium deep gold hue with a nice, nice rocky head and excellent lacework. Head has long retention. Taste is interesting for this dull style. There are some spice notes: cinnamon, nutmeg (?). Someone put the idea in my head that it tastes like beach sand before I started ranking and I can’t get it out of my head. It does taste a little like beach sand. WTF? Carbonation is medium to high. A little watery. This is one of the most boring styles of beer I feel, but Michelob has made this one stand out a bit from the blonde ale crowd I think. I’m always amazed when those Anheuser-Busch douchebags actually produce something with any merit. This one has some merit I think.

Nice lemon zest aroma. Clear golden, thin head, good lace. Barley malt on the front, lemon zest on the back. Decent offering from ABIB.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Clear, yellow, huge head. Definite hop aroma, but not enough hops in the taste. Slight bitterness in the finish. Kind of a macro with a bit more hops added.

Another beer AB is trying to slip under the radar. Regardless, it wasn’t all that bad. A bit boring, and perhaps a bit confused, and it is a copper colored "Blonde" ale. Cheap and easy, but I highly doubt I’ll revisit it.

omhper (19321) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at Pour 24, Las Vegas, NV. Clear yellow, minimal head. Light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Slight notes of honey, other wise vacuum dominates until it warms slightly and stale butter takes over. Hard and fizzy, dull but somewhat drinkable.

Pale yellow pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is light with an equally light body and flavor.
