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.

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.

bhensonb (10983) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Brassy gold color with a decent white head. Sort of a grassy hop aroma over mild pale malt. Thin to medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt and mild noble hop. Not much spice. Finish is pretty bland. Obviously A-B skimped on ingredients, but it’s drinkable. Finishes more like a wheat beer than a malt beer. It’s ok.

brokensail (10840) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2011
A: The beer pours a golden straw color with a small and short lived white head. S: Matching the appearance of the beer, this one smells strongly of straw. There is a light bread not as well as a healthy dose of corn. Mild yeast and some light, fruity esters. T: The flavor offers up some pale malts to go along with the straw and grass. There is a light hop bitterness to it. Some apple and corn give it more sweetness. M: Light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Surfs up, brah.

Draft. Hazy orange with an average fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate floral citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable summer brew that was better than my expectations.
