COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tybee Island Blonde is a Kölsch style ale. It is a clean, crisp, session beer brewed with noble hops. The Blonde has a light floral aroma and a mild hop bitterness. The agreeable nature of this German style ale means that it will get along well with many foods, but you have to pick a dish that won’t overwhelm it. Being that we are on the coast, we suggest you start by pairing it with some seafood!

Poured clear from a can (not listed as a contract brew but the can says it is). Light floral aroma. Nice head and good lacing all the way to completion. A bit bitter for a Kolsch but I like it. Easy drinker, could put a few of these away without knowing.

12oz can. Clear, gold color. White froth. Aroma of corn meal, pale grains, straw/hay. Crisp taste. Flavor of straw, pale malts, earthy hay-like bitterness. A very nice blonde. Very refreshing. Medium bodied. Another superb beer from Coastal Empire. (3977)

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2014
On tap at the Distillery. Pours a clear light orange with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malts, light fruits, peach, spicy hops. Flavor of bready malt, tons of spices I can’t quite place, light bitter hops, light fruits. An interesting and different kolsch, I quite liked this one. 7/4/7/4/15 (3.7/5)

finn1918 (198) - Georgia, USA - JUL 21, 2014
$9.79 six pack from a Bi-Lo on Hilton Head Island, SC. Pours a hazy dark gold with an explosive white head that slowly falls to a few permanent lumps atop the beer. Aroma is weak--malts and some yeast. Taste is sweet malts, butter, vanilla, some nuts with a yeasty and crisp finish. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth. This is well within the style guidelines, being refreshing, easy to drink, and forgettable. Worth a tick if you’re in the area.

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 13, 2013
End part of a 12oz bottle, shared by the group. Mildly hazy golden color. Minimal white head and lace. Nice floral hop in the nose. Little orange zest. Light to medium body. Light carbonation. Zesty sweet taste. Pretty good golden. Definitely better than expected, especially for a can that’s been sitting around open for a bit, which I got the end part of.

unclemike (2309) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Pours a clear golden with a sudsy white foamy head. Lightly nutty aroma, sweet malty, a bit creamy full, some vanilla. Flavor is a bit chalky and yeasty, seemingly wheaty, touch of honey, fairly dry. Crisp body, a bit gritty, smaller soda carbonation.

b3shine (5856) - Indiana, USA - APR 25, 2013
Bottle to taster from notes (shared by brew3crew). Looks good; a semi-transparent blondish-orange with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes doughy with some floral hop notes. Good on the palate with a little snap too. Solid for the style.

PorterPounder (5713) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Savannah, Ga - Piggly Wiggly - 12 oz can. Pours a hazy dark golden with a pillowy snow white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma has a hint of mineral water, light floral notes. Flavor has a bit of a light fruity tone to it with hints of apricots. some light buttery notes make up the back end with a light hint of white grapes. Somewhat refreshing. Thick enough mouthfeel.

chinchill (2148) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 9, 2013
12 ounce can canned on 12/31/12. Thanks Brandon! Pours a slightly hazy pale amber with white head of moderate size and duration. Aroma is strong and hoppy for style, with a mainly herbal/grassy character. Taste is more citrusy, and more appealing than the aroma. Not as hoppy as the aroma suggested but still high hops for style. Refreshing and easy to drink.
