COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dallas Blonde 5.2% 23 IBUs Citrusy balanced session ale What does it mean to be a Dallas Blonde? Sounds like a loaded question. So load it up did, with citrusy and floral American hops, Pale, Vienna and Wheat malts. Yielding a delicately balanced, and shimmering golden ale. To us, it just goes down easy. Style: American Blonde Ale Hops: Summit and/or Bravo, Glacier, Palisade, Meridian Malts: Pale Ale, Vienna, White Wheat Yeast: English Ale

Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a clear gold with a large white head that lasts through out the beer and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet grain and bread with a bit of grass and nuttiness. Flavor has lots of grain and hay notes with just a hint of grassiness.

Golden color (appropriately) in the glass with a white head. Subtle but pleasing floral hop aroma, reminds me of noble hops. Nice balance, quite sessionable. Clean finish. Nothing overly exotic about this but it is a very solid session offering.

Nothing exciting about this beer but the can. it has a nice crisp taste and feel but it seems a little flat in flavor. Nice can and totally drinkable.

Can given to me from a friend. Pours into my tulip glass all head and then some. Taking a while to get this into liquid form jeez. Once the head dissipates we have a hazy golden color with still lots of fluffy white head on top. Aroma of very light pale malts, some floral hops, dry, with little sweetness in the nose. Flavor is hay, a hint of floral hop, nearly no malt backbone, and a slightly dirty finish. Light bodied as would be expected from a session beer with lower carbonation than I expected. Overall a mediocre brew but inoffensive and seems like something that a larger group would enjoy at a cookout.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a hazy pale gold with an inch of off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, grass, grains, hay, and minerals. Flavor is the same, with some light fruitiness. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel that leans a little grassy and earthy. Not bad.

12oz can, thanks to DanielCoor. Mostly hazy golden orange color. Pours with a big, tall thick white head, that retains well and leaves plenty thick lace. Very big citrusy and floral hop aroma, very impressively big flavor for a blonde, very hoppy... But a bit more bite than I’d like from a blond, too. Sweeter than I’d like, big zest, light bitter, light acidity in the finish. Medium to bigger body, tastes bigger than you’d expect from 5.2. That may be a result of the very light carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Flavor is impressive, but palate hinders drinkability a little. Kind of spicy. Solid blond - impressively big flavor and taste for the style. Doesn’t go down as easy as advertised, though. Also, I wish there was a canning date to be found on this can, but alas...

Dallas blondes go down easy. Extremely floral and aromatic. This smelly bonde is sweet, orange, rine, light and carbonated. Great session beer. For its class, I think this is a great beer.

Surprised to see this one rated so low; I really enjoyed it. Had it from a seemingly-fresh can at the brewery on Halloween night as part of their jam-packed Halloween evening. Poured a very hazy gold, can’t see through it in the light. Easy to drink, crisp. A little bit on the American hops, very easy to drink. Very nice beer, right up my alley.

Can. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy, pollen and floral notes. Flavor is grainy, floral hops, bready and sweet. Not bad. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can:   Straw, on the darker side, faint haze, tiny white head, virtually no lacing.   Wheaty nose, even a touch spicy.   Also has a faint floral and citrusy aroma.   Similar on the tongue, albeit a bit softer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Pale citrusy bitterness lingers after the finish.   This one seems to have more character than most, more citrus bits, with that wheaty body.   Enjoyable.   Thanks Bill!
