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

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, canít 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.

On tap @ the brewery. Dull golden brew with a good amount of white head. Grassy hops, citrus, and biscuit malt aromas. Lots of flavor but easy drinking - sweet malts and orange. I am usually not a fan of blondes but this is great. Not at all thin or grainy.

Slight hazy gold. Smell is fruity yeast. Pleasant nose. Taste is clean, bready smooth, refreshing. Light body and light carbonation. Very nice blonde.

Mora2000 (5856) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 4, 2012
On tap at the brewery. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The first things to come through in the aroma are biscuit malt and a hint of grass. I also get a bit of orange citrus, but it is subtle. The flavor is a bit different. The toffee and biscuit malt notes add some nice sweet character, which is complimented by the orange and grass notes from the hops. There is also an earthy character in the flavor which is quite nice. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Pours a hazy yellow/gold with soft white head. Aroma is floral and biscuit. Flavor is very nice, some light citrus, hints of fruity esters, biscuit with a pleasant light lemon grass. Light, soft mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation. Overall, great beer for this Texas heat.

swanmann (629) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 5, 2013
From the can: itís just darker than golden, clear, with a moderate amount of egg shell colored foam that hangs for a few moments, leaves no real lacing. Itís got a gentle citrus aroma, lemony with some grass and hay, barnyard funk and some caramel. Itís malty and caramelly, gently sweet and bready with some toasty bread crust bitterness. Finishes smooth. Itís really a well balanced blonde. Sometimes I think theyíre a bit too funky, or similar to lagers which are not my favorite. This is great.

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.

Can to pint glass. No born on or best by date. Tons of orange and citrus in the nose. Taste more like a wheat than a blonde. Finish is clean and refreshing. Excellent beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

(draught) rich gold, effervescent body, thick white head. Nose of cereal, lager yeast, nice blend of hops, light citrus. Taste of light honey, clean lager yeast, fresh grain, light citrus blend, carbonation is a bit artificial but works in this beer. Clean and refreshing. This is what most BMC drinkers need to experience.
