“Not Just any Blonde” The Kern River flows into Lake Isabella less then one mile south of Kernville, Ca. This Blonde Ale has an easy malt body and a mild hop aroma produced by traditional English hops. The light straw color and crisp finish make this an easy drinking beer that’s great for those hot summer days. If you are looking for great taste and good times, don’t settle for just any blonde, choose Isabella Blonde!

appearance is yellow with a really nice tight pillowy head that laces. aroma is noble hops bread malts and biscuit. Taste is nose with little bitterness and a toasty malt backend. Palate is thin and dry which is on style for me making it refreshing. Overall it’s a nice blonde. Not the greatest style and certainly not my favorite style but good for what it is supposed to be and rated as such.

From bomber to pint glass. Overt grainy cereal and slight huskiness about it. Slightly hazy yellow with white head. Bready and cereal flavor as well.

Ontape (471) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber. Pours a hazy piss, no better way to say it. Aroma has light grains, malts, maybe some corn? Taste is better with some Euro hop notes and a fairly long bitter finish. More hop character as it warms a bit. It’s been alright Isabella, but we could have been so much more...

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow hued pour with a small white head. Aromas are malty, toasty and bready with a very light ester and a bit of marmalade and herbal hops. Flavors show a nice malt structure, bready and toasty. Some fuggles like hop character. Finish is a bit flabby and not as crisp as I would like. Medium carbonation, off dry.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Pour is transparent golden yellow with a tight foamy white head. Nose is solid, fresh grain, faint dough, solid hop presence being fairly grassy with a light spice to it with a touch of lemon. Taste is decent, the grain presence is a bit lighter, flavors are slightly muted and less integrated. Hops are herbal and grassy, spice is a touch stronger as is the lemon. Finish is highly carbonated with a light lingering bitterness and light body.
