COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Balance" is the key description for this smooth and refreshing Southwestern-style Blonde Ale. Nimbus Dirty Güera is brewed with the finest domestic pale malts and world-class Cara-Pils and Munich malts. Our use of select Perle and German Hallertau hops lends to the beer’s pleasant floral nose: low in fruitiness and mild in ester production. This combination produces a light, clean and crisp balance between malts and hops. Our Blonde’s subtle sweet undertones are derived from pure mesquite-flavored "killer-bee" honey that is harvested from hives in Bisbee, Arizona.

12 oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert. Pours gold with a slight haze, big white head that leaves quickly. Sour, grainy corny nose. Not a good sign. Nice lace. Very light flavor. Very. Mild sweet malt, a touch of light spice and a hint of honey. The thing here is LIGHT. Nimbus has better offerings.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Bottle from trade with cbkschubert! Poured a hazy orange with a thin white head that quickly dissipated. The aroma found sour citrus and grain. The flavor was of fruits, spices, and citrus with a slight caramel background. Light but almost creamy. Not bad. Thanks Craig!!

Pour was hazy amber with basically no head and little lacing. The aroma was a little off with some light hops the only thing beer-like to it. The flavor was quite a surprise for a "blonde ale," as this one had a lot to it. Nice caramel malts in the flavor, some honey, spices (somewhat festbier-like), and a nicely hopped (floral) balance to it. Came across somewhat like a lager, crisp and low in ale flavor "noise." Very impressed, but this can’t really be a "blonde" ale. I’d change the classification if I could only figure out what it really is. A great grab from my last AZ trip in any event.

decaturstevo (4869) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAY 18, 2006
A light orange/gold color. An aroma of malt and very light fruitiness. A flavor of sweet malt and a tinge of bitter that last and isn’t overbearing. A decent beer but the light alcohol is just too light. I could drink many of them even with my low tolerance for alc. I would call it an excellent middle of the day beer.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Good looking beer, a nice little head, with some carbonation, not the best looksing beer i’ve seen. The aroma just isnt quite right, if you ask me. ITs lemony, dirty/sweraty socks, skunky, and unrine, vanillla. the taste is biscuty/vanilla wafers, hops, grass, citrus, lemon.

kramer (4857) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 4, 2006
12 oz bottle, via FlacoAlto. Pours a slightly hazy golden colored body under a one finger fizzy white head. Light lemony hop and crystal malt aroma with a little citrus fruitiness. Flavor is light as well with a smack of lemony citrus over a delicate malt base. Very light bodied and refreshing on the palate with a lively fizzy carbonation. A fairly refreshing beer if nothing else, one that might rate quite well amongst the "lawnmower" style beers.

Nice golden color with amber tones. Smells of banana esters. Very thin mouth with lingering skunky aftertaste. Average.

12 oz bottle via trade with FlacoAlto. Thanks Sebastian! Pours blonde just as the name would suggest with a creamy white head that stays well and laces pretty good down the sides of the glass. Aroma is of light hay hops, a bit of apple, and some light malts mixed with honey. Flavor is fruity. Notes of apple, pears, and some light grains and some honey finishes well with the floral hops. Palate is light and airy. This is quite drinkable. This is the last of the 6 pack of mixed brews from this brewer and I can honestly say that I enjoyed them all. Thanks FlacoAlto for giving me a chance to try these!! I’ve enjoyed them all.

beerguy101 (5277) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 4, 2005
12oz bottle. Apple juice gold color, slightly hazy. Small sized white foamy head, with minimal lacing. Aroma is mild fruity and sweet. A medium to light bodied gold/blond ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. Tastes a little like a dry apple juice, yet still has some malt character. This is a below average brew pub standard blond ale. It more drinkable than a BMC but only just. A little thin and watery and bland. Not a very good effort from Nimbus on this one sorry to say. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet,
