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.

wildbeercat (338) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUN 23, 2013
12 fl oz / 355mL bottle into a pint glass. Served cold. Aroma: Honey! Honey is really obvious. There’s a mild spiciness I can’t place. Light malt. Very mild hop aroma. Appearance: Slightly hazy dark gold with a lingering foamy white head. Taste: Nice honey sweetness and fresh bread-y malt. Simple, but really quite pleasant! Palate: Light bodied, flavors don’t persist very much. Overall: Hometown beer! Woohoo! Very nice brew for people who are getting into craft beer for the first time, and it’s very good for someone who’s been into craft beer a while. Really refreshing on a hot day. Love it.

Flavorful yet a little homebrewed tasting blonde. A little funky. Dark amber for a blonde ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 13, 2013
Pours a blonde yellow color with a floral aroma. Taste is very simple without any complexity, clean but a little boring.

Caytinator (809) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2013
12oz bottle. Dark amber color, hazy, smallish head, good lacing. Aroma is definitely of finishing hops. One of those odd beers where the taste doesn’t match the aroma. Mild, but not to a fault. Tastes like hops but doesn’t bite. Herbal, too. It’s unique, distinctive, and well-rounded.

ClubGonzo (3509) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a milky wit-like straw yellow body with a small white head. Nose is mild grainy wheat-like tones, citric peel and hints of grass. OK, but very mild. Taste is grainy citric peel tones, which fade into some rather bitter grassy notes towards the end of the palate. Fresh, with a thin body and moderate carbonation, but I long for a bit more in taste for this to be a good session ale.

finn1918 (190) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Pours a slightly hazy gold with about a finger of white head that leaves a thin coating on the glass. Aroma is crisp malts and orange. Taste is very light and malty, with some slight hop bitterness to balance it. Some honey in there, too. Overall just kind of odd... not bitter enough to be a pale ale or pilsner, but not really light enough to be a blonde ale. Interesting, but disappointing.

On draught. Pours a deep gold with fine bubbles and a white head. Medium body. Mellow hop bitterness. Slight hop-over-malt flavor balance. Not very carbonated. soft maltiness. Nice summer beer.

PorterPounder (5192) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Slightly murky, medium golden pour, sticky, medium thick white head. Aroma of vanilla and a bit of honey. Flavor leans to the sweet side with some vanilla notes, a brief touch of yeast, some cracker-like breadiness. Mouthfeel is just thick enough. Had better blondes - label is quite intriguing!

11/1/12. 12oz bottle thanks to the guys at Five Points in Valdosta! They’re giving me samples even though I only go there once a week! Light blond pour with a small off-white head. Very little aroma or flavor, to be honest. There are touches of pale malts, biscuit, and a hint of butter. Eh.
