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.

Found this one to be bland. Definitely not for me, but they get props for a cool label. - check out more at www.beeriam.com

12oz bottle pours clear gold with weak white head. The aroma is a pretty cool mix of sweet honey, some corn and a bit of grainy malts to a vague hay like sensation. The taste is similar and I’m digging it actually. It has some sugar to honey sweetness cut by some malts and rolling into pleasing yet mild dry malt graininess into the finish. If the mood is right this may deliver. It did for me. Nice stuff.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2012
12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep yellow body with an inch of pure white froth. Sure looks like a blonde. Light splatter of lace on the descent.

Smell: A clean, inviting maltiness with notes of softly toasted grains and breadcrusts with sweetish elements of caramel. Very little lemon from the hops, as the hops are kicking off notes of white pepper and spice.

Taste: Light pale maltiness with a touch of toasted grains, some toasted bread and sweetish touches of caramel and honey. Scantly fruity. Faint citrus along with some spiciness from the continental hops. Mildly bitter. Drying, though a final hint of sweetish malt accents on the finish with spiciness aided by the zip of crisp suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a little bit of zing to it.

Overall: I enjoyed it. A straight-forward but solid blonde ale.

Bottle. Golden pour with cleanish white small head. Aroma is not much but some honey and cardboard. Taste is refreshing with some caramel honey and a touch of creaminess. Finishes quite well with just a hint of bitterness. Pretty smooth and overall not bad.
