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.

Think this one might have been infected. Massive eggshell head sits above a cloudy golden brassy body. Aroma is lemongrass, citrus, and perhaps a little funk. Quite sour and tangy...bit of citrus and honey. Medium mouthfeel. Not a fan.

bottle, pours light gold with a medium white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with some citrus notes. Sweet light malt and a peach and lemon peel finish balance each other well. Hop bitterness is low. This is highly drinkable and I like the low ABV.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2009
From Sparky27 via trade. The pour was dull golden, slightly hazy and had a short white head. The aroma was earthy, slightly floral and at times fruity. A bit of dry malt too. The flavor was slightly tart, grainy and malty. Thin body. Not terrible. Weird, but in a good way.

This beer is very bland. Aroma is almost non existent and flavor is weak. It does have good coloring. Minimal head palate. Overall an average blond.

Avengedpoet (326) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - APR 5, 2009
Pours a luminescent yellow with a big foamy white head. Aroma is of pils-type malts and honey. Taste is quite reminischent of Bud Light, but a little less corny and with the minutest amount of honey in the distant background. I could see where this would be a nice lawn mower beer on a really hot day, but definitely not a daily drinker for me. Un-complex and straight-forward, but that isn’t always a bad thing.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet matly and fruity, and so is the flavor - quite plain. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.

Thanks to turdferguson for sharing. Pours a soft yellow with amber hues. Head is thin and white. The nose is pretty interesting, fruity, estery, background malty sweetness. The flavor is also very interesting and turd put his fingers on it exactly. Its peach skins. Smells and tastes very strongly of peach skins. Has a mild subdued bitterness with a nice complimentary malt sweetness. Very nice character. Has a persistent medium bitterness in the mouthfeel. Very enjoyable, especially for being 3.5 % alc.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Fresh draft. Lightly filtered golden colored body. Semi-sweet honey flavored pils malt, some waffle-lie breadiness/cake character. Sweeter in the finish, with very mild hop bitterness in the finish. Fresh, simple, sweet, a little plastic like at times. Don’t think I’d want to try a bottle from a warm shelf, though.

Pours yellow and cloudy. Aroma is melon, yeast, and biscuits. Taste is slightly fruity, a very small amount of sweet, and melon. Very little alcohol in this beverage.
