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.

3fourths (8962) - 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.

Tap @ Live Wire in SD. This was ok, not anything special, jsut a typical semi-crappy blond.

golubj (1377) - San Mateo, California, USA - SEP 3, 2008
Bottle shared at the CA-GA cultural beer exchange hosted by alexanderj. Cloudy yellow pour. Aroma is melon, grain, slightly sweet. Flavor is the same, a little watery, but nice in the sweet grain department. Reminds me a little of high life.

alexanderj (3486) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 1, 2008
Bottle; orange tinted yellow in color. Aroma of lemon, bread and fresh cut grass. Very malty and lemony in the flavor with an earthy, grassy finish. A pretty good version of the style.

BCMike22 (81) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Poured into Red Sox pint glass. Dark golden color, very cloudy...medium head that dies slowly. Smells a little malty, but no real definitive nose. Tastes very full for a blonde. Complex, but more confusing than balanced. Sweet almost citrus undertone. Not bad, not great.
