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.

Bottle. Clear golden coloured with a small white ehad. Swet and spicy aroma of fruits and caramel. Strange spicy flavour of overriped fruits and hops. Hoppy finish.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours slight hazy yellow to orange with a fully diminished white head. Light spiced aroma with a mild soapy note. Flavour is dry malty, a bit flat. Ends flat and light spiced.

this is a great session beer that satisfies a hot summer’s day b.b.q’n the hue is rusty gold followed by a sweet malt nose. it has a very unique taste thanks to the "killer-bee" honey used in the brew. this is a really easy to drink ale and most likely one, if not the BEST graphics ever put on bottle, (just my opinion... there are many more)

This beer really isn’t that bad. It’s light in alcohol but rather tastey. Pouring a hazed, dirty blonde color as the name suggests a small head creeps up and lingers. Decent lacing. Aromas are mild with aged citrus. Full nectar, yes, this thing is full bodied like the girl in the pic. So far the name and pic are very accurate in their suggestions. Goos carbonation to boot. The flavor profile is mild. It’s a session beer by far with a crisp bittering component. Mellow citrus malts with a hint of biscuits. The finish is clean and dry. If you’re looking for a great light beer, this is it.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Pours a hazy golden color with a big fizzy white head. Sweet hoppy aroma, and a clean fruity flavor, that bitters slightly on the finish. Not bad.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 5, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 16, 2008 Bottle from BevMo. Hazy yellowish color upon pouring. Looks kind of like a wit. Interesting floral/fruity aroma. Smells like peaches or mangoes. Smooth, somewhat full mouthfeel. Quite refreshing. A little bit of hop flavor towards the very finish.

Aroma is slightly sweet and slightly spicy. Could be some citrus and honey. Hazy gold color with tatters of white head and lace. Medium body with creamy/fizzy carbonation. The flavor is a bit salty - at least it seems so to me. There is some floral and, perhaps, grassy hop. Honey does seem to be present, and there is some malt. It seems something like a Belgian - those can get pretty weird. The finish is fairly dry and a little bitter. I really like this stuff.

One can definitely taste the honey used in the manufacture. Unfortunately, there isn’t much else to its very light, hollow flavor.

joohefner (380) - Isla Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2007
hazy gold with a small unlasting head. faint sour floral aroma. thin slightly watery body. light creamy malt with a tart lemony note. the beer is just overall...faint.

Dogbrick (8682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Bottle from Park Lane Liquor in Lancaster, CA. The beer is a mostly clear orange-gold color with a medium thin and fluffy bone white head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Light floral hops and earthy malt in the nose. Light-bodied with a clean mouthfeel. Light hops, yeast and malt flavors. The finish is mildly spiced with a short and hoppy aftertaste. Overall the beer is a little below average, it simply doesn’t pack much punch.
