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.

12oz bottle from Bevmo Carmel. It’s got a great label!...... A lot more flavor than I was expecting. Nose of some yeast and citrus fruits.

Light gold color. Long lasting head. Light malt aroma, little citrus in the finish. Sweet malt and a little honey sweetness. Crisp finish with some yeasty spice as well. Light and refreshing. Good for the style.

Bottle shared by DenverLogan at the San Diego Festival of beer. Orangeish yellow with a decent head. Aromas were some citrusiness with maybe some other bright fruit. Flavors fell off a bit, but still hung on to the citrus for a little while. Just OK.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 16, 2007
Tasted at the MicroBar in Clapham (London), a clear amber with some carbonation. A soft sweet grape aroma. A sweet bubblegum flavour, a bit too sweet.

pnista (1007) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Pours a clear yellow to brown with a healthy white head. This looks like a blonde should, and though I don’t like the style, a beer I would like to drink. The nose is middle of the road. Toast and canned corn. Lightly sweet with some peppery hops. On the tongue, a bit fizzy, but not particularly watery, about right for the style in most regards. I’ve never IDed DMS until drinking this beer. It was always a flaw I missed. But man do I taste the corn. A lightly sweet malt, with some toast. The corn is bugging me out! The corn and toast with a bit of sharpness lingers. A bit of diacetyl on the creamy finish. Not a great beer.

elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - APR 25, 2007
Hazy gold with a white head, aroma is sweet citrus with a vegative background. Flavor follows aroma with an overall vege DMS tainting the experience. Not a blonde I would recommend.

It was a decent beer. The flavor caught me by surprise. Had some veggie, fruity flavors, but really mind. The after taste was sort of nutty/buscuity which I’m assuming is the tarty/honey stuff everyone is talking about. The half naked women painted on the bottle is what prompted me to give it a shot. Give it a shot.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2007
Pours a mostly clear golden bronze with some suspended yeast and an airy, wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of mild pale malt has a touch of tartness and grass. Body is overcarbonated and otherwise pretty thin, along with a hint of earthy noble hops and grain finishing more tart and citric toward the finish. Somewhat drinkable, but that’s about it. Overall pretty bland.
