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.

A true microbrew beer for the beginning person to the microbrew world. It's the Hook! Your In! Great job for its style. I would recommend it to anyone!

Reviewed from notes. The appearance had a mostly clear yet somewhat hazy yellow color. Half finger white foamy head that dies at a decent pace and leaves some adequate lightly clingy lacing in rings. The smell was sweet corn but not overbearing, light hops. The taste had a mainly sweet corn-ness, no aftertaste, dry finish. On the palate, it sat at/about a light, sessionable, and the carbonation is good for an American blonde ale and good for me as its slightly smooth and somewhat clingy around the mouth and tongue. Overall, I say this is a good blonde ale worthy of coming back to. Its nothing over the top, but hey, it did go well with a Sonoran hot dog that I had in Tucson area while visiting.

Bottle - Raw honey and some light pale grains. Cloudy orange with a beige head. Nice and light with the hops lightly flavoring and bittering, while still offering a light sessionable ale. Although not an exciting style, I like this interpretation.

Lubiere (9939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 26, 2013
A blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, a light corny malt with faint hops, boring. In mouth, a typical Mexican lager, faint corn, so-so. On tap at brewery.

12 oz from total wine. Pours a light yellow color, typical blond/golden color. Very muted hops flavors with a somewhat larger than typical malt body and honey sweetness. Aroma is slightly spicey. Finish is grassy bitterness. Pretty unassuming.

At the brew pub on draft is a clear light yellow with a slight white head. The aroma is of pine and citrus and the taste is more pine and a bitterness that lingers on the palate.

On draft at Tap 25. It pours a clear golden color with an off white head. The aroma is floral with lots of pine. The flavor is interesting with lots of evergreen, pine and florals. Nice mouthfeel and finish. I could drink more of this session blonde. Pretty nice.
