"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.

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.

Draft at brewpub. Clear yellow gold, slight white head. Really has some nice character for a blonde. Yeasty. Pleasant light fruitiness. Earth, floral, grass. Balanced. Pleasant mild bitterness. Light, crisp, zippy. Nice! I’d take this over many other ’brewpub blondes’.

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 (12970) - 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.

Bottle from AJ’s Fine Foods Scottsdale. pours golden with a half inch of white foam. Not much on the note but a little bit of bread. crisp on the tongue in that it runs a little dry. finishes clean. Eh!

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.
