COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Everybody love a blonde, right? We think you’ll agree, our blonde is a Bombshell. With five different malts, and two mouth-watering hops, we’ve created the perfect blend of bitter, yet sweet…just the way we like it. This flagship beer always pours with the perfect head to excite all of the senses.

4.9%ABV. American blonde ale. Tapped out gold. 6ºSRM. Nose is sour and beery.. Mouthfeel is carbonated and watery. Very lager-like. Palate had pale malt with white bread, water biscuit raw peanuts. There is a thin sweetness that runs all the way through the tasting experience. Subtle hops. Clean finish. Overall, a very satisfying lager-like ride. Excellent accompaniment to a grilled beef skewer or some chili cheese fries.

Can at the Ritz Carlton, New Orleans, Louisiana. Slightly darker yellow pour with lots of nucleation points. A tad over carbonated. Nice caramel and malt nose. Light flavor of malt, caramel, and nuts. Quick finish but not much aftertaste. Refreshing but little character.

Looks, smells, and tastes exactly as you would expect a blonde ale to. Thoroughly average beer, but works pretty well while walking around New Orleans on a 95 degree day.

Pours a light orange gold. Has a sweet citrus, fruit, and wheat aroma. Taste is a nice balance of citrus, wheat, grains, yeast and light spices. A balanced aftertaste.

Pale gold. Simple malt aroma with some light fruit and a bit of higher alcohols. Some slight sweetness. Entirely forgettable.

On tap at D.B.A. Brew was a bit more tart than I would like. Also was kind of hazy, which I found odd for a blond ale. Hop presence was minimal and maltiness was more a sweet mellow taste, nothing interesting. Patty liked it more than me.
