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.

On tap at local bar. 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. A good session brew, but I think it has some minor flavor flaws.

Travlr (11932) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Draft at the source as Bird Flippin Blonde, hopefully it’s the same beer. Hazy golden yellow color, fluffy white head. Earthy aroma. Taste is earthy straw.

BVery (6298) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Can via trade. Somewhat murky golden pour with a white head. Kind of bland grain, lively carbonation, maybe a touch metallic.

JStax (2997) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Draft pour. Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma has honey, bread, and corn. Near grassy sweet taste. Light body. Moderate carbonation.

Pours cloudy amber with low off-white head. Aroma of rye, herbs, light honey and yeast. Bland, sweet taste with honey and wheat. Light, smooth body.

DocJitsu (957) - Florida, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Pours a mostly clear, classic golden color with a short white head. Unpeeled green banana and white grape nose. Refreshing, crisp mouthfeel without becoming too astringent. Taste approximates the nose with a bit of tropical guy sweetness and grassy notes included. Not a bad blonde at all.

callmemickey (2791) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Light orange-amber body. Thin white head and spotty lacing. Soft crackery pale malts and some ale yeast stonefruits. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, rounded muted finish.

boto (1854) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2014
Draught: This one poured a clear, golden yellow color. There was a bit of a white foamy head that didn’t last long but did leave some lacing. Decent but lighter aroma. Malts, bit of corn, faint breadiness. The taste is half decent. A bit of malt sweetness, bit of the corn, some graininess and faint grassiness. Not sweet, but no bitterness at all. Taste is OK. Not exciting, but not bad either.

Erzengel (2609) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
Golden in the glass with a white head. The beer starts smooth, fresh and refreshing. Very thin. The mainpart is slightly grainy, very refreshing and thin. Easy drinkable without thinking of it. The aftertaste is smooth, nearly no hops, nearly no aroma, watery.
I think it wants to be a session ale - and there it fits great. But all in total it has bit lack of aroma. --> 7/14/7/7

A mild aroma of dried fruit, light caramel colour not much head. Pleasant taste easy drinking flavor of dried fruit with a light fruity palate.
