Bomber from Bottles N Bins in Monterey, CA as "Blonde Ale" at 5.0% and 15 IBU. Pours translucent gold with a white head. Aroma is mildly bready malt with some citrus that has an orange aspect. Med body or so. Malt is bready, hop is citrus, and it has an aspect like a "thick" kolsch. Ok for those not looking for lots of flavor.

On tap @ Peter B’s
This was brought to me as the Blonde Ale, so it will be rated as such although this was really hoppy for a Blonde. The appearance was a golden yellow body, zero carbonation with a scant white head. Aroma had light pine hops with a lighter lemony juice twist. Flavor had some pine hops, straw and lemons. Refreshing and quite tasty with the hops.
