COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Drop Dead Blonde Ale. An alluring 110-calorie ale flaunting a gorgeous golden hue. The two-row malts provide Drop Dead Blonde Ale with its bright golden color and smooth, slightly sweet malty taste. The Sterling hops, which have grown in popularity in recent years, deliver a pleasant, soft hop character. The result is a truly intriguing beer: charming, refreshing, fun and memorable.

If youíre a Bud light / Miller Light drinker, then this is a good alternative for you. Overall, itís a decent beer with a pleasant aftertaste and less than average calories. (On a side note: Contrary to what this page states at the top, this beer is 4.1% ALC/VOL per the label.)

Pours out to a thin white head and light gold-yellow color. No lacing. Aroma is light malts and floral/spicy hops. Flavor does more of the same with a crisp, dry grainy finish. Mouthfeel is light for style. Overall a pretty decent brew.

just like one would expect a blonde to be... light bodied, crisp, easy drinking.

Pale blonde, decent head at first but if fizzes out to a little film after a minute.

The aroma is corny and floral, mildly offensive and mildly pleasant... thatís all i can say about that...

The flavor is considerably better than the aroma, itís not at all unlike a fruitier version of the Special Lager (which is a favorite of mine)... I wouldnít be wholly surprised if the recipe didnít deviate too much. The beer is kind of bready, lightly sweet, floral, and has a mild grassy hop character. The bitterness is very restrained. I canít possibly think of another beer that is marketed to be "Low Calorie" that drank as good as this one.

The palate is thin, but not nearly as thin as you would expect and the carbonation works wonders on the mouthfeel.

timtaylr (16) - Grand Blanc, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Clear pour with a rapidly disappearing head. Clear and pale yellow appearance. Doughy aroma. Fizzy on the tongue with light grassy flavor.

dekester1 (323) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pours a light gold with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of slightly sweet malts. Taste of primarily of 2-row barley malt with a light hop grassy finish. Palate is a bit on the thin side. Overall, a decent light ale, although I thought it was a bit pricey considering whatís there (or not).

Bottle poured a clear pale yellow with a small lasting creamy white head. Aromas of light bread and a hint of yeast. Palae was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of light bread and a hint of straw with a crisp finish.

I thought it was an APA, but it tasted lighter and not hoppy. A golden appearance, hence the name. minimal head, light sweetness, light body. I would drink it again, it was a nice party beer.
