UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 Pours shiny golden with some clarity and a large, pillowy, fast-fading white head. Aroma of dough and yeasty bread and crisp hops. Tastes faintly of bread, not very sweet but not bitter at all; for a blond/golden ale I find this very pleasing. Medium-bodied with a creamy texture and mild carbonation that dances across the tongue, Southern Star Bombshell Blonde Ale finishes slightly sticky but overall satisfying.

Received in trade from TexIndy, Thanks for the opportunity. Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a monstrous creamy white head that shows much resilience. Fruity bready aromas waft in front of my nose with some bitter citrus as a supporting player. Taste is creamy rich and malty with lots of fruit citrus and honey. Rich creamy velvety mouthfeel, medium level of carbonation, light to medium body. I am very impressed with this one. Very light and flavorful. I could see downing many of these if I still lived in Houston.

Bombshell Blonde from Southern Star brewery has a very thick, off-white head and a fairly hazy golden-orange appearance. Carbonation is relatively high, and lacing is prominent down the glass. The aroma is grainy, with a orange-peel aspect in the background. Taste is of roasted grain, with an orange under-taste. The hop presence is nice, but not strong. Mouth-feel is medium and the ale finishes wet and satisfying. Overall, this is a good blonde ale, and I would like to have it again. RJT

One of the few blonde ales that I have tried thus far and definitely one of the most flavorful! And the brewery is right here in Texas too! The rich texture and bold flavors have certainly put this brew high up on my list! I paired this brew up with some delicious venison round steak and what a match-up they were! With this long Texas heat-wave this summer, this brew was just the ticket for a momentary chance to cool down! What I enjoyed most was the ‘doughy’ flavor that this beer possessed; sort of reminded me of Hungry Jack biscuits! This brew is definitely one I will be pairing up with some slow-smoked brats on toasted hoagie buns and covered with sauerkraut!!

Unfiltered pour, yes! Gentle nose of grain, bread crust, sourdough, and just a pinch of citrus and spice. Tastes of liquid white bread, crust, sourdough, earth, grass, with plenty of yeast and fruit for contrast. Finishes with grass, earth, dough, and crust. Gentles bitterness. Light bodied, but mouth-filling. Can this style be done any better than this? I thought this was great.

Something about cans... Maybe I’m not used to them, and I swear I didn’t shake it up, but I got quite an eruption when I popped the top. As a result, the beer poured with a rather large foamy head, that lasted quite a while and left a lot of lacing. Medium amber color. Distinctly bready aroma. Bready taste as well with rich but mild sweet malts and a finish of understated flavoring hops.
