With the Blonde Bomber American Blonde Ale, Eric created a beer thatís beautiful to look at in a clear glass. Its blonde coloration (SRM 3-5) and satisfying mouth feel are backed by a light hop aroma and a medium dry to somewhat sweet taste depending on the food accompaniment. Like The Veteran, The Blonde Bomber is an easy-to-drink session beer with 5.0% alcohol by volume, a true craft beer created for drinkers that love a beer with a gentle flavor profile and a pleasing texture. Its small, primrose-colored bubbles communicate the true nature of the beer both in the glass and on the palate.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. A bit maltier than their lager, but still pretty safe, average, and run of the mill.

Pale gold color with a small head. Very light aroma of floral hops. Mildly grainy flavor. Some herbalness. Slightly sweet finish.

HIGHB4LL (633) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 17, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Party Time Liquor in Spearfish. Appearance: 1 finger white head, clear straw yellow, head does not last. Aroma: biscuits, rice, floral, light grassy. Palate: light body, average carbonation, sticky texture. Taste: light sweet wheat, and malt, into a very faint bitter. Overall, very drinkable and refreshing, but not a very amazing beer aside from that.

jmagnus87 (2511) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark yellow with minimal head. Aroma is slightly twangy with a little citrus. Loads of grains and a bit of malt. Taste is light bitter and follows aroma. A little more citrus here. Light bodied with a slightly creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing too crazy or extreme, but drinkable.

A very drinkable beer with no bad qualities but nothing that makes it stands out either. That being said it is an above average brew. I wonít mind paying a reasonable premium for this veteran owned brewery who employs vets. A disclaimer: Iím a vet too.

BVery (6829) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Slightly murky light golden pour with a white head. Mild aroma and taste of cracker and wheat. A little hop bite later in the taste, but overall pretty dull.

[Bottle] Straw colored pour with a fizzy white head. Not much lacing. Nose is of cereal grains and light floral notes. Taste is of cracker, light bread, some honey, light green apple notes and residual sugars. Light oxidation seems to be present. Better than their other beer.

Lemke10 (810) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2014
This pours a slightly hazy, yellow color with a foamy white head. The aroma is mild with the summer aroma of wheat and citrus. The taste is smooth and easy drinking. Simple grain, wheat, and citrus flavors quench the palette. Nothing special by any stretch of the imagination but it is smooth and easy to drink for a beginning beer drinker. Leaves a slight lingering dry, grain after taste

BBB63 (6122) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - APR 15, 2014
Bought as a single: Pours a clean golden hue with a fading head and some lacework. The aroma is juicier than expected with melons, grapefruit and some pear esters along with biscuity and bready malts. There is a touch of soapy notes that does distract some. The taste is a mild fruit and acidic nature with little actual bitterness. Very bland on the palate with a short finish. Really needs more bitterness IMO. Additionally just like the lager, needs a bit more snap on the mouth feel. Lively enough but not refreshing enough. Overall it is what I would expected, a very 1980ís styled Pale Ale and not what the current market offers. Yep, it is nothing more than a gimmick which makes this veteran sad.
