COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

An easy sessional beer that fools you with its color and aroma. Is pretty smooth but has a slight hops taste on the back end.

Bottle @ home, shared with LeninCat. Thanks to Adam for sending. Cloudy yellow orange appearance with a white head. Some tropical fruit / mango / citrus in the aroma though itís not too aromatic. A touch twangy. Doughy malty flavor. Dull bitterness. Moderate sweetness. A touch of pine. Forgettable. LeninCat did rake this at damn near a 5 but I think heís just so freaking thirsty.

hotstuff (3943) - Indiana, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Rated on 02-19-2014 (Bottle at Hallís Tavern of Coventry-Fort Wayne). This bottled beer pours a very small head with a short retention, transparent body, visible carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is malty, semi-sweet and a subtle hint of hops. The taste is malty, grain and very light hops. The palate is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is a session beer and a beer whose flavor I do not particular enjoy. It seems a tad bit harsh.

This seems to be some sort of vanity label brewed by Cold Springs and designed to make me proud to be an American--and it does! Actually, it does not. It doesnít make me ashamed either. I am moved in no way by this beverage. It is neither that good nor that bad. It is a decent enough blond, light on both hops and malt but clean, very mildly sweet and quite drinkable. In fact, itís good enough that I feel a little bad writing that snarky intro to my review. Only real flaw is a very small bit of fruity weirdness in the finish and even that fades as you get further into the glass.

A lot of body for a blonde. Has some nice floral aromas. Smooth honey with wheat. Great carbonation and Mouthfeel. A lot of body but sessionable and easy to drink.
