The silver screen era of film was riddled with as much secrecy as it was glamour. One of the best kept was the Society of Blondes - a group of golden blonde bombshells who were as powerful as they were beautiful. Codenamed Ms. H, Ms. L, Ms. T, Ms. G, and of course Ms. M, their plan was simple: quell the thirst of every man in America with their unbridled femininity, bubbly demeanor and golden locks, thus claiming this land for the blondes. Its up to you to decide whether or not their diabolical plan worked. Nevertheless, our flavorful and full-bodied American Blonde Ales golden straw color, delicate hop notes and citrusy aroma was created in their honor. Prepare to be seduced.

Draft - Loght grains. Cloudy yellow gold with a decent white head. Light grains and some sweetness. Boring.

Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Yeasty nose, with some citrus, sourish fruit, grain, and grass. Hazy gold color, small head, and sticky lace. Small sweetish fruit, yeast, corn, and soft bitterness in finish. Thin-medium body. Doesnt seem to be a kolsch (as it is labeled on the can) -- its a bit too big , yeasty, and fruity. Okay.

Bright straw color and creamy white head. Light noble hop aroma with a touch of sweet corn. Smooth palette with some malt sweetness. Mild spicy hop flavor. This is an easy drinking blonde. I wish it finished dryer so you could drink more than one. Overall not bad

Not my favorite style of beer although I was in the market for a lower gravity, session-able beer to serve during a 4 hour event for a large group of people. Purchased a sixth barrel from the brewery on 1/31/15 and keg was consumed by sundown the next day. Some notes of citrus and nice presentation with light head served at 44 degrees in half liter glasses at 8-9 psi. Tasted clean and crisp with a slightly sweet finish. Some guests attempted black and tans layering with optimator. Overall a decent value 41 pints for $75.

Poured from a bomber into a beer can glass on 07.16.14. A: Typical bitter hop smell like Hallertau or Noble hops. Lots of sweet grain too. Is this an adjunct lager? A: See through straw yellow. Slight fizz of a head that quickly recedes. T: Bitter grain, sweet malt, and maybe corn dominate. Flower and a sourness are subtle. P: Crisp. O: Its not balanced at all. It also has urine-like element. Ammonia. This was very much like a macro brewery adjunct lager. Maybe it needs a lime or four. I gave it to the kitchen sink instead.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 Can from Total Wine.

Cloudy maize with a white head. Nose of lemon, bread, a bit of sourness. Pretty full body for 4.5%. Flavor pretty much follows the aroma. Quite wheaty. Pretty strong yeast/light sourness to this one, not nearly clean enough for the Kolsch style with which it is labeled on the can ("Golden/Blond ale" as used here may be a better choice, but I cant say I know enough about that style--other than that I often have to drink it when in Canada--to really be certain.) Abundant corn, almost to the point that I start recalling macro lagers. The favor is just off here. Its....dirty. American comes up with some solid stuff, but not this time.

tl;dr summary: They promised Michelle Pfeiffer, but delivered Michele Bachmann.

12 oz can. Pours a light golden color with short head. Small hops and big citrus fruit and melon aroma. Love the can here. "Chill it and kill it", it says. Brilliant. Really refreshing light beer. Super easy drinking. Good for when you feel like drinking 8 of them. Im happy with the one. Will drink again.

An odd one. Totally reminds me of 10 barrels Swill. That is, theres a fruitiness in the flavor that is offputting, although not so much as in Swill (less sweet -- but still sweet -- here). Ultimately, I think they have a labeling issue -- this is not a blonde ale.

Draft at their brewpub. Very pale yellow-gold beer. Quite dry and soft ale, as they say on the light lager end of things. Sweet, yeasty. Alright

Lagerboy (2163) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 7, 2014
Bomber. Golden straw, ridiculously huge snow white rocky creamy head no matter how soft the pour. Aroma of citrus and mild malts. Taste is lemon citrus, lightly sweet pale malt, a hint of honey, low bitterness. Lively carbonation, light bodied, low hopped. Clean, crisp and dry, a refreshing sessional quencher. TLF (Totally Lagerboy Friendly)
