COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Beach Bum is an all-malt American blonde ale, which draws its deep golden color from the finest pale and caramel roasted barley malts. This beer is dry hopped with the choicest imported Alsace and Hallertau hops as well as Cascade hops from the Pacific Northwest, which lend to its pleasant hop aroma and its slightly spicy and fruity taste.

oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2011
[email protected] Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Yellowish golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruits, nectar, wood and mild honey as well as some mild hoppyness. Flavour is sweet malts, mild hops and some grassyness. Yet a slight swill feeling to it.

omhper (25958) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 26, 2010
Draught at Pour 24, Las Vegas, NV. Clear yellow, minimal head. Light bodied with clean mouthfeel. Slight notes of honey, other wise vacuum dominates until it warms slightly and stale butter takes over. Hard and fizzy, dull but somewhat drinkable.

Dark blonde colour. The aroma is slightly spicy, lightly malty. Tastes spicy, with light citrus from the hops. The finish is crisp and balanced.

A: The beer pours a golden straw color with a small and short lived white head. S: Matching the appearance of the beer, this one smells strongly of straw. There is a light bread not as well as a healthy dose of corn. Mild yeast and some light, fruity esters. T: The flavor offers up some pale malts to go along with the straw and grass. There is a light hop bitterness to it. Some apple and corn give it more sweetness. M: Light in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Surfs up, brah.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is a light corn malt and yeast. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a very bland watery malt with a metallic finish. Not much going on with this blond from AB.

2.4
bhensonb (15985) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle. Brassy gold color with a decent white head. Sort of a grassy hop aroma over mild pale malt. Thin to medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is mild malt and mild noble hop. Not much spice. Finish is pretty bland. Obviously A-B skimped on ingredients, but it’s drinkable. Finishes more like a wheat beer than a malt beer. It’s ok.

2.7
Ratman197 (15632) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle poured a clear yellow with a small lingering white head. Aromas of fruitiness and straw. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread, light straw, light banana and a light hint of citrus with a crisp clean finish.

2.5
Tmoney99 (15135) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2006
Draft. Hazy orange with an average fizzy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate floral citrus aroma. Light to medium body with a watery texture and lively carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable summer brew that was better than my expectations.

2.6
Lubiere (14262) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2006
Golden blonde with a thin white head. Light diacetyl aroma with light crisp malts ina roma. In mouth, a light honey lager with light crisp malts, and smooth hops. Light bubblegum notes. Medium bodied. Free taster, August 26,2006 at Greene’s Tavern.

j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 12, 2009
On tap at Bacchus. Pours a clear light yellow with no head. Aroma is almost non-existent, save for a faint hint of citrus. Body is on the thin side, and crisp and devoid of flavor. Ends lightly and with a hint of grain and lemon. This reminded me of a beer seltzer, and it wasn’t until talking with the bartender after I had taken notes and scored it that I found out this was an AB product, along the lines of shocktop, blue moon, et al, and that explained a lot. It didn’t taste so much like beer, as it tasted like a beer flavored seltzer water.
