Tybee Island Blonde is a Kölsch style ale. It is a clean, crisp, session beer brewed with noble hops. The Blonde has a light floral aroma and a mild hop bitterness. The agreeable nature of this German style ale means that it will get along well with many foods, but you have to pick a dish that won’t overwhelm it. Being that we are on the coast, we suggest you start by pairing it with some seafood!

kramer (6482) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2017
Clear pale straw body with a minimal thin ring of white head. The nose is rather light, just a bit of pale malt and some light corn. The flavor is just as light and bland. Corn, pale malt, zero hops, watery finish. Meh. Light bodied with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty poor stuff.

Poured from the tap at into a pint glass at Tybee Island. The appearance is a slightly murky pale amber with a small white head. The aroma is hop driven. The taste is big on citrus with a mild hop finish.

Not a big fan of this one. Oddly syrup-y and bitter. I can't really place it but it's strange and not a fan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mep3222 (1380) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Has the funk of kolsh, but some floral hops balance it out. Drinkable kolsh when I usually am it a fan of the style. Lighter refreshing beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can. Pale golden. Pretty much bland but clean kolsch. A little peppery some corn. Meh.

aracauna (3552) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2015
Crystal clear gold body. Soft. Fairly clean finish. Slightly husky malt. Hips are mostly in the bettering and fleeting.

Ernest (7515) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Can. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers), with a light note of soap. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. A simple, somewhat roughly malted example. Watery and thin, with a disappearing head. Drinkable, but little more.

Cybercat (5401) - Georgia, USA - APR 10, 2015
Pours clear golden with a frothy eggshell head. Malty, dusty aroma is barely detectable. Flavor, fortunately, is much stronger, malty and a little fruity - not spectacular, but certainly acceptable. Hey, not every beer has to be a three-course stout. Mouthfeel has average thickness and little fizz. Good for a party, or for a meal, or for just taking the edge off the summer’s heat.

ChainGangGuy (4872) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2015
12 ounce can - $2.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours a light yellow-hued body, ever so slightly hazed, with a small, powder white head.

Smell: Sweetened lemon peel, scant crackery maltiness and a pinch of peppery dried herb.

Taste: Mild malt flavors of soda crackers and puffed grains preclude some sweetish lemon, some mealy-toned husk accents and a herbal, lightly spicy hop character. Lightly bitter. Flavors follow through the crispish, semi-dry finish, though, there’s more of that sweet lemon popping up in the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Satisfactory.

Aurelius (5178) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2014
Slightly funky grain aroma, with just a little hint at some sweet spiciness. Jimmy-Buffett-esque can. Tinged straw color, very clear, not much head. Lightly malty, a light straw-husky bittering. Medium body. Hay-bitter aftertaste clings a bit. I would only have this again if it was free. And cold. Habersham Beverage Warehouse, Abercorn, Savannah.
