COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Not Just any Blonde” The Kern River flows into Lake Isabella less then one mile south of Kernville, Ca. This Blonde Ale has an easy malt body and a mild hop aroma produced by traditional English hops. The light straw color and crisp finish make this an easy drinking beer that’s great for those hot summer days. If you are looking for great taste and good times, don’t settle for just any blonde, choose Isabella Blonde!

appearance is yellow with a really nice tight pillowy head that laces. aroma is noble hops bread malts and biscuit. Taste is nose with little bitterness and a toasty malt backend. Palate is thin and dry which is on style for me making it refreshing. Overall it’s a nice blonde. Not the greatest style and certainly not my favorite style but good for what it is supposed to be and rated as such.

Bottle pours out a pale straw topped with a white head. Nose is grain cereal malts some grassy floral notes. Taste is more of the light grain and a touch of hops.

Bomber pours a bright mostly clear blonde color with a nicely formed one finger white head. Aroma is floral hops, grain, honey. Nice balanced flavor, sweet bready malt, some hop bitterness, clean finish. Nice feel, crisp and well carbonated. Good for the style.

On tap at Facebook in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is light something. Taste is light, mild floral and some nuttiness. Kind of crisp and nutty but otherwise pretty nondescript

Bottle. Hazy gold with orange tints and white head. Really mild and pleasant with a lot of lemon. Thin mouthfeel and light carb. I enjoyed this.

Ontape (471) - Valley Village, California, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Bomber. Pours a hazy piss, no better way to say it. Aroma has light grains, malts, maybe some corn? Taste is better with some Euro hop notes and a fairly long bitter finish. More hop character as it warms a bit. It’s been alright Isabella, but we could have been so much more...

Bottle from a generous trader. Pours straw gold with white head. Nose and taste of baked bread, lemon, light malt and grain. Lighter bodied. Refreshing.

BMan1113VR (7929) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Bottle. Clear yellow hued pour with a small white head. Aromas are malty, toasty and bready with a very light ester and a bit of marmalade and herbal hops. Flavors show a nice malt structure, bready and toasty. Some fuggles like hop character. Finish is a bit flabby and not as crisp as I would like. Medium carbonation, off dry.
