Notes/Commercial Description:
"As the name implies, this is one knock-out of a beer. Brewed to be a light bodied, refreshing ale, Blonde Bombshell combines subtle malt and wheat flavors with a delicate Liberty hop aroma to create a sensational beer. Originally brewed as a seasonal, this beer was so popular it pushed its way into our regular line-up."

had on tap. Pours a nice straw color with a small head.

Good aromas of creams, grains, and some bits of crackers. Not that much depth to it and somewhat simple.

Lighter bodied with a nice crisp feel and notes of creams and grains. Decently complete feel as well.

A solid beer. Nothing all too memorable, but nothing bad either.

12 oz bottle into 10 Barrel tulip pint glass

A - Pours with a lot of bright white head. Good lacing. Decent head retention. Beer is a slightly dull but very clear gold.

S - Lots of pale malt character. Not very sweet, mostly grainy. Nothing offensive.

T - Same as above, but with a bit of malt sweetness.

M - Almost watery, but not bad. Refreshing.

O - Like most American Blonde Ale's, this beer is targeted at macrobrew drinkers. As such, it does a good job of hitting the target while still being decent to fans of Microbrew. Not offensive, but not really recommended unless this is your favorite style of beer. Depending on what else is available, I would consider bringing this to a party. It's drinkable.

Had on-tap @ Brewforia Beer Market Meridian ID. Served in a pint glass.

A: Clear straw/yellow, high carbonation, decent amount of brilliant white head and lace.

S: Almost lager-like, light fruitiness in the form of apple & pear, cracker, malt, grain & a touch of cereal, hint of banana.

T: Follows the nose, malt forward with a light twang of wheat, grains dominate with notes of banana, green apples and other faint fruits underneath...a touch of a skunk character as well but not distracting.

MF: Light, well carbonated, and wet.

O: Not something I could have a ton of but I could see it being a decent summer drinker.

12 oz. bottle while visiting Dad near Bend, 12.27.11.

Half finger white head, quick dissipation with a few streams of lazy small bubbles rising to surface over straw gold clear body. Sweet nose, grassy hops with what smells like significant light wheat infusion, clean nose. Very pilsener like taste despite the wheat, sweet malts with subtle peppery grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light, a bit thin, good effervescence. Certainly sessionable at this ABV, I was a bit surprised how much flavor this had. Good entry craft beer for non-hopheads.

Comes out of the tap a clear golden with a fine-bubbled white head. Crisp, malty aroma has an undertone of pear and apple. Malty and crisp flavor has a fruity undertone that is mainly pear with some apple. Fizzy, lively texture leaves behind a persistent tingle.

12oz bottle, leftover from a dinner party guest.

pours light straw yellow, minimal head, recedes to thin skim across head. what faint aroma i pick-up is a bit of malt, maybe hops if i stretch.
taste - blah. nothing even remotely newsworthy. not bad per se, but why bother. mouthfeel is think carbonation bordering on annoying.

glad it was a freebie. can my liver have 12oz of processing ability back?
