Came across this on accident. Was cooking with my roommate and he randomly bought these and pulled them out for me to try. I would never have given these a second look except for the awesome box art of sexy naked ladies.

12oz bottle poured into my duvel tulip (overkill?).

Honestly, for how light this beer is it is awesome. It's great for being a blonde and wow, I can't remember the last time I had a lighter craft beer. It feels like all i've been drinking is imperial stouts, BA brews, and DIPAs so it's nice to revisit the simpler brews. The mouthfeel is light and refreshing. Carbonation is spot-on and is packed with huge flavor for something so light. Light malt and fruit, slightly bitter, and well balanced. What a great beer to session. I would easily take this over a BMC for Sunday football.

12 ounce bottle - $1.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, deep yellow body with an inch of pure white froth. Sure looks like a blonde. Light splatter of lace on the descent.

Smell: A clean, inviting maltiness with notes of softly toasted grains and breadcrusts with sweetish elements of caramel. Very little lemon from the hops, as the hops are kicking off notes of white pepper and spice.

Taste: Light pale maltiness with a touch of toasted grains, some toasted bread and sweetish touches of caramel and honey. Scantly fruity. Faint citrus along with some spiciness from the continental hops. Mildly bitter. Drying, though a final hint of sweetish malt accents on the finish with spiciness aided by the zip of crisp suds.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation with a little bit of zing to it.

Overall: I enjoyed it. A straight-forward but solid blonde ale.

Great taste and mouthfeel out of this nimbus brew. Good color and a little extra hoppy for the blondes I am used to. overall a good drinkable experience.

I would say the bottle needed a touch more carbonation because the head foam disappeared quickly.. however it did not damage the aromatics.
