Being from Houston, I am proud of the Texas craft brews we get, Shiner, Saint Arnold, Roar. All make serviceable brews, and in one instance, Saint Arnold Christmas ale, even exceptional. A recent discovery of mine is from Conroe and it is Southern Star. I am a big fan of the Pine Belt pale ale and just this weekend picked up the Bombshell Blonde ale.
A- First off the can is awesome, the artwork is simply great. The beer pours cloudy and is the color of hay, thin head and some lacing are left on the glass. You can tell this is un-filtered.
S- Smells bready and malty. Some spice and fruit come through as well.
T- This is the best part of this beer, it has a smooth taste, not too strong, not too light. A bready malty taste with some fruit, a little hop after bite. A really good summer beer, this hits the spot after some yard work in this humid area.
M- Very smooth again. It does not leave much aftertaste, some dryness is left, overall it is nice.
D- I could have several of these, very easy to drink, low ABV, but very flavorful.
Overall this is a great offering from Texas, anyone who enjoys Blondes should like this. I know it is slowly being distributed to other states, if you can not get this, drop me a line maybe we can trade!
