Poured from can into pint glass

A: Deep hazy golden color. Nice fluffy two finger head that settles fairly quickly.

S: Sweet, carmel and honey.

T: Tasty brew. Follows the nose with a little unexpected banana. Mainly sweet malty goodness but has a touch of hop spice. Almost buttery.

M: Thick compared to most other blond ales I have had. medium carbonation.

O: Great beer from southern star. Since it comes in a can I can see myself quaffing alot of these by the pool.

Bombshell Blonde pours a cloudy golden, and is topped by a shiny, white head that fades to a film and leaves lace that clings to the sides of the glass. The aroma is fruity with lighter notes of toasty malts, and herbal hops.

There's a toasty, bready sweetness upfront that is constant underneath the building flavors. A mild banana fruitiness appears in the center, and moves into a a mild, grassy bitterness in the flavor. I thought this beer had a pleasing sweetness that was offset by a good depth of flavor. This blonde ale is medium to light-bodied, and has a nice crispness that's accentuated by the carbonation.

I was very pleased with this beer. It had a nice amount of flavor, and would make a great session beer.
