Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: armock on 10-25-2008

A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light aromas of sweet malts and soda bread are present in the nose.
T: a The taste is similar to the smell and also has notes of doughy bread.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and is quite flavorful for a blonde ale, making it a good representation of the style.

A: Aggressive pour into a Southern Start pint glass. Good carbonation. Not too much. One half inch head quickly receding into a partially covered surface. Small amount of lacing on side of glass that disappears quickly. Medium golden amber color. Unfiltered and a bit cloudy.
S: Small amount of malt, bread note and barely detectable hops.
T: Light tasting. Tastes just like it smells.
M: Light and creamy with a smooth crisp finish and just a slight bitterness.
O: The gateway beer into the Southern Star craft brewery. Its nice. Certainly nothing out of place here. Very balanced. Could be a good choice for the beach or pool.

Southern Star Bombshell Blonde

Appearance: cloudy orange, medium head, and good lacing.

Smell: light hops and grain.

Taste: grains, apples, orange peel, and subtle hops.

Mouthfeel: medium-light.

Overall:
This is a good brew. The texture is nice and the flavors are pleasant. I am increasingly liking canned beer.
