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.

Pours hazy gold with a massive, fluffy biege head. The head dissipates slowly, leaving some lacing on the side of the glass. The head retains very well. The smell is pretty mild, but I can detect some breadiness as well as some citrus. The taste is bready with some strong citrus flavor. There is some bitterness on the back end. The body is light to medium. The beer is refreshing and easy to drink. Overall, this is a good beer. This would be great for drinking on a hot summer day.

Pours a lightly hazy yellow to orange-ish color with a white head. In the aroma, a small dry malt and a note of dry hops. In the taste, a small pine like hop and a dry malt. A smooth and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry pine hop in the aftertaste. A bigger hop than expected, but just ok, kind of average.

Poured into a perfect pint.

3.0 A: Moderately hazed golden brownish color. One finger of frothy white head. Retention is a touch below average and no lacing is left.

3.0 S: Grassy/hay and lemon. Light biscuity maltiness and yeasty breadiness. The nose is pretty faint overall though.

3.5 T: Grassy hops with hay, lemongrass, and lemon zest. Pleasant biscuity sweetness with a light yeastiness. As good as the nose, but more powerful.

3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Crisp despite the yeastiness and smooth. Could use some more creaminess though.

3.5 D: Fairly tame, but tasty and easy to drink.

The Bombshell Blonde Ale from Southern Start is ok. The beer pours a nice clear golden color with bubbly white head that is leaving a spotty lace. The smell is underwhelming, some faint lemon/lemon grass zest. The taste is very sharp, starts with a lemon flare then turns to a grainy/bread finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium with good carbonation. Overall it is a decent beer.
