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 cloudy dark golden beer with a fluffy white head. Smells and tastes bready and rich. Very creamy body, smooth, buttery. Totally not filtered. Best "all-purpose" beer made in Texas. Very little hops added, but comes off as distinctively balanced.

Appearance: A cloudy gold with a nice bready head, bubbles rising through the glass, slight reddish tint.

Smell: A great blend of hops and bready notes, very well balanced and very fresh smelling.

Taste: Both the hop flavoring and the bread notes hit you right away in a gentle wave, developing into a full-fledged flavor that bitters as you swallow it. A great after-taste that gives off hints of spices.

Mouthfeel: Gives you the impression of a lack of carbonation, but I feel it works to effect. The beer sits in your mouth and nothing really hits you in the face. The carbonation is very soft, the hops are very pleasant, and the breadiness and spices bring a full sense of flavor to the palate.

Overall: This is one hell of a refreshing beer, and Southern Star have achieved it without sacrificing flavor. This is a great beer to drink, and it is very complex. There is no other Blonde ale that I drink the way I drink this one, it is in another league.

A- Pours a hazy yellow with a white head.

S- Malty and bready along with a wheaty aroma.

T- The taste was malty and bready, like drinking brioche bread, it sort of reminded me of drinking a Boddingtons, the breadiness quality of it. It was a good blonde ale overall.

Food Pairing- I had this with pizza and it was a great combination.
