Pours out to a thin white head and light gold-yellow color. No lacing. Aroma is light malts and floral/spicy hops. Flavor does more of the same with a crisp, dry grainy finish. Mouthfeel is light for style. Overall a pretty decent brew.

Super pale super clear yellow and fizzy. Little head. Nothing on the nose but grain. Goes down like an amstel light, pretty close to tasting like seltzer water. Touch of grain prickly carbonation and not a single hop flavor that I can detect. There are far better low calorie beers out there that probably have even less calories than this but actually have some flavor. I'd go as fast as saying miller lite has more flavor than this one. Just bland and unenjoyable. If i'm gonna cut calories why would I was it on this $9 six as opposed to the thousands of 6$ ones that tastes just the same if not possibly better.

A thanks goes out to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a small head. Smell is of malts, some grains. Taste is mild, malts and grains, a touch of sweetness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

12 oz twist-off bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
3.5% ABV, "Refreshing ale with 110 calories."

A - Hello gorgeous! Drop Dead Blonde pours a slender, crystal clear pale straw yellow body topped by loose white locks of foam; sexy...for a moment. The effervescent head fades pretty quickly, and with it, the aroma. No lace left on the glass.

S - A beauty to look at, but boy does this blonde smell. Laden with sulfur, the loose head vanishes far too quickly to grab much more without a hearty swirl, but some floral, noble-like hop notes evaporate into the air briefly, followed by traces of honey sweetness, grainy pale malt, and a touch of corn.

T - Surprisingly hoppier than expected, Drop Dead Blonde has a noteworthy noble hop floral character that encases simple, dry pale malt graininess and a kiss of honey for a rather tasty light beer.

M - Very lager-like, this crisp, refreshing ale has carbonation bite to the finish that dries the palate out nicely while allowing some hop bitterness to linger on the tongue.

O - Drop Dead Blonde is labeled an ale, twice, but sure comes off lager-like! Crisp and clean, Drop Dead Blonde is crisp and refreshing light ale that drinks like a lager and quenches thirst with a nice floral hop profile. She's not a beer you'd want to put a ring on but flirt with this one on a hot day and it'll cool you off promptly.

Appearance - Very light yellow. Crystal clear and bubbly. Tall white foamy head. Quickly dissipates.

Smell - Light pale malt. Not unlike a macrolager.

Taste - Very light. Sweet pale malt and water. Hint of hoppy sourness in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp.

Overall - An ale version of a diet beer? Not sure I needed that.

This was part of a huge haul that I picked up at Binny's (South Loop) during my latest visit to the Windy City. I am always looking to expand The CANQuest (TM), but this one hits a little close to home. Many is the blonde who has told me to "Drop Dead!" If they meant this in terms of looks, they should have used a gun moll blonde from the cover of some old noir/pulp fiction.

The Crack was kind of unobtrusive so to enliven things, I utilized an inverted Glug. This resulted in a foamy finger of bone-white head with modest retention. Color was a sunshine yellow with NE-quality clarity and loads of CO2 bubbles in evidence. Nose had a characteristic lager sweetness, seemingly devoid of corn or other unwanted adjuncts, but something still smelled a little off. Mouthfeel was medium and it really was pretty tasty, slightly sweet, definitely lager and without any adjuncts discernible. Finish was semi-dry and very refreshing. This would make a great lawnmower beer. I guess that I am kind of like Dos Equis' Most Interesting Man in that I do not usually drink light lagers, but when I do, this is the sort of thing that I enjoy. Stay CANned, my friends.

Color is pale and smell is what you'd expect from a blonde, cereal malt with a bit of a bite. Flavor is mildly sweet with a distinctive but not overpowering hop aftertaste. Medium to light bodied. I'm not sure why this is labeled as a "light lager" when it tastes more like a blonde ale, with a much better body and flavor than anything typically labeled "light." This is a good hot weather beer.
