Rahr's Blonde Lager was the first beer to come out of Rahr & Sons Brewing Company. It is a medium-bodied traditional Munich-style Helles Lager that features a rounded maltiness without being too heavy. And like every proud Texan, it has a good head, is pleasant – but not overly sweet. Have some fun with a blonde today!

A: Pours a golden, yellow, hay colored beer. half finger white head that dissapates very quickly into almost nothing. Not much for lacing or retention.

S: Bready, grainy smell. Maybe some floral or citrus note in the background.

T: This is pretty much the same as it smells. Bready, doughy, floral and citrus in the background. I like the hoppy after taste. Quite nice.

M: I like the way it feels. Very clean and crisp. good carbonation.

O: This is actually my first from Rahr. I am a bit biased in their favor because they are from Texas, however I do think this was a great beer. Not the best but a good one still.

Pours out to a thin white head and minimal lacing. Medium gold and crystal clear. Aroma is very weak but clean with nice pale malts and slight grassy hops. Flavor is light and balanced with grainy pale malts, noble hops and clean, acidic bitterness with a spicy, dry finish. Mouthfeel is light but not fizzy or overly watery. Overall a solid Helles.

Update: I noticed that the on-tap reviews are coming in much higher than the bottles. I hope to review the on-tap version soon.

Rahr’s Blonde
Poured out with a nice thick white and fluffy head and is very bubbly. Its body is a nice dark golden blonde and is pretty hazy with some mild carbonation. Its aroma is very citrusy; smells of orange, lemon and peach come through along with some wheat. This beer has some very good lacing! Its light and semi crisp on the tongue with an overall grainy flavor to it. There are some tart flavors when it hits the corners of your mouth and a slight malty aftertaste. Overall, this beer is very tasty, I look forwarding to drinking this one again.
