Pours a cloudy golden color with a small but really nice head.
The nose is almost "wheaty" with some really light herbal grassy notes.
The Taste is pretty good for a Blonde. Generally I find blonde ales to be pretty 'meh' but this one is very well done. The hops really give this something to work with, it's slightly bitter as well as sweet. It goes down extremely smooth & leaves you feeling refreshed.
The mouthfeel is nice with a light carbonation, but there's a very slight bitter finish that rounds it out well.
Overall, this Blonde is very well crafted and will more than likely surprise you. Dirty is the way I like them.
Southern Prohibition is doing wonderful things for the beer culture in South Mississippi. Give them a taste!

Pours to a creamy head that lasts and laces a bit, hazy gold color. Aroma is sweet,grainy and a hint of hops. Flavor is clean, smooth and biscuity. Mouthfeel is very good for style. Well done. A "dirty" blonde because it is unfiltered but otherwise luscious and satisfying. Love my Suzy B ;)

Good looking. Dark for a typical blonde, but I guess that's why she's called a "dirty blonde". Looks more like a pale.
Low on aroma as you would expect from a blonde, but... there is a subtle lift of hops as you swirl the glass and sniff. I had mine in a nonic because it comes in 16 ounce cans. Some slight fruity scents of note.
Taste Great. Not less filling. Very flavorful blonde ale. Easy to drink with hints of hops on the tail end. Very clean.
The mouthfeel is different than most blondes. Subtle roasty characteristics come out as the hops and malt mix well on the sides of the mouth and then it finishes clean with slight, very little bitterness.
Very well done.

Fresh can direct from the brewery.

Gorgeous orange body but retention and lacing are pretty ordinary. Crisp orange flavor; taste is light but refreshing and inviting. Perfect for summer drinking.

Taste is sweet, honey, toasted malt, with light grass. Super clean, nice, and light--a bit on the sweet side. This is very good for the style. Overall, I would get a six pack of this, especially if I wanted a light sessionable beer. It certainly keeps me curious about the brewery.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #88 (May 2014):

Grainy, Dry, Refreshing, Grassy

This is not your typical Blonde Ale, a little bit rough around the edges yet still clean at the same time. Grainy and slightly bitter with a refreshing quality that makes us come back for more. No problem crushing these tallboys, great job SoPro!

STYLE: American Blonde Ale | ABV: 5.0% | AVAILABILITY: Year-round

A: Beautiful frothy, foamy white head with bubble dimples that leaves light lacing down the glass. Bright goldish orange color that is a tad cloudy.
S: Crackerish, bready malt aroma with a tease of light floral hop aromas.
T: Crackerish malts, lightly hopped, very balanced with hints of lemon zest.
M: Light bodied, slick, medium carbonation, and highly sessionable.
O: A very fine, mostly balanced blonde ale. Certainly worth a try if you're looking for something from Mississippi.
