Notes / Commercial Description:
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!

L- straw colored with a slight Amberish tint good sized fizzy head.
S- boozy and wheatey. It has a Budweiser/pbr-ish aroma that's not too appealing.
T- I get a slight caramel flavor. Sweet and not too boozy like the nose. Sour flavor follows the sweet flavor.
Mf- Fizzy and carbonated, yet crisp.
O- I'm living in the dfw area for a little bit. This beer is from the area. Not bad at all, but certainly not great. It's just a light lager. A better pbr if you'd say. Nothing out of the ordinary. First Texas beer other than shiner. It's better than shiner but that's not saying much.

A: Pours golden with very little head, quickly gone. No real lacing.

S: The smell is representative with a spice tone that got my hopes up.

T: For me, the taste didn't follow the smell. It was clean, but for the most part generically bland. It just didn't stand out.

M: Generally, I liked the way this beer felt. It has that summer beer feel. Clean, light and with good carbonation. Refreshing.

O: It isn't a bad beer; it's good, but it certainly isn't a beer that stands out. Would I drink it again? Yes. Would I go out of my way to get it? No.
