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!

Poured from a can into a shaker pint. Slightly cloudy yellow, no real head or lacing. Pleasant but light smell. It tastes surprisingly good. It is clean, slightly sweet, with a nice bitterness at the end. Probably not something I would get again, but I could recommend it.

Medium-bodied, pleasant but not overly sweet. Good Texas beer. I'm a Wit drinker but it's nice to get something stronger.

This is a great balanced lager. Nothing offensive or too bold, just an easy drinking beer. It leans towards the sweet malty side. If allowed to warm a bit, this brew becomes more complex with biscuit and fruity notes, and even better tasting.

Another good Texas beer that doesn't fail to please. Love how light yet flavorful this beer is.

This is a clear, pale gold pour that has a tight, well defined head, with little lacing upon dissipation. Almost zero cloudiness in the pour. Smell is fresh, but a bit of a conflicting aroma that takes away from the beer. Good, clean, crisp flavor, but a bit of an aftertaste that trends toward sour. Refreshing drink, good to enjoy during a hot afternoon. I will drink this again. Flavor improves as it warms.

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.
