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!

Apple juice color with one inch head that leaves some modest lacing.

Smell has a slight spice note. Nothing too much, though. Taste follows. Pleasant enough. Nothing memorable, but probably a nice summer beer.

This is a really decent beer for a blonde ale. It was just ok, but that is probably just because I am not a huge fan of the style.
