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!

Bright crystal-clear gold color, though with little head and almost no lacing. The nose is extremely faint, giving just some grainy malt. Flavor isn't bad: malt predominates, though, as in the nose, it is a bit grainy. Hop flavor is on the high end for a helles, giving more interest to me than a typical beer of the style. Finish is clean. Does have a very nice light body, with a neutral texture.

The blonde was better in the early days of Rahr.
