Bombshell Blonde
(Southern Star Brewing Company)

One of three canned brews from Southern Star. Our buddy Wally brought back some of these little beauties from a recent trip down to Texas. Cheers Wally!

From the Southern Star site:

"A rich, creamy golden colored ale fermented at a cool temperature to give a clean finish. Hints of yeasty bread and a touch of hops combine to make a beer that is truly more than the sum of its parts."

Here we go...

Pour - more amber than blonde in color. Nice carbonation levels with a great looking head. Pretty nice looking pour I must say, I would've missed out on this if I had drank it straight from the can. 


Aroma - slight hints of malty, grains and a bit of citrusy hops. Pretty mellow in aroma, nothing too intense but non-offensive that is for sure. 


Taste - sweet and tangy with some subtle floral hop flavors. Some similarities between aroma and taste that is for sure. I'd say the maltiness is the biggest surprise this beer has to offer. This is not a watery blonde like some that I've had and stand out as one of the better versions of the style as far as I'm concerned. Nice work Southern Star. 


Overall - solid, full-flavored Blonde ale. Nothing too crazy but thats what makes this extremely smooth and easy drinking. Another great candidate for camping and disc golf (or whatever other outdoor activity you find yourself doing). 


Note - Southern Star started canning this beer in 2008, the also can their Pine Belt Pale and a Foreign/Export stout called "Buried Hatchet".
