It's our very first beer - golden medium-bodied and brewed as a traditional Munich Helles style pale lager. It features a rounded maltiness without being too heavy. And like every proud Texan, it has a good head, is pleaseant but never overly sweet.

    Pours a nice clear amber with a thin white head. Fruity, malty aroma lacks strength. Flavor, fortunately,delivers more than what the aroma promises - typically, malty and fruity, but fairly firm. Smooth mouthfeel is OK on firmness and fizz. Good with dinner, or at a party.

    Aroma of straw, honey and malt. Appearance a golden body with a very thin head despite a vigorous pour, very little lace. Mouthfeel was a little on the thin side, flavor of also of straw, hints of honey and malt. Overall it seemed a little on the light side, even for a blonde but it was decent enough.

    On a warm Sunday afternoon, is there anything more relaxing that to kick back with a cold brew, to watch your favorite team on the boob tube? Maybe if you had some big and meaty grilling away over some hot coals would top it off, but sometimes you can't ask for too much at one time, eh...? ;^)

    While normally any beer with the word "Blonde" is immedaietly a tip to me of it's exponential suck-ness (e.g. "{Fill-in-the-blank} Beach Blonde Ales" are a dime a dozen here in SoCal, up and down the coast..., and all pretty bad), but there have been exceptions to that overally general rule-of-thumb. And this one, from The DFW? A thumb's up beer, IMO.

    Nice and crisp in the mouthfeel. No sugary sweetness, or cloyingness in the mouthfeel. Very easy poundability here. Enough nobel-hopped goodness to keep things nice and on the up-and-up, but too much so. Not hugely complex, but very nice for what it sets out to do. Pleasant, indeed.

    Could easily see a case of this chilling away and enjoyed throughout the day, while folks grill up some beast, or smoke up some BBQ, while tossing some horseshoes, playing some pool, or just generally enjoying a nice weekend afternoon. Cheers!

    Disappointing. I suppose anticipation had built this one up too much; I've heard such good things about this brewery through the grapevine, but it's taken me 'til now to finally get my hands on this beer. Pale yellow, fizzy, a little metallic at first but that mellows, thankfully. This tasted like beer. Just beer. Nothing really jumps out. Too bad. Hope their other beers are tastier (if I ever find them).

    Beyond boring. Pours yellow pale straw color, with next to no head and a skunky hop aroma. Not much going on in the flavor department either. This is barely a step above a macro lager, even if it is an ale.

    Pours a crystal clear pale gold with a wispy white head that soon fades to nearly nothing. Nice moderate straw malt aroma with more in the flavor. Perhaps a bit watery, but really not a bad pale lager.

    Pours wtih a light golden body topped by a thin, white head with little lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with an underlying fruitiness and a touch of hay. Light bodied, smooth and a little watery.

    This beer comes courtesy of a trade with TChrome..thanks buddy. This beer pours a light to slightly medium yellow color, headless with no lacing and almost no carbonation present. The aroma is light with grainy maltiness....you know the same ole same ole. The flavor is light bodied to medium bodied, more than your usual pale lager. Mild carbonation levels, overall nice light hoppy levels...some floral notes in the finish...but a very light bodied beer.... nothing much going on here

    Rahr Blonde has a very clean aroma withsome light floral notes. The body is a clear yellow/white with a creamy head. The flavor is piney and bitter, but it finishes clean. Light-bodied, but hardly watery with the perfect level of carbonation. Very enjoyable.
