Pours a dirty, copper-blond hue with lots of haze from the tiny chunks of yeast. Good retention on the inch of eggshell-white head, as it leaves a plethora of lace along the inside of the glass. For a Blond Ale, the aroma rocks, as it adds delicate notes of flora hops that balance lightly toasted biscuit and caramel malts. A hint of passion fruit and mango chime in from the yeast esters.

Flavor starts off with some biscuity sweetness from the pale malts that combines with nutty notes along the way. Hops are fairly muted, but distinctively floral and saved for the back of the palate where they add a slight bitterness to the finish. Mouthfeel is solid, with a great carbonation level, medium-thin body, and a smooth (somewhat dry) finish that both refreshes and leaves me wanting another sip. This Blonde Bombshell did her job well; keep up the good work Southern Star!
