About the Beer
Full disclosure, I had never heard of Southern Star prior to picking up this beer. I was at Central Market, putting together a “build-your-own 6 pack” and picked Bombshell Blonde up on a whim. Of all the brews selected that day, Bombshell Blonde was the winner.
I went in with no expectations and was incredibly happy with what greeted me. When poured into a glass, Bombshell Blonde presents with a slightly cloudy, mid yellow color and a medium sized head.
Its a slightly hoppy smell is mirrored by its taste. The consistency is smooth and creamy and the gentle addition of hops really helps to punctuate the flavor without overpowering it. This also translates to a palatable aftertaste that is not overly bitter.
I can see Bombshell Blonde being enjoyed in many different situations. I think it would work out well on the beach, at the river or in any other outdoor adventure. Its pleasant flavor would support many different cuisines and lend itself well to almost any meal I could think of.
I was pleasantly surprised by Souther Star’s Bombshell Blonde! This brew has firmly placed the brewery on my radar and I look forward to tasting more of their options moving forward. I highly recommend that you go out and try this beer!
