Beach Bum Blonde Ale

This is by A.B. Beer temp. 41.3F – 6.1C. Pours medium gold with a fair white head that faded quickly with no lacing. Mild sour citrus aroma. Not much depth to the malts with a fair amount of bitterness and some sourness but I’m thinking it’s not all hops. The citrus that I smelled at first is responsible for the sour part and it’s (drumroll…) GRAPEFRUIT. Yes I’m drinking grapefruit flavored beer. It’s not the worst I’ve had but it’s nothing to write home about, although I’m writing about it. While citrus is a traditional flavor for beer, lemons, orange and maybe even lime could work – I don’t think grapefruit works at all. Maybe if there was a touch of sweetness it might help but I don’t know, sweet grapefruit, no way.

This was the last of a six pack (thank god). As I bid a fond farewell I’ll say this: buy it at your own risk, drink it if you must or better yet serve it to people you don’t care for very much.
