Beach Bum Blonde Ale

More marketing nonsense from the big guys.
I saw this maybe two summers ago on Hilton Head Island on draft at Mellow Mushroom. At the time I avoided it thinking that it was just another nasty, macro product. A little investigation proved this to be the case, and I have avoided trying it until now. This 12oz bottle came from Total Wine, Kennesaw, GA, USA as a single.
“Born On” (WHAT BULLSHIT) May 2nd 2008, this is a positively ANCIENT A-B product! Over carbonated and a lager like body that has an odd metallic nose. VERY clean, almost surgical. A little phenolic note in the nose, that doesn’t quite get to the antiseptic BandAid level, but is noticeable. Large head that fades in an instant.
Maximum burps and bloating with a honey like taste. Smooth in the mouth at the same time as being almost with out body.
Lighter than light; watery beyond watery, what can I tell you????
