Beer of the Weekend #711: Dallas Blonde

The Texas beer tonight is Dallas Blonde, brewed by the Deep Ellum Brewing Company of Dallas, Texas.

The color is medium gold. Two fingers of fluffy, eggshell-colored head leaves a skim, a ring around the edge, and a short trail of lacing on the glass. The aroma is a light but enticing blend of pale malt and some toasted malt. There is also a touch of esters and light zest. Overall, the aroma is faint. The flavor mostly mirrors the smell and the beer, as the side of the can says, “goes down easy.” There are flavors of pale malt, a touch of toasted malt, a little spice, some light esters, some hop bitterness (light, though), astringency, and a touch of zest. It is a phenomenal beer for how light it is. It is complex, enjoyable, and easy drinking.
