First off, what is this beer actually called?  Is it Breezy Blonde Ale because it doesn’t really say that on the can?  But then the website says Breezy Blonde Ale, so I guess that’s what we’ll go with.  Moving on.

The weather is getting hotter here in DFW and that means that it’s time for lighter beers.  The Blonde Ale from 903 Brewers seems like a good choice because it’s lighter in color but still packs a 6.5% ABV punch.

Here is what 903 Brewers has to say about their Breezy Blonde Ale:

“Breezy Blonde Ale- This golden colored American Blonde Ale is an easy drinking, smooth beer with more body and flavor than your typical blonde. Best enjoyed outdoors with the breeze in your hair. 6.5% ABV
Pairs Well With: Crisp Salad, Salmon, Monterrey Jack Cheese”

Here is what CraftBeer.com says a Blonde Ale should resemble:

“BLONDE ALE
One of the most approachable styles, a golden or blonde ale is an easy-drinking beer that is visually appealing and has no particularly dominating malt or hop characteristics. Rounded and smooth, it is an American classic known for its simplicity. Sometimes referred to as ‘golden ale.’ These beers can have honey, spices and fruit added, and may be fermented with lager or ale yeast.”

This was a really interesting beer because from the jump it almost seemed like a cream ale to me.  Check out my review of Cedar Creek Brewery’s Cream Ale for reference.  There are a lot of similarities that I wasn’t really expecting between this beer and Cedar Creek’s Cream Ale.

The 903 Blonde Ale pours out with a nice, thick head of white foam.  The light color is pretty inviting, and this beer just looks light and refreshing.

I got more light malts on the aroma than hops.  I really didn’t smell much in the way of hops at all to be honest.

This beer really kind of tastes like a cream ale to me.  So much so that I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that they use a lager yeast on it.

The taste is really light and really, really refreshing.  It almost has a slightly sour characteristic that comes out the more you drink.

You can definitely taste the light malts, and I really didn’t get much in the way of hops on the taste.

The thing that I was the most surprised about with this beer was how fast I drank it.  This is seriously the most easy-drinking beer that I’ve ever had.  I felt like I had just had my first sip, and my glass was half empty.

I drank it by the chiminea on my back deck when it was about 70 degrees outside, and I think that is probably pretty close to this beer’s natural habitat.  The 903 Blonde Ale would do really well in pretty much any warm or hot outdoor setting.  It’s super refreshing, and to be honest, this might be my new hit weather lake beer.

The 6.5% ABV is a nice bonus, too.  You want to know that you aren’t drinking water, right?

Thanks for the read.  Stay tuned for more 903 Brewers related posts like their Chosen One Coconut Blonde Ale.  I’m looking forward to that one.
