Horny Blonde by Horny Goat Brewing Company

We did it again…we went to see Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 on an Imax screen…in 3D.  Absolutely fantastic and immerseive.  So now that I’m back and not at Hogwart’s…I guess I should continue my Horny Goat fest.

Beer #238 is Horny Blonde by Horny Goat Brewing Company.  Brewed in Wisconsin, like all of the other Horny Goat products, this Light Lager has an ABV of 5%.  I have to admit…I have always wanted a Horny Blonde…uh oh…did I really go there?  Forgive me, I just hope today’s Horny Goat is better than the other three.  It couldn’t get much worse, could it?

Horny Blonde had a good start appearance wise with a nice clear golden yellow color.  There were quite a lot of those lovely tiny bubbles (Don Ho?) rising to the top.  There was a just a tiny ring of a white head that actually left some lacing, not the best but it was noticeable.  Here was another Horny Goat product with next to nothing in the nose department…maybe just maybe a very, very faint smell of grains.  There was nothing else.  Those grains showed up in the taste along with a bit of honey and a lemon peel like flavor.  It had a light body and it wasn’t nearly as carbonated as it looked (love those tiny bubbles).

Another clunker from Horny Goat unless ‘lite’ beers are your thing.  I don’t understand the fascination with ‘lite’ beers.  Most aren’t worth the price of admission.  Oh well…only two more Horny Goat brews left in this fest, a Milk Stout and a Vienna Lager.  Stay thirsty my friends… (sorry for the blatant rip off of the Most Interesting Man In The World) !!!
