All American Blonde by Shannon brewing is a 5.3% ABV American Blonde Ale.

Label:
Fire-brewed with pure spring, whole grain, whole flower hops and a Whole Lotta Love! Shannon All American Blonde is a light and very drinkable blonde ale. Brewed with all American hops, it is perfectly balanced with a subtle sweetness and light hop aroma.

==Introduction==

Obtained this one from my good friend Aaron Mendiola of BeerMetalDude.com. One of many sweet cans coming from Texas. Today we bring forth a brew from Shannon brewing which use the fire brewed method of making brews. I am unsure what this method is but maybe there might be something special about the brew that may distinguish it from others. Let’s see what we can find about this one. Cheers!

Aromas:
Stone fruit peaches, banana hints bubble gum, guavas, biscuit bread, cane sugar, pears, citrus, floral and grassy hops, apple pie notes, pilsner grain, peppercorn hints, coriander spice, wheat bread, lime rinds, strawberry, lemon and starburst hints.

Flavors:
Rich biscuit bread, cane sugar, pears, citrus, floral and grassy hops, tropical passion fruit notes, mild strawberry, lemon, starburst, stone fruit peaches, banana hints bubble gum, guavas, lychees, tangerines, kumquats, apple pie notes, pilsner grain, peppercorn hints, coriander spice, wheat bread, lime rinds, and mild chardonnay.

Aftertaste:
Finishing with notes of stone fruit, tropical notes, biscuit bread and floral hops. No alcohol in the taste, Straw Pale light to medium body, very refreshing, crisp and smooth mouthfeel, with a very easy drinkability.

Overall:
A very delicious blonde ale. There is something about this beer that is so damn fulfilling. Like it is not its complexity that makes it so great. It has to be that it is super balances, very drinkable and nothing offensive. Something I could drink every single day! I would recommend this to anyone who can find it. Their brewing method has something to do with the magic of the brews.

Anime Corner:
MEMEME! Was used in this pairing to represent the colors of the can’s label but also the aspect of the blonde. While she is technically not blonde, the light blues are typical of blonde in some animes. Since I really liked this brew, I figure it be a great fit.
