This is my newest obsession. Has anyone else tried it? It is from a small, young brewery in Conroe, TX. I would love to be able to try to match this using extract but I wouldn't have the first clue.

If you live in Texas and haven't tried it you are definitely missing out! But the only place I have found it in Dallas is Whole Foods.

"As for ingredients, Bombshell's malt backbone is constructed of Rahr Special Pale and Wyermann Viennaa varieties, while German Tradition Sterling is the exclusive hop variety used. California Ale yeast is employed once again."

From: Pint Log: Southern Star Blonde Bombshell Ale Review

It is a tasty blonde.

Southern Star does have a few good beers, the Bombshell Blonde being one of them. One of these days I'm going to make the 30 minute drive North to take a brewery tour.

Haven't tried it yet, but I am a fan of their Pine Belt Pale Ale.

I'd say mostly pale malt, with enough vienna to bring it to the right color. Sterling hops are easy enough to find, you just have to estimate on the additions, and WYeast 1056 or WLP 001.

Thanks for the link Maxhavoc! Sounds like someone who knows what they are doing would be able to figure it out, haha. I, on the other hand, am relatively new and don't think experimenting is the best idea for me.

Wasn't too sure about it since it comes in cans, but I bought a six because I like blondes and I liked the label art.

I liked it enough to buy another six. Tasty when served icy cold in a koozie on a hot day.

I'm no help on the recipe though...
Pez.

EDIT: Keg and Cellar in Coppell, TX carries it.

Yeah the only reason I first tried it was because we were floating the river and I needed cans. I only bought 6 because I was reluctant and thought Shiner was the safer bet.

I ended up rationing them the whole weekend!

I agree, good stuff. Perhaps not the best ever but like you said they are a young company. The company is owned by a guy I work with's brother in law and I fully intend to take a tour one weekend soon. I don't know much about that particular brew but I have attempted to clone the pine belt pale. First attempt was close but not quite there and I ended up with some funky after taste. Hopefully next attempt will get me closer. I will speak with the guy I know and see if he can't shoot an email to his brother in law about some suggestions.
