Suzy B – Southern Prohibition Brewing

 

Travis, my good friend and co-writer, was kind enough to bring over a few beers from neighboring Hattiesburg, Mississippi.  I’m fairly certain he didn’t mind the short trip over, because I sent him home with two Saint Arnold Pumpkinators, score!  Anyway, back on topic… he brought over two four-packs of beers from a relatively new brewery in Hattiesburg known as Southern Prohibition Brewing.  The beer I’ll be reviewing tonight is called Suzy B – Dirty Blonde Ale.  Here’s some basic info from the brewery:

An easy drinker, yet full of flavor, our unfiltered ale is perfect for any occasion. This dirty blonde has a nice malt backbone and a balanced bitterness, set apart by its pleasant hop aroma from our hop back.

  •  ABV: 5.0%
  • Original Gravity: 12 Plato
  • IBU: 20
  • Currently available on draft and in 16 oz cans

 

As I pour the beer, I notice the beautiful dark golden color, it has a medium head (it dissipated a bit by the time I took the picture), that has average retention with very nice lacing.

The aroma is very under-toned, but I suppose that’s to be expected from a blonde, but you can pick up subtle hints of the hops, along with some of the maltiness.

The taste on Suzy B is very well-balanced.  I get a bit of the hops, along with a nice balance of the malty backbone.  It’s somewhat sweet, but not overly sweet, and I pick up hints of a floral taste as well.

The mouthfeel on Suzy B falls somewhere between a light and medium body, with a medium carbonation.  It finishes very clean, with light bitterness.

Suzy B isn’t anything new, but it is a really well done blonde ale.  I can see this one coming in handy to replace the well-known national beers on tailgate Saturdays and Sundays in the south.  This isn’t all Southern Prohibition has rolled up their sleeve, I’ll have a review on another beer of theirs, “Devil’s Harvest” up soon.

Great!

Suzy B is a great beer, that pairs well with a ton of foods. It’s very flavorful, but not overpowering, and also very drinkable. This one will especially hit the spot in all of the warm months around summertime in the south.
