Diamond Bear Southern Blonde

Ales don't get much lighter than this. It will remind you a lot of the mega-lagers, mostly due to the corn presence, and the fact that it tastes a hell of a lot like Pabst or Old Style. Pale yellow in color and nicely carbonated. If I were to be drinking all night long and wanted something that would sit easy, I might choose this, but mostly because I can afford something better than Pabst. Not bad, but I want to see what else they got. Arkansas (home of DB) is not a hotbed for microbrews, so I can see how they wanted to start with something lighter to introduce people to their line slowly.
