Dust Bowl California Line bottle Picmonkey

California Line


Dust Bowl Brewery

Turlock, CA

Style: Vanilla Blonde Ale

Alcohol: 4.5%

IBUs: 10

Serving Style: 12-ounce bottles and kegs

Availability: Year-round in Central and Northern California

Appearance:   “Light golden shade. Big, very white head.”

Aroma:   “Just a whiff of vanilla. Otherwise normal beer aroma of a blonde ale.”

Taste:   “Wow. This really is like cream sodas I drank when I was a kid. That’s the vanilla bean, I guess. There’s a ‘roundness’ in the mouth. It’s refreshing, but isn’t just a thirst-quenching liquid—there’s some personality.”

Food Affinity:   “This exercise is sort of fun. The vanilla component makes it distinctive, but isn’t so dominant that this would not work with food. Maybe some lighter food from the ‘fun’ category. How about a good grilled cheese sandwich or a real hot dog—the kind in a natural casing?”
