Blonde Ale

2947 beers | 3.126 Avg Score

Often referred to as blonde or golden ales, this style is obviously named after their appearance. Their aromas and flavors can range from light to medium intensity, typically featuring a maltiness moreso than a hoppiness. Light fruity flavors can be apparent, as well as medium hopping levels (although these are not hopped to levels of an American pale ale). Sometimes blonde ales incorporate up to 25% wheat in their malt base as well as sugar adjuncts. Yet, the finish should be fairly crisp and dry (sometimes from a cold conditioning). Despite their malty and sometimes sweet flavors, blonde ales should not be cloying and are generally highly drinkable, comparable to their German Kolsch counterparts.
