COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Recently named “3rd Best Craft Beer in the Hudson Valley” by TAP NY, Dirty Blonde Ale is an all-American style wheat beer with a twist. Brewing this beer with American ale yeast keeps it light and refreshing. An enormous Cascade and Centennial dry hop gives this beer a strong grapefruit aroma and a pleasant citrusy flavor making it Adirondack Brewery’s Official Summer Beer.

Dirty Blonde is an ode to the many summer romances that have taken place on the shores of Lake George since the early 1800’s.

A hazed blonde ale with a thin white head. In aroma, light fruity malt with light grassy hops, soso. In mouth, a crisp malt with light mineral notes, grassy hop, boring. On tap at Empire Brewfest 2014.

Aroma is butter/diacetyl and wheat. The flavor is citrus, diacetyl, fruit, wheat and a tangy/tart finish.

Cloudy appearance. Aroma of citrus floral hops and some almost fruity lemon like aroma as well. Quite nice. Taste is full flavored and refreshing. Floral hop and citrus hop balances the malt, is a light malty, but not watery at all. This one has a great hop profile and is really enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1/6/14. 12oz bottle thanks to JBVatkeens. This bottle says "Dirty Blonde Pale Ale, Unfiltered American Pale Ale." Hazy golden orange pour with a huge khaki head that sticks and laces well. Musty aroma, floral, pale malts. Light flavor, pale malts, citrus, a slight tang. Meh.

Mine says Dirty Blond Pale ale. Bottle from Ron. Tastes like an EPA with some lemon/citrus hops. Pretty light, some malt notes. Okay. Not much to say here.

Bottle. Poured a light golden color. Hey, this smells and tastes exactly like the brew I made last summer. I made a weizen recipe last summer and wet hopped it with Cascade hops. Very light wheat malt aroma mixed with the hops. Same with the flavor with big citrus notes. The liked the old label seen here better than the one on the bottle now.

On draught at the brewpub. Pours a hazy straw color with a fine white head. Light body and expected (clean) wheaty flavor overall. Average.

Bottle from the mix pack. Decent blonde gold color with a nice head and lace that fades. Flavor dies out but it nice throughout. Decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
