Cask; Regular. Also available bottled (filtered).
A Refreshing, golden blonde beer. Hoppy with a hint of citrus and sherbet. A delightfully different Yorkshire brew.

Ethereal (2410) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Cask at the Bricklayers Arms, 18th April 2008. Light yellow gold. Honey joins the hops and malt in the aroma. Flavour wise, it’s like the Premium Gold but ’dialled back’ somewhat. Soft and light in the mouth, this is a good golden session beer.

thewolf (10770) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAR 23, 2008
Bottle @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours a clear golden, yellow-amber with a light creamy, small, white head. Aroma is stacked with pine hops and light pilsner malts. Okay mouthfeel, but a little watery. Mild flavour, light malty with good, dry, pine hoppiness.

OStreetBrewery (120) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 24, 2007
Pours alight brilliant gold with a fluffy white head. The aroma features a tangy light struck note, sweet candi esters, and a touch of resiny slightly oxidised hop. On the palate there is sweet grainy malt, a slighlt touch of corn, confected fruit, fading to a gentil bitterness. Not the greatest english blond I have ever had but perhaps it would be better fresh and not bottled clear.

kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2007
Very average blonde beer in fact on the label it mentions that it’s lagered and it certainlay tastes that way to me, it has a full malty nose and flavour along the lines of a good german lager but without the sophistication.

Clear golden colour with an average white head. Malty, light grainy sweet aroma with grassy notes. Malty, light sweet flavor with some hoppy notes in a dry finish.

Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 3, 2007
My bottle is Daleside Blonde Lager Ale, 4.3%. I kind of avoided this beer, I thought that the concept sounded boring, but one day I eventually did open it! It’s golden with a medium head. The aroma is the typical Daleside profile, refreshing with light notes of aroma hops. I find this in the flavour too, where it gives fruity notes and there also are a bit of caramel notes. Refreshing and easy to drink.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 26, 2006
Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. A nice surprise. This is the first beer from Daleside I actually enjoyed. Clear golden with firm white head. Fresh and fruity aroma of orange-peels, flowers, lemon and soap. Soapy and grassy flavour with notes of ryebread. Medium bitter aftertaste of orange-peels and grass. Quite refreshing and quaffable.
