A Refreshing, golden blonde beer. Hoppy with a hint of citrus and sherbet. A delightfully different Yorkshire brew.

Maria (10187) - 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.

Clear golden color, small white head. Fresh grassy nose. Light nutty malty notes, aggressive hopping. Long hoppy aftertaste - this is totally different stuff than the bland bottled version.
