Elland Blonde is a dry and aromatic beer made with Maris Otter Pale malt and a blend of English and American Hops. All this goes together to produce a straw coloured beer that is strong on aroma with a pronounced bitter flavour.

(Cask, gravity, at Black Door, 20160701) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had earth, toffee and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, toffee, earth, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good hoppy English ale.

Cask. Flat and boring. I don’t the bitters that well but this one doesn’t seem that good.

BlackHaddock (6384) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Pump clip said Elland Blonde in The Station, Oakengates Shropshire on 2nd Jan 2016, so I had a half for the tick: this was the third and final citrus flavoured golden brew I had in this pub on this occasion. The lemon aroma and taste were subdued or subtle depending on your stance, the malts trying to overpower the citrus hop base nose and flavour. The best of the three I had.

Nocturne (1833) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2015
Cask at JDW. As ’Elland White Hart’. Clear dark golden shade. Rings of white head. Notes of candied fruits and straw. Moderately bitter taste with some dryness. A bit heavy for 4% so not the most drinkable but some nice flavours within.

ManVsBeer (8772) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2013
Pale yellow with a small head. It’s pretty much what it says on the pump clip, it’s a fine bitter with a high bitterness and lots of malty-hop character.
