COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Lonely Blonde wears a delicate fragrance of Czech Saaz hops, and flaunts German Pilsner, Crystal 10, and White Wheat malt, which contribute medium-light body, fair complexion, and a pleasantly lacy white head. Crisp carbonation slinks the Lonely Blonde quickly away, and you’re left with nothing but a slight lingering sweetness as you contemplate how The Lonely Blonde can be beautiful on so many levels.

Clear gold color with a small head. Light floral hop aroma, maybe a bit of corn. Grainy flavor. Grassy. Light bitterness.

I purchased an individual bottle of this from the Trader Joe's in Rochester. Lonely Blonde pours a golden hue with a moderate head that leaves behind some lacing. The scent is of a sweet malt with a bit of hops. The taste is of wheat with a bit of hop bitterness. This was an ok beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I wanted this to a good beer, I like the name. But...it is pretty much your run-of-the-mill blonde. I wouldn’t turn one down but I wouldn’t seek it out either.

On tap @ The Bluestem (Luverne, MN); thank you Liz. Poured golden, clear, generous white head and nice lacing all over the glass. Aroma of grain and malts combined with some fruits. Taste is sweet, some grain, some fruit. Decent and drinkable.

16oz can poured a slightly hazy yellow color with minimum white head. The aroma slightly sweet malt and honey. The flavor kind of mild you do get the honey and not much else. No dancing on these taste buds.

csaso (1888) - Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Tap - average size foamy head, clear light gold color, sweet light malt aroma and flavor, some fruity esters, moderate hop balance, not bad for a blonde ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GuenSmith (28) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Appearance is golden straw colored with a quickly dissipating head, warm and bright looking. Taste is simple and uncomplicated, grassy with a lingering aftertaste that persists on the palate. I feel this could have come in a white can labeled "BEER" and it would be that...disappointing

deyholla (9258) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear yellow gold with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has lots of straw and grain with a hint of musty grass. Flavor has straw and bread throughout with a hint of biscuit.

crossovert (10293) - Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2015
355ml bottle. Golden pour. The smell is not great, armpit and bo, some musty malt in there. Flavor is dry with a heavy saaz omponent, dry and soapy, buttery malt. Not a good one.

high_on_hops (799) - Burlingame, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Pours a clear gold with a short white head. It has a mild blond malt and earthy hop aroma, and a flavor that is light malt and hops followed by a dry, light finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

An easy drinking blonde ale from Fulton. Very session able worth a shot if you like the style.
