The number one obstacle for blondes wishing to go rouge is figuring out which side they’re currently on. I suppose our Renegade Blonde is no exception. It’s an ale. Believe me I checked… But when it’s young, it has a crisp, malty flavor with a refreshingly bitter finish, not unlike a lager. With age, it develops a mild, fruity character, like an ale.

500 ml Willebecher glass draft at the Angel’s Trumpet Ale House in Phoenix, Arizona. The pour is a mostly clear golden with a small white head. The aroma is clean cracker malt, toast, and a general grass yeast. The taste is a really nice bright fresh cracker malt and grass, very much what I have come to expect from a Kolsch. The palate is medium to light bodied with soft natural carbonation and a dry grass grain finish. Tasty beer.

Leighton (18735) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Bottle shared at the 2015 edition of the chriso Pre-GBBF tasting - London. Cheers! Pours clear yellow-gold with a white cream cap. Simple bready pale malts in the nose, dough. Medium sweet flavour with more doughy, pale bread, vague citrus fruits, light hay, pale grains. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Simple sweet and bready finish. Fine.

Bottle. The top broke off the darn bottle while opening leaving part of the glass inside the cap. Weird. A cloudy orange and yellow color with a small white head. Aroma of sweetened creamed corn. Taste was similar to the aroma with sweet cut corn, some very mild noble hops way in the background.. Palate was medium. finished long with lingering sweetness. Overall; OK. Paired well with a creamy chicken soup.

Hard to love a blonde (beer) but I keep trying new versions, expecting a powerful, new blonde-based experience around the next corner. And that’s what brings me to Iron Fist’s Blonde, which I’m pretty sure I originally picked up on a whim at my local no-name grocery store. The blonde, yellow brew props up a frothy white foam, which in spite of a thick head, puts out a steady plume of tangy muscat smell, fresh and herbal. I also get fresh summertime snack smells like celery and apple, garnished with parsley. Herbal, fruity and vegetal, all at once. It must be healthy! The flavor follows-up, with a dry and herbal foretaste, and adding in lots of parsley and parsnip, oddly enough. The carbonation is healthy and hale, though, with hops kind of outlining the whole experience, and generating a long, enjoyable aftertaste. I’m not sure I liked it, but I appreciated it. This is vastly different from the normal blonde offerings, light and airy and sort of flavorless. It’s the taste of a summer garden, made drinkable.

Scopey (12711) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Pre-GBBF Shindig 2015. It pours clear golden - amber with a small white head. The nose is soft, grainy, bitter -sweet, dough, cereal and light wood. The taste is soft, toasted grain, grassy, icing sugar, dough, wood and a touch of spice with a dry, grassy finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. A bit more alcoholic than I would expect for this sort of thing. A touch wishy-washy, but not all bad.
