Lancaster Blonde is a uniquely vivid golden bitter. Blonde has been designed to offer a quality cask conditioned ale to drinkers seeking a pale beer with real taste and aromatic impact. This most stylish and contemporary beer is crafted from pale Maris Otter Malt and carefully combined with Germanic style Munich Malt. The slightly citrus and delicate earthy aromas are created by a combination of First Gold and imported Saaz hops. The initial bitterness is followed by a delightful mouth feel culminating with a long dry finish

Bottle. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is yeasty and dry, and the flavour is mildly toffee with long dryness and bitterness at the finish. Overall a nice golden beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Poured amber with a white head. Really no lacing. Light aroma of bread, biscuit, something like that. Body held up. Flavor also. Not bad for $1. No lie.

dogbomb (862) - ENGLAND - AUG 18, 2013
Bottle. Straw gold with a thin white head. Lots of carbonation bubbles. Nose is sweet and malty with a lemon hop. Taste is malty and lagerish, with a light lemon zesty tang. Carbonation isn’t too much and helps it to glide across the tongue. Lagery, but decent.

This beer has a trashy, dirty skunky mouthfeel and finish. This doesn’t make it very drinkable on a very hot day like today. Still not bad though, easily finished the bottle.

Pizd (429) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
(Bottle): Pours a clear golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of citrus fruits, biscuit, malt and a slight earthy, floral scent. Dry, grass, floral and faint hop taste with a sweet malt base. Moderate bitterness but quite thin body. It’s a simple, refreshing beer but not much else.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 15, 2013
Clear 500ml bottle: third beer of a random tasting even on 15 Mar 2013. Poured into an ’Old Speckled Hen’ badged pint vase shaped glass (at home). Pleasant light amber/golden blonde in colour with a small and swiftly fading white head of popping bubbles: carbonisation rising through the clear body adding to the surface fizz. Malts rule this brew although the hops do give it a sharp edge and bitterness. The aroma was of baked fruit biscuits and slightly woody. The taste followed the same way but as mentioned sharper and quite bitter, especially as the mouth dries. The beer lacks punch and body depth to be honest: OK but not enough ’umph’ to make me want another.

Bottle: Overall very average. Wouldn’t refuse if it was the only beer on offer and much better than the average pub lager but would usually choose something else

Lemke10 (682) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2013
Pours a clear medium copper/amber color with a small and quickly disappearing head leaving a circle of lacing in the middle of glass. Scent is mostly of wheat with some floral scents as well mixed with some slightly bitter malts. Taste is very weak and dry. Has a semi bitter taste as well. I’m not sure if this is how the beer is suppose to taste or if has gone skunky even though there was a decent sound when I cracked open the bottle. If this is how the beer is suppose to taste it is too weak and taste is less than appealing. Considering the price you’d be better off going with a cheap macro-brew than this beer.
