Saddlebock Dirty Blonde Ale is inspired by the great German-brewed Kolsch beer – a true hybrid beer, brewed with ale yeast, but fermented like a lager. The cold temperatures give our Dirty Blonde a refreshing dry quality, while the ale yeast contributes complex fruity flavor and bread-like aroma not normally found in a lager. This is a more subtle brew, with a light malt flavor and a touch of fruit, giving it a unique and refreshing quality, and the perfect beer to pair with food.

I don’t drink much beer, so for me to have a 2nd glass of anything, it have to be amazing. Saddlebock’s Dirty Blond is just that, it iseverything one can love about beer all in one glass. I have since added the SB Dirty Blonde to my short, but growing list of beers I DO DRINK!

Hazy gold with a short lived off white head. Nose is dough, caramel, light toffee and bread. Smooth palate, dough and caramel up front, lightly sweet, sticky malt finish.

Hazy pale golden color with fluffy off-white head. Aroma of barn funk, ripe apricot, corn. The flavor is pretty fruit forward, surprisingly, with gentle tartness, yeasty mild bitterness and slight peppery bite. I would say it’s on the lighter side of medium-bodied, with fairly lively carbonation and a somewhat acidic finish. I like it.

Love this beer. I would love to see an American Cream Ale made with some flaked maize.

A very flavorful beer and great example of the brewer’s craft. A great beer for year round adult consumption.

22 ounce bottle thanks to rayjayclientele. Thanks man! This is my last state tick. Woo! Pours a hazy coper color with a dense white head of foam with pretty good retention. The aroma is grassy and lemony and a touch herbal. The taste is doughy and sweet initially, and then rounds out to a touch of bitterness in the finish. Light body with a bit of a spritzy carbonation. Pretty enjoyable beer overall.

Draught at the Saddlebock Brewery, Springdale, AR.
Cloudy yellow colour with a small white head. Belgian yeast and some maltiness in the aroma. Yeast bitterness, mild hoppy bitterness and malt in the flavour. Thin. Felt more like Belgian Blonde than Kölsch to me.
