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.

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.
