Lonely Blonde is an American Blonde Ale brewed by Fulton Beer, and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the ale was served in a pilsener glass from a can.
This blonde pours a clear straw and is topped by a thick cap of rocky white foam that persists briefly. Small patches of lace cling to the sides of the glass. A few bubbles stream in the glass.
Noble hops give the aroma a spicy kick that’s gently backed by a hint of grain. But the wheat begins to assert itself more prominently as the beer warms.
The palate begins with a taste of wheat bread and honey that transitions to a mild bite of spicy, peppery hops. The bitterness is mellowed by bready malt and a light but tangy-sweet citrus.
The feel has a smooth draw that turns grainy on the backend. It has a medium body and carbonation that’s a shade over moderate.
The Lonely Blonde ticks the boxes expected of the style. Looks and feels nice. The aroma and palate are straightforward but pleasant. The brew is light and easily crushed. Fulton Beer plays it safe, and thus, you may not be overly impressed, but you can’t argue against its solid execution.
