The blonde ale brew was awwnnn… I call my blonde ale “The Ol’Durty Blonde”… because it is more of a Golden Ale… a little darker then most blonde ales
So what exactly is a blonde ale?
A blonde ale is what most home brewers and craft beer gooroos would consider a transition beer from commercial beers into craft beers.
Somewhat of an introduction craft beer if you will… oh yeah! Yea
A blonde ale is typically a dry beer with light to medium malt taste. Also has a lowish to medium bitterness from hops. Its aroma for the most part is minimal. It may have a little bit of a slight fruity flavor.
The color of blonde ales range from light yellow to a light golden color. My Ol’Durty Blonde is more towards the golden color.
Carbonation can be towards the medium to high end.
It is what I would consider as the closest you could get an ale to look and taste like a lager.
Now as you will see in my taste test something happened to this batch of my Ol’Durty… I missed my OG and ABV was much lower then it should have been, coming in at 3.5’ish instead of the 4.9% it should have been.
My Big Robb genius rationale for this having occurred is because my grains were about 4-5 months old and they were already crushed… Dig It!?!
However the beer turned out just fine… I could see myself cranking numerous amounts of these down on a hot sunny summer day… yeah!
Alright on with the show!! (P.s… if you want to brew up the Ol’Durty, the recipe is at the bottom of this page)
