Anchor Blood Orange Blond (355ml Bottle)
We are excited to present our refreshingly unique craft-brew, Anchor’s Blood Orange Blonde™. The delectable fruit of the blood orange—deep crimson in color, with enticingly rich aroma and tangy-sweet juiciness—provides a distinctive twist to this blonde ale.
Blood Orange Blonde gets some of its citrusy aroma in the brewhouse, where California orange peels are added to the brewkettle. Most of the action, however, is in the cellar, where the blood orange fruit (we use the Sanguinello cultivar) is added during secondary fermentation. Its taste combines the succulent complexity of blood oranges with mild hop bitterness, subtle malty sweetness, and a long, dry finish.
Golden Ale/Blond Ale
There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional "Canadian Ale", an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs - a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up - very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
