Buntingford Polar Star
A blonde hoppy (properly hoppy, which is not quite the same as bitter) beer. Brewed using lager malt, wheat malt and maize to give a low level of colour, and hopped exclusively with the wonderful Centennial hop from the USA (Oregon/Missouri/Washington). It has a strong pineapple/grapefruit hop character, with other citrus fruit tones lurking in the background. A beer that quite literally assaults your taste buds (in an appropriate way, of course...!)
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.
