Skinners Cornish Blonde (500ml Bottle)
A combination of the highest quality wheat malt and British and American hops makes this lightly coloured wheat beer deceptively easy to drink with a superb citrus finish.
Pours a hazy golden with a small head. Nose isn’t strong, some citrus and resinous hops, pleasent enough. A bit sweet and a light bitter finish with some citrus on the aftertaste. Goes down easy. Body is a bit light and a tad watery, but a spot on beer for drinking in the sun.
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.
