Blond Beer

Blond Ales

Blond or Blonde ales are very pale in colour. The term "Blond" for pale beers is popular in Europe - particularly in France, Belgium and the UK, though the beers may not have much in common, other than colour.

Blonds tend to be clear, crisp, and dry, with low-to-medium bitterness and aroma from hops, and some sweetness from malt. Fruitiness from esters may be perceived. A lighter body from higher carbonation may be noticed.

In the United Kingdom, golden or summer ales were developed in the late 20th century by breweries to compete with the pale lager market. A typical golden ale has an appearance and profile similar to that of a pale lager. Malt character is subdued and the hop profile ranges from spicy to citrus; common hops include fruity Styrian Golding and Cascade.

Belgian Blonds are often made with pilsner malt. Some beer writers regard Blond and golden ales as distinct styles, while others do not. Duvel is a typical Belgian golden Strong ale, and one of the most popular bottled beers in the country as well as being well-known internationally.
