Fulton Lonely Blonde Review

Name: Fulton Lonely Blonde
Style: Blonde Ale
ABV: 4.8%

It's time to look at another offering from Fulton Brewing and this time, I have their Lonely Blonde. As you may have guessed from the name, this is indeed a Blonde Ale. I remember having this a couple years ago and found it to be pretty good so I decided to try this out and give it a proper review.

Lonely Blonde pours a hazy dark yellow color with a high amount of visible carbonation. The head has a thin white appearance and I'm not picking up on any lacing.

The nose is fairly standard in terms of blonde ales go. You have some pale maltiness with a some lager yeasts to back it on. On the very back, there is also a bit of citra hops to give it a slight kick.

As for the taste, you've got some pale malts, barley & lager yeasts right away before giving away to a and mild floral & citra hoppiness. The aftertaste, however, is quite dry. The body is also nice and crisp.

Lonely Blonde is a textbook example of how to make a good blonde ale. It won't knock anyone's socks off, but it's a pretty good yet simple tasting beer. Be sure to check it out should you get the chance.

Fulton Lonely Blonde - 8/10
