Aroma

Noble hops give the aroma a spicy kick that’s gently backed by a hint of grain. But a scent of wheat bread begins to assert itself as the beer warms.

Flavor

The palate is led by a taste of wheat bread and honey that transitions to a mild bite of spicy, peppery hops. The bitterness is then mellowed by bready malt and a light but tangy-sweet citrus.

Mouthfeel

The feel has a smooth draw that turns grainy on the back end. It has a medium body and carbonation that’s a shade over moderate.

Overall

The Lonely Blonde ticks all the boxes expected of the style. It looks lovely in the glass. Its aroma and palate are straightforward but pleasant. The brew has a light and crisp feel that makes it easily crushed. You might say that Fulton Beer plays it safe, and thus, may not be overly impressed. But you certainly can’t argue against its solid execution.
