From our Brewmaster, Charles: “Mr. Blonde is our lightest offering. A Belgian blonde ale, this beer is smooth and refreshing with low bitterness and alcohol. Brewed with Pilsen malt, and magnum hops.”
By the numbers:
- 12 IBU’s
- 4.5% ABV
What to expect:
Mr. Blonde is the perfect step up to craft beer purity if your only experience with beer so far originates in Golden, Colorado. No, it’s not a “lite beer” per se. But, it’s not going to bowl you over either. It’s mellow, smooth, and refreshing. The perfect companion for just about any occasion. For a bright and fruity alternative, try Mr. Pink, our tart cherry-infused version of Mr. Blonde.

Some history to sip on: Blonde ales are very pale in color. Blondes 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 Styrian Golding and Cascade. Alcohol is in the 4% to 5% abv range. Belgian blondes are often made with pilsner malt. (via Wikipedia)
