Welcome to the Drink in the Sights Stud Blonde from Hambleton Brewery Beer Review. I think I'm about half way through my current gluten free beer selection so I'll have to consider going shopping again soon. Hambleton Brewery are based in Ripon where they've been going since 1991, so I guess that makes them pretty well established now. To the best of my knowledge they only have two gluten free beers so I'm half way through them now. Stud Blonde from Hambleton Brewery comes in a 500ml bottle and contains a pretty standard 4.3% alcohol. The beer pours a slightly hazy orange with a reasonable white head. I have to say at this point that this is one of the most bubbly beers I've seen that isn't a lager, but I'm not really sure if that's a good thing or not.
Stud Blonde from Hambleton Brewery has a hoppy summer fruits aroma with some pineapple coming through just to mix things up a bit. The feel is light, but still very lively, almost like drinking a sparkling wine. The taste is nice though with the hoppy fruits coming through clearly. You'll also get a proper crisp feel, a bit of apple, and a healthy amount of malts to balance things out nicely. I'm not really much of a light beer drinker but Stud Blonde from Hambleton Brewery is just about good enough to convert anyone to the light side. It's crisp, it's sweet, it's refreshing, and it's quite moreish. 8 out of 10.
