harrisoni (15793) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2011
Halfpint County Hotel JDW Ashford. Pale gold colour with lasting thin white head. Aroma of cereal with a touch of corn. Some faint lemon on the finish. Fairly tasteless but better than the Fosters before it. The lemon hop on finish is ok

JorisPPattyn (8799) - Ursel, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2011
Huge, fine yellowish head, whipped eggwhite-like, over straw-golden, well-carbonated beer. Sharpish malt nose, toast, corn. Again corn & sweet malts, white candi sugar, and utterly nothing else. OK, dried sugared hay. Supposedly ’refreshing’. With all that sugar, highly unlikely. Finish is somewhat drier. Utterly superfluous beer. Dumb blonde indeed.

Light golden coloured and clear. Has a white head, lasting. Light sweet, fruity aroma. Flavor is sweet too, faint bitterness. Not much going on here. Watery.

chriso (7512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 9, 2011
From keg at the Nags Head, Reading on 27 April 2011. I’m pretty sure this version for the British market is actually brewed in the UK (probably at the Royal brewery in Manchester, alongside such other classics as Fosters). The same beer is however, brewed for other markets elsewhere so probably best to leave it under the "home" brewery. Pale blond colour. Very slight hop oil element to the aroma. A little bready. Absolutely no flavour. Sweetish and watery. Too innocuous to be offensive. Take a dull Dutch beer and dumb it down even more for the UK market an what do you expect?
