3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a thin, frothy head. It has a floral, citrus aroma and the flavour follows suit but with a hoppy hit and a light but distinct bitter, fruity twang to it aswell. It seemed a touch underwhelming at first and there’s not a great deal of aftertaste but it’s definitely growing on me as I go along.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle shared at home. Hazy golden yellow with thin white head. Aromas of cereal, brown sugar and flowery soap. Soapiness gets bigger on the aftertaste. Low carbonation. OK, but didn’t really enjoy this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This is a milky-straw yellow one, quite cloudy and it has a small light bubbly and sidesticking head. The nose has candied sugar, wheat, some yeast traces, bubblegum and some sweetness. It’s thin and almost watery on the mouthfeel with a below average carbonation level. It’s quite pungent this. Especially in the aftertaste. Starts off quite bitter, some grapefruit then it turns pungent - line the white part on the lemon zest. Not my cup of beer. 05.01.2012

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a clear light straw yellow with a medium frothy white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is fruity and floral, leading to a medium bitter, zesty, hoppy flavour with some hints of fruit and honey. As blondes go, it’s not bad at all. Don’t be tempted to serve it too cool. The flavours in this one only developed after it warmed up a little in the Malaysian heat

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle. Cloudy golden with a good head. Very light aroma with not much to speak of. Light apple flavours, a touch of grassiness and just a mild note of toast and malt. Moderate bitter finish. Pleasant but not exceptional for this kind of beer.
