Caytinator (900) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Tap pint @ Hootnanny, Inverness. Bright yellow color, tiny collar, good lacing. Low carbonation. Aroma is predominantly hoppy. There’s a thistle on the logo, so it’s appropriate that it tastes "prickly". Not what I was expecting out of a blonde lager, almost an IPA - I taste wild grasses. Good body throughout, from tip to tail.

Bottle. Classic lager appearance, This is at the top end of pale lagers - credit to Black isle for making a good beer in what is generally a poor style.

TBone (12479) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 27, 2012
Bottled 500ml (K-Kamppi, BB 03/2013, alc. 4.5 %)
Clear golden color, small white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, pale maltyness and yeast. Light bodied, crisp carbonation, oily palate. Citrus, lemon zest, sweet fruityness in the pale malty flavor. Nothing fancy but balanced and tasty beer for this ABV. This doesn’t taste as a lager. More ale-like.

Bov (9371) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 27, 2012
from Bier-Bienne - hazy blond beer with a poor foam left; fruity and gently grassy hoppiness; medium-bodied and tasty, some tart bitterness and quite dry, short and refreshing dry and fruity hoppy finish - very drinkable

oh6gdx (20272) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 27, 2012
Bottled (from K Citymarket Lielahti, Tampere), 4.5 %. Golden colour, mediumsized slightly off-white head. Aroma is fruits, bread, mild grainy and wooden notes as well as quite a nice big herbal touch. Flavour is fruity, floral, grainy and mildly earthy. Big time hoppy floral fiinish. No haze noted in colour even though pouring all the bottle contents in. A "lager" that tasted quite much like a golden ale... The commercial description on the bottle says: "A premium quality blonde beer with a light biscuit palate and a fresh, grassy aroma". Kind of works, but if this pretends to be a lager (As the RB description says) I say FAIL. Is this a different brew from the original Organic Blonde?
