lusikka (7649) - Tampere, - MAR 23, 2012
500 ml bottle. BBE 03/2013.
Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pale malts, biscuits, hay and grass. Flavour of strong malts, biscuits, citrus, grassy hops and hay. Some sweet honey and citrus notes as well. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a light, bitter and malty finish with some pleasant citrusy notes. Really good for a pale lager, clearly the best I’ve had so far from this style.

wyldeturkey101 (25) - - JUN 7, 2016
Pours an almost clear yellow, vibrant with colour, with a white head. Flavour and smell fall flat, though still a refreshing drink.

ManVsBeer (8059) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 26, 2016
Bottle from Booths, Media City. Lightly hazed with an extremely thin head. Has a mild fizz in the palate with a crisp, lager-malt fruitiness, but not overly stated in the latter aspect. Blonde in colour, but not really in style.

MissPxx (959) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2015
A bit fizzy as you'd expect. Quite a flowery taste but hardly any aroma. Very sweet and tastes like sweet honey. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Godfather50 (175) - SCOTLAND - NOV 19, 2015
Dissapointingly lacking in both carbonation and freshness. Never sure about Scottish breweries adopting a blonde. Improved slightly as the glass emptied - but expected better.

Flasche 0,5l: Helles Gold mit kräftigem feinporigem Schaum; frische, leicht süße Nase mit leichten Hopfenaromen, etwas Zitrus und Apfelessig; angenehmer, leicht süßer Körper mit etwas Malz, kräftigen Hopfennoten und fruchtiger Bitterkeit

shoestring (347) - larkhall, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2015 Bit wishy washy but did like it. Nothing spectacular but passable and would like to try in draught if done. No head retention. Lager lookalike. Bit floral citrus . Improved as it warmed

500ml, brown bottle, cork and cask. Pours light pale with a thin white head subsiding quickly. Scent is light pale malt. Taste is light lager, little skunk. Little bitter. Finish is little acid/vomit. Fine.

Lonick (1143) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 25, 2015
Bottle @home. Pours yellow with a thin-ish white head. Almost wine like on the nose, odd, some grass/hay notes. Nice bitterness to the finish with a touch of caramel sweetness.
