2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bright orange gold with irregularly sized bubbles and a depleting, sudsy white head. Bready, starchy and oddly yeasty nose with just a little caramelised lemon conserve sweetness. Gassy and watery thin on the palate. A sharp, weedy hop backend is outstanding atop some sunny toasted grain flavours. Moderately bitter with a rubbery aftertaste that thankfully fades quickly. Subtle honey-like sweetness saves it from the monotone as it warms. The mouthfeel becoming more and more soapy as it goes too. A disappointing Blonde Ale. Nothing works!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from 0.5l bottle @ Ølfestival København 2012. A near clear straw-golden one with a small and quickly sidesticking just off-white head. The aroma is light hoppy, some acidity also. Citrus and malts. Not extreme. It has a thin and almost watery texture and it’s average carbonated. Feels at first light sweet in the mouth but the hops kicks in after a while and makes is somewhat fruity. More citrus and perhaps some peachy tones here as well. Ends light mouthdrying in a lasting finish. Not bad! 10.05.2012
