3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden body with a medium white top. Smell is floral hops and grass, with hints of pepper. Taste is floral hoppy bitterness with hints of spruce, grapefruit and light malts to balance. Long, bitter finish. Crisp and dry. For a beer of this caliber - a light blonde ale / bitter - Trashy Blonde packs a right decent punch. Good, though not fantastic. Props for the excellent combination of flavorfullness and drinkability.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.33 l bottle at Vihreä Haltiatar, Jyväskylä. Copper to golden color. Firm lemony, herbal, peppery and slightly sweaty hop aroma. The flavor is dominated by strong hard fruity bitterness with lemon, tropical fruits and some biscuity maltiness in the background. Sharp carbonation. Bitterness is too rough and hard but this went down fairly well after bicycling in hot weather.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: APR 11, 2011 Excellent modern interpretation of a golden ale. Color is dark yellow, not really amber. Medium long fantastic white head. Aroma is strongly fruity (pineapple and orange/grapefruit), grass and a bit of honey.
Light sweetness taste with fantastic strong bitter end. Medium-long mouthfeel, astringent, medium body, soft carbonation. It’s true that this is a perfect beer for huge drinking.
