Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a big white head. Spicy yeasty aroma and a sweet yeasty taste. Medium body and a sweet dry finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A havy honey color with a small white head. Clover honey and yeast in the nose. Sweet, floral taste with a crisp dry finish. Not great but not bad either.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color. Too simple aroma. Average taste, with some malt, spices; but ends too dry and metallic, with a bread impression.

Quite sourish brew. Very yeasty, though, and bad. A weak and watery body.

Bottled, thanks Bov!
Deep golden, slightly hazy, rich head. Honey aroma. Sweet, rounded and malty with a touch of hops. A mild, lightly fruity beer that doesn’t stick out, but remains pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
white, creamy head, mostly diminishing and good lacing. Blond, cloudy body. Hoppy, citric aroma. Lightly bitter initial flavour, heavily bitter finish. Tasted like a real pilsener, only the mouthfeel is a little bit stronger.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale orange - greenish shine. Very well set white head, slowly collapsing, lacey. Flowery nose, first very malty - and more than just pale malt. Then a soapy -hops aroma comes on, once the head is fully build. Fairly neutral, even flat taste with a fruity background. After some time, a retronasal flavour emerges, composed of a roasted and a metallic component. Something tells me this has been cooked on a very direct flame. It's not really unpleasant - no need to condemn it out of hand. Pineapple finish. Reasonably light-bodied. Well carbonated, not fizzy. It's OK - but I'm far from overawed.

Aroma of sweet apples. Very fruity flavor (sweet apples and pear), just a bit grassy. Some hopbitterness. Drinkable, but unexciting beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer pours a slightly hazy lemon yellow with a modest creamy white head, as it erodes; the lace left behind a fine covering sheet. Nose is dominated by the malt, crisp and somewhat musty with the start all malt, and the top middling in its feel to the palate. Finish has a crisp acidic bite, the hops understated as is the alcohol, quite dry aftertaste. Average would be my best rating, but then I’m not partial to “Blondes”, “Beer that is”!

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2004 Milky blond with big head wiht a clear hop aroma. Taste: Something has over cooked! There is an unpleasant taste of something burned. The beer is not out of date and Ol_junta_64 does not have another bottle :-( I will give this one another try some day.
