3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Refermented version of Bush Blonde celebrating the 75th anniversary of the brand in 2008, only on 75 cl, like its amber counterpart. Sticky, snow white, creamy, relatively thick foam, colour a deep peach blonde, clearly darker than the regular version, misty. Aroma of mango, honey, apricot, orange, caramel, cognac; taste sweetish in onset, bit of candi or honey, orange peel touch gives some freshness, then honeyish and caramel maltiness, sweetish, finishing dry with aromatic hops and lots of warming alcohol which becomes a bit astringent in the end. Yeastier, softer and more well-rounded than the regular version.

Palate: Medium+ body with full, creamy effervescence.
