Bottle.An almost clear one, golden beer topped by a finger-thick white head. There’s some pale malts in the aroma, with cheesy hints. Mostly fruity. The flavor has some bitterness to deal with the pale malts. Rather fruity, with a cheesy hint. Medium to full body with soft carbonation, semi-dry. Some bitterness in the finish too. Lasting fruity finish with a good bitterness. A decent one, but nothing special going on. 140726

Very hoppy fruit aroma. Slightly cloudy golden colour with excellent head. Smokey flavour up front with hints of citrus fruit in the finish. Very creamy medium body with medium carbonation.

Pale golden beer with a bubbly head and an aroma of citrus and something I can’t quite place which I assume must be the elderflower. The flavour light and zesty with, again, what I assume to be elderflower. I’ve not had elderflower in any other form before and I suspect I’m not a fan. It’s a perfectly palatable beer and I’d certainly try the cask if I saw it but it’s not really to my taste.

Floral aroma, obvious elderflower on the nose and taste. Refreshing and zesty, I preferred the cask version though there’s not too much difference.

Moebbels (716) - FINLAND - APR 19, 2014
Pours a golden body with a minimal haziness. The white head disappears rather quickly for being a beer containing a high proportion of wheat malt. Nose is refreshing with citrus, floral and herbal notes. Taste is crisp, dry and refreshing with a medium bitter finish. Carbonation is a tad above medium and the palate is pleasantly rich for such a light beer. A perfectly good blonde ale suited for a hot summer day.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein trübes goldenes Bier mit ordentlicher Schaumkrone. Geruch fruchtig malzig, leicht hefig, hopfig. Geschmack hopfig malzig, fruchtig, leicht hefig.

Renobob (1621) - Besançon, FRANCE - APR 1, 2014
Peu d’arômes pour cette ale classique de chez classique. Peu de corpulence, peu de longueur en bouche. Pas exceptionnelle donc même si c’est buvable.

A golden ale with a thin white head. A light brew with notes of wheat and citrus with a hint of elderflower on the finish. Nothing special.

nilsas (3425) - Bryne, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2014
Duft av humle og eik. Lys gyllen farge. Tynt hvit skum på topp. Frisk og lettdrukket, noe svak søtlig ettersmak. Greit drikke øl i sommervarmen.
