I’ve tried the whole Calvinus set over various visits to Geneva Airport (where it is available at the wine shop by the train station). I’d say the blonde is probably the weakest. Just rather thin by comparison to the others. Still decent though and very easy to drink.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
Bottle. Hazy yellow with half a finger of white head. Light malty, citrusy, yeasty, light spicy aroma. Taste is sweet and light malty with a bitter dry finish, floral and grassy hoppy, citrusy notes, a touch of Gunpowder. Very drinkable, better than other ratings suggests. But a pale lager? I doubt....

hoosiers1994 (684) - Maryland, USA - APR 14, 2011
330ml bottle poured into a shaker. Wanted to try a Swiss beer while I was in Geneva. This is what I could find. Smells like a mass produced American lager, pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Taste is not much better, with malty notes and no real bitterness at all. Cannot even taste the hops. Stay away.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 12, 2011
Bottled 33cl. Courtesy of Bov. Hazy pale golden appearance. Pear and walnuts throughout. Boiled vegetables (DMS) sneaking in. Poor malt presence. Mediocre hop profile. Medium bodied. Some residual sugars in the finish. Poor. Thanks a lot Bov!
