GoufCustom (874) - HONG KONG - JUN 30, 2014


330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Time Square, Causeway Bay.

Clear light golden orange colour with no yeast sediments; One finger head and crumpety white foam which lasts for 1 minute; Very good sticky lacing and fizzy small carbonation;Slight aroma of full malt, with faint floral, sugar, molasses notes, very light ester, strong bread and dough, yeast and faint grass; Medium sweet taste of full malt, with light caramel, molasses, thick bread, strong dough, yeast, light lime and very light bitter grassy hops; Medium body. Dry, thick and smooth palate; Mouth feel is very straight forward BdG: full lager malt, very smooth, bready / doughty and yeasty with strong caramel undertone. Sweetness is matching mid-to-low with more molasses than sugar. Low hops and not much else, simple… Hoppiness is faint floral and grass in nose, light lime and very low grassy hops in taste. Bitterness is very low-fi for a malty, very low bitter finish; Dry after taste. Easy and malty sweet to mouth.

Comments: This one feels like a very rich and smooth Lager more than a strong Pale Ale as BdG goes, it still keep the style’s basic elements like caramel tones, yeastiness and dry palate. So simple as it may, it’s a quaffable good meal alternative in the Summer. Okay.

Nose is yeast, straw, slight peach. Taste follows with an odd lactose note in the finish. Forgettable.

loco_gallego (146) - SWITZERLAND - JUN 6, 2014
Blonde légèrement orangée. Peu de mousse, peu persistante. Un goût malté, très légèrement houblonné. Fin de bouche avec petite amertume qui dénote et fait son charme.

Quite malty sweetness. Really light, but pretty dynamic for a light beer. This would be perfect on float trips.

gildnerk (132) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw yellow with very little white head. Weak aromas of hay, lemon and grass. The taste is surprisingly malty with limited bitterness and a relatively dry finish. The palate is rather flat and thin for a blonde. Not bad, not great.
