bhensonb (10343) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 6, 2009
650 ml bottle from Monoprix, swingtop. Poured pale gold with a five finger white head. Light dusty aroma, sort of floral. Medium body with lots of fine bubbled carbonation. Flavor is light malt with notes of citrus. Finishes clean and dryish. It’s an excellent light beer. Really thirst quenching and refreshing.

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2009
Bottled, 650ml. Hazed gold with light head. After the Cuvee de Noel, this was pretty bland. Herby, flowery hop with a thin malt body, some carbonation and a slight papery note. Not too much to recommend it.
