radiomgb (2504) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 7, 2012
Clear golden yellow in colour with a thin lasting white head, good lacing. The aroma is grassy, herbal, toasty, soapy. The flavour is a bit bitter, light sweetness, toasty and grassy, some cereal. Lightly bitter mouthfeel, light body, moderate carbonation. Finishes long, toasty, bitter, thin.

Its okay, easy to drink but lacking in flavour.

Opened on June 3, 2011.
Best before September 2012.

Bottle from Le Bon Marché, Paris
Blond color, with small head and nice perlage. Both aroma and flavor are characterized by a clear straws, grains presence. It’s quite dry and also malty, with decent bitterness and some grassy hops. Pleasant but not mindblowing.

patricks110 (2071) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 23, 2012
Better than the Bronze. Pours a bright straw golden body with a two finger white head. Nice tart lemon and floral hop aroma. A hint of toasty malts in the middle with East Kent Golding hops and a light spice and citrus hop finish. overall, a nice Bitter.

Clear gold beer. Short white head. Light dry palate. Creamy dry malt. Seamless join to fresh hops that impart orange and little grapefruit. Malt turns slightly soapy before the dry finish. Bitter aftertaste. Not bad.

shaynsawchuk (664) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 11, 2012
500 mL bottle. Pours honey brown with a thin white head, leaving lots of lacing as it goes. Picked up an unpleasant, bile like sulfurous note at the beginning that seems to blow off a little; flawed batch? As that subsides, aromas of malt and citrus, lemon, kaffir lime, ginger. Sweet and malty without a lot going on, slimy mouth feel. Reminds me too much of commercial Canadian beers. Wouldn’t buy again.

Crockett (1032) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 10, 2012
Pours light orange gold with a short lived white soapy head. Nose of citrus, grass and sweet toasted malts. Has a weird chalky mouthfeel seemingly brought on by the peppery carbonation. That’s distracting. Even bitterness. Notes of caramel, fresh bread crusts, and yeast. Finish is just a little un-clean.

1 finger head. carbinaed,gold. smells light n sweet. Agressive bitter grassy & sourish hops. Feels odd in belly. Watching possable final stanly cup game while drinking this. The native storm one I also have and wll have next. This one is just a leminy,orange,grassy bitter hoped ale that has a lightly gross sweetness and it sites odd in belly. Don’t taste like a 4.2% beer at all. Not crap,but not great Not how I would perfer my ale biskity aftertaste. Cheer’s.

Stop number two on our blonde-ales-of-the-world tour: Wales, birthplace of Tom Jones. That fucker knew how to party! This poured a brighter yellow gold than Angler, with a livelier head. Aroma is more grainy, with pithier citrus (white grapefruit). Clean, lighter, citrus and grain flavours with floral undertones. The hops are pretty subdued here though. Still, clean, fresh and pleasant.
