rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 5, 2006
On draught at Delirium Café, Göteborg. Charneol colour, big cottony head. Bit sourish and vinegary in aroma. Flavour is not as sour/vinegary and has that taffy apple touch. Sour meets sweet here. Pretty much of residual sugars, bit sticky.

275ml bottle from Franglais, Calais. Gold/copper colour with thin white head. Yeasty pale malt/cereal aroma. Bit of staleness to the malt which then becomes more juicy in the mouth. Yeah, not a bad blonde with some herbyness

I was expecting a harsher flavor on this one, but it was quite mild, and drank quickly,abit of citrus, still can´t believe how quickly I got through this one! good overall.

pivo (2618) - GERMANY - DEC 18, 2005
Yellow-gold color, foamy head. Yeasty aroma, though not so strong. Soft pale malt body with a hints of orange and vanilla. Quick tappering end with a brief spicy hop flavor. OK balance, quick and overall refreshing.

DonMagi (5595) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2005
I am not a fan of blondes or triples, i just dont dig them at all. Pours good golden, lasting head. Aroma is buttery, with sweetish yeasty notes. Taste is better, citrius fruits(orange and lime), good sweetness goes with soem fresh hops and a balanced finish. Suprising here, very easy to drink and far better than most blondes.

bask (305) - Leuven, BELGIUM - OCT 30, 2005
Clear bright yellow colour, white head. Yeasty and hoppy aroma, floral, dough, citrus, leaves. Easy to drink citrus taste, with a hoppy finish. Soft mouthfeel. Not very special, but a good beer.
