3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Beer Temple in Amsterdam. Pours a hazed golden orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is somewhat floral and grainy with a mash-like sweetness to the malts. Some bread and a light grassy fruitiness. Flavor is similar. Fairly floral throughout with a bit of a fruity grass. Some bready, lightly sweetened malts without the mash-like sweetness I got on the nose. Finishes clean and dry with a moderate bitterness and a nice fruity note. Just a touch of toast in a lengthy aftertaste. Medium-light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Fruity, fairly bitter, and lightly sweet. Nice beer.

Biggish offwhite head. Hazy opaque orange body. Mealy malty mashing aroma with resiny tobacco notes. Dry-sweet delicate orangey taste with malty notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish mealy orangey aftertaste with spicy peppery notes. Nice, vivid, drinkable. (0.33l draft at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam.)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of strong grassy hops, biscuit and floral notes. Flavour of biscuity malts, strong bitterness, citrus, floral notes and caramel. Medium bodied, high carbonation and a clean bitter finish. Although a bit boring, it’s still well balanced and has good drinkability.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Beer Temple (Amsterdam, Netherlands)
Hazy blond, thin white head. Aroma really turned me off: smelled as if somebody had vomited in my glass and it had gone through a dishwasher with no soap. I thought it was a fluke with my glass, but a friend had the same beer and the aroma was the same with his. I’m still skeptical. Anyway, the taste was a considerable improvement over the aroma, but still quite average for a blonde. I might try it again somewhere else.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at Jopenkerk, Haarlem: Hazy blond brew also very dull like the other rating. Why are Blond beers lately so dull.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ennek a sörnek tényleg aranysárga színe van, amin vékony és gyorsan illanó hab van. Olyan illata van, mint az ázott fenyődeszkáknak, amik kint maradtak az esőn a gazban. Íze zöld növényes, komlós, fenyőgyantás, borsos és érdekesen keserű. Nem igazán testes és buborékos. Száraz, keserű utóíze van. Nem rossz.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at De Biertempel. Pours a murky golden color, thick sopay white head. Aromas and taste of citrus dominant hops, very floral, dry malts, little bit of caramel breadiness in the back. Further notes of marshmallow. This one is def an ipa in my book. So juicy and sessionable with a nice hop bite at the finish. Medium bodied.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Hazy golden amber pour with a white head. The nose is incredibly bland and uninteresting. A lot of bread, some toast, and a bit of straw, grass, and floral hop aroma. The flavor is really watery with a bit of bread. Some faint citrus peel, a bit of grass, and floral hops. No real bitterness to it at all. Not a fan of this.
