3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Nederlands Biercafe ‘t Arendsnest. Pours a pale orange body with a small, white head. Aroma is grassy hops with some mildly fruity hints. Palate is stunningly smooth, this beer practically jumps down my throat by itself! :-) Taste is pale malts, grassy hops and hints of fruity hops; a very mild golden ale which could pass for a "session IPA" of sorts. No traces of the relatively high ABV. Probably a good alternative for people who aren’t used to craft beer, or as an alternative session ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A smooth refreshing fruity blonde ale. Basic but pleasant session beer.
How: Tap at Beer Temple, Amsterdam
The look: Almost clear blonde body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose has some tropical fruits and meringue. Taste is very smooth and mostly fruity. Refreshing fruit salad and lemon pie with meringue were the dominant flavors to me. Soft velvety body. Not very tasty. But no defaults either. Just a basic refreshing session beer. Smoother than a hairbrush made of schizophrenic Russian virgins pubic hair. Maybe.
