Pours a hazy orange with a thickish head. Light aroma common to blondes but lighter. Flavor is a bit sour but not really bad.

Sizzler80 (423) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 4, 2012
Dark amber, vibrant and cloudy pour with flecks of yeast and off-white cap and lacing. Aromas of hops, barley, wet grass, lemon, pine and caramel. Creamy, tart and alive on initial sip. The citrus and hops dominate on, quite hoppy. A spicy warmth lingers around for a few moments. The sweetness from the fruit and caramel are present but subdued. Great stuff! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (12683) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle. Thx sis. It pours a clear, golden body and a dense, two-finger off-white head. Fruity, sweetish and lightly piney nose, not very interesting, but quite pleasant. Medium body, pleasant carbonation. The flavor has a pleasant bitterness, as well as fruityness, and some pale malts in the far back. Pleasantly bitter finish. Well, nothing super special going on, but it’s a fine drinking beer. 120330

Cask at L Mulligan Grocer, Dublin on 30th September 2011. Hazy gold with thin head and partial lacing. Very yeasty, cheesy aroma. Thickly hoppy and citric - grass and grapefruit in good supply. Aftertaste very citric. Smoothish mouthfeel.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2012 50cl bottle. Pours deep hazy gold with decent bright white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, grass, almost belgian-blonde yeast notes. Taste has a good degree of hop flavour, again plenty of citrus, few tropical notes, very interesting complexity from the yeast - pleasant surprise. Biscuity sweetness of the malt provides a good balance to the hop notes. Smooth mouthfeel with a satisfying degree of bitterness in the finish. Very tasty blonde ale.
