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

ACD (634) - Dublin, IRELAND - FEB 25, 2012
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.
