Launched in 2000 as Jenlain Blonde. Changed to Jenlain No. Six in March 2005, with Jenlain Blonde name being used for a new 7.5% beer.
With its splendid golden hues and fruity tones, Jenlain No. Six has a distinctive bitter finish and a hoppy nose. The barley-scented liquor sparkles under its light, foamy head. Light and thirst-quenching, with a rich characteristic savour, it is best served at between 5 and 6°C, with a meal or as an aperitif.

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 8, 2003
Grassy, hoppy aroma, golden, with a fluffy white head, nice lace. Grassy,and malty at first, good bitterness follows, almost a green grape taste too. Pleasantly bitter, good carbonation, dry finish. Enjoyable beer, but it seemed like a Pilsner?

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 2, 2003
Rich gold, moderate carbonation, thin head. Aroma of apple skins, white bread, grassy noble hop notes, slight corn syrup (not dms, though), and canned peaches. A hint of crispness at the outset is soon countered by a slightly plasticy cloying note. Moderate bitterness then cuts in with woody accents - not like real trees but maybe some spindly sidewalk conifer. The flavour development comes to a rather abrupt halt with a hint of acidity and a fading grainy finish.

JPDIPSO (5107) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 31, 2003
Hazy light golden color with a fluffy white head. Sweet, papery, perfumy hops aroma with light undertones of sweet malt. A sweet near cloying blonde ale. Light malt and perfumy flavors continue throughtout the sample. Somewhat like a sweet lager.

Allseeingeye (223) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 20, 2002
Cloudy golden color. Spritzy and dry. Big on aroma, fruit. spices. flowers, flour, ’wood’?. Sweet start with a biting dry finish.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2002
Bottled. Very pale, lively carbonation. The flavour was too full bodied in my opinion, and a little sour.

SilkTork (5407) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 19, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 Sept, 2002. Jenlain Blonde, Bottle Full mouth - over sweet. A little too thick to be refreshing, and not enough variety to make interesting. [2.0]
March 2003 Jenlain Blonde, Bottle Hops are quite flowery in a Pilsner style with that hint of hay which suggests Saaz. Nose is honey yeast. Finish is mildly spicy. Other than a fairly firm mouthfeel this comes across as a bottom fermented beer. [2.4]
June, 2006 Jenlain Six, Can. Like the Jenlain Amber this tastes like a pale lager with a touch of speciality malt. The speciality malts gives a touch of must and rosemary. There’s some sweet fruit in the finish. An unremarkable lager, though quite drinkable. [2.0]
Oct, 2010 Jenlain Six, Can. Leclerc, Valreas. Stale tap water and light mineral notes. No awareness of strength. Modest fruit and malt. Modest all round. [2.1]
