COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Filtered, and lagered but unpasteurised.
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.

Light pale beer, very malty flavour and aroma. Generally a pleasant beer.

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 (2038) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2002
Bottled. Very pale, lively carbonation. The flavour was too full bodied in my opinion, and a little sour.

SilkTork (5218) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, 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]

eddieerb99 (4) - battle creek, Michigan, USA - AUG 31, 2002 does not count
One of the best french ales, light in color but robust and full flavored a great summer drink, the blonde is a big step up from the brown. This squeeks by 3 monts as the best French ale

caesar (5183) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 23, 2002
Tastes a bit like a pilsener. Nothing special. Smells bad. Appearance is nice pale, with small but lasting head. Taste is bit sweet, watery. Dry palate.

mwesth (279) - Skovlunde, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Fruit and vanilla in the aroma. The taste developes a lot in the glass, so don’t drink it too quick.
