4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pretty good floral hop aroma for a blonde. Wow, what a great surprise! Seems more like a pale ale almost to me, but is excellent nonetheless. Can a blonde ale be my favorite from a brewery??

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz brown bottle from the Lighthouse in Manchester. Pours an amber-yellow clear body with a half inch of off-white head that slowly dissipates. Smells biscuity with some diacetyl/butterscotch. Tastes like caramel and biscuit, with husky and butterscotchy notes toward the finish. Overall flavor is somewhat muted. Light in body with moderate carbonation. Very drinkable, a solid example for the style.

12oz bottle. Pour is a deep gold with only wisps of white lace on the top. Aroma is a very pleasant sweet lemon. There is also some kinds of spice, but its slightly sweet and citric. Really nice. The flavor is equally nicely balanced. I’m really enjoying this blond. Surprising?

aroma is lightly sweet and honey. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow with active carbonation yet minimal head. Taste is slighty bready/grainy up front with a touch of sour and pepper from the hops. Finish is crisp and nicely balanced. A bit thin on flavor but for such a light ale it is fairly complex.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I tried a bottle on 20th May at the start of the summer. The is a great beer for summer afternoons or evening sessions with the lads. The colour is light but it has way more flavour than a mass produced lager. And it’s organic so no nasty chemicals.

This is not your typical blonde ale- and I was more than ok with that. Pours a cloudy muddy orange colour with a medium sized white floral head. Aroma is particularly hoppy. Strong floral accents. Similar to what you would find in a flower garden on a warm spring day. Flavor is slightly hopped, fruity with a touch of spice in the finish. Great beer, and like i said my kind of blonde!!
