2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(33cl bottle, traded with DerDoppelbock) Hazy, golden colour with big yeast chunks swimming around and a medium-sized foamy white head. Sweet and perfumed malty nose with citrus and lemon peel. Sweet malty taste, again a bit perfumed (violets?) with light fruity notes; lively carbonated mouthfeel, medium body; malt-accented, slightly yeasty and bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottled, BBE 04/2009 Slightly hazy golden with a medium, foamy head. Sweetish, straightforward aroma with hints of honey and acidity. Quite acidic, malty, neutral-papery flavor with nothing much in it. Medium-bodied, slightly foamy, acidic palate. No yeast in the bottom to save the situation, but does hide the alcohol very well. If you’re into acidic, tasteless blondes, try this – otherwise look elsewhere for tastier and better balanced stuff.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 33 cl) Yellowish golden, decent fluffy head. Slightly flowery, fresh nose. Lots of carbonation but little malt or hops for that matter. Still a pleasant very drinkable blonde ale - although it lacks som refinement. 030695
