COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised.
This delicious, premium blonde ale from Fuller’s is the perfect combination of unbeatable flavour and refreshment.
Brewed using a unique blend of malted barley and wheat for a delicious malty taste bursting with rich, biscuity flavours, Liberty hops are then added for a distinctive zesty character and fruity bite, whilst Saaz hops add a gentle bitter taste for a clean, refreshing finish.
In cask, Discovery is 3.9% ABV, while in bottles the strength is 4.5% ABV.
Discovery tastes great served chilled, and its light, refreshing character makes it a perfect accompaniment to many foods.

allmyvinyl (2173) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 6, 2013
500ml bottle at home. Pours clear pale gold, thin white head. Aromas are honey and light citrus. Taste has a bit of zest, more honey sweet. Finish is ok, lemony. Not bad.

Unde (288) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
Golden ale with small head. Honey malt aroma with mild wheat. Hints of wheat on the taste but mainly honey malts and some citrus bitterness at the end. Not awesome but good.

vinivini (296) - BELARUS - SEP 7, 2013
Deep golden with white porous head. Light body. Nose: floral, spice, hay. Similar taste. No reason to be displeased indeed. It’s just not my direction of beer.

jmgreenuk (3563) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 19, 2013
Bottle from one of the supermarkets. Poured a clear medium amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is fruity malt leading to a rich, zesty citrus fruit malty flavour. This was served cold on a very hot day and I have to say it hit the mark. I’ve drunk this many times before and it always satisfies. If all blonde beers were like this then I think the style might be be more popular. I prefer the bottled version to the draft.

Golden colour. Aroma of fruits. Tastes sweet and is really light to drink. Not much carbonation. Perfect beer for summer time for easy drinking.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - JUN 27, 2013
A golden beer with an almost medium and white head. The nose is fresh, malts, some fruits and grass, simple but aromatic enough. Taste of malts, sligthly sweet, honey, some fruits, unfortunately also slightly musty hops in the finish. Light+ bodied, easy and light to drink. Easy and refreshning beer.

kidmartinek (3307) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Light golden color. Fruity lemon zest aroma. Tons of bubbles. Effervescent on the palate. Zesty lemon and malt flavor. Once again... very good for such a sessionable beer. That’s the impressive thing about these English bitters, they have a tons of flavor and body for being so low in alcohol... a really nice feature it seems American microbreweries have not mastered yet.

Lilja (1391) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, frukt. Alldeles för tunn och vattning kropp. Doftar dessvärre mycket mer än det smakar.
