Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - OCT 6, 2007
Pours a clear bronze/orange color. Head is medium white and diminishes quickly. It leaves a fair lacing. Aroma is soft, rather fruity with herbal hops and with a light malty touch. Some fruits come out like oranges and dry apricots complemented by a grainy hint. Like an oversweet yellow/orange fruit salad. Flavor is sweet with honey traces and sweet citrusy touches. Soft tangerine and orange taste with clear grainy touches in the back. OK. Light to medium body. Carbonation is soft but lively. Simple, refreshing. Finish is dull, nothing special. Decent aftertaste but also nothing special. Underwhelming.

Surprisingly I found I liked this beer. Golden yellow, nose of honey, yeast and citrus. Some carbonation. Flavour was subtely sweet and a touch of bittterness ensured it was not sickeningly so.

Had this blonde once from sainsbury- probably won’t purchace again considering Fullers similarly priced offerings. Aroma of honey, andsomehops with a slightly floral and perhaps herby note. Flavours of honey and malt, though overall this beer lacks character.

Golden colour with almost no head.Hoppy aroma with sweet warm note of honey feels flat and thin with short finish.

Bobsy (194) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 24, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 Bottle from the LCBO. Nice golden colour, but no head. Aroma of honey was not overpowering, and I liked the subtlety it implied. Flavour was sweet, but too me it was a generic sweetness, and didn’t identify with the honey aroma. There is also a malty kick in there. Refreshing, but boring.

Golden beer with almost no head. Sweet malty aroma. A very simple flavor that adds to the overall impression of a very boring beer indeed.

wilderthanyou (758) - Guelph, CANADA - SEP 5, 2007
A golden yellow beer with a quickly diminishing head. Aroma starts out with some floral hops, but as the beer warms the more the aroma becomes primarily honey. The flavour is dominated by honey, with a malty finish. Another above average beer from fullers.

Flaske. Svag duft af honing som ikke træder igennem i smagen. Forholdsvis kedelig øl.

probstblueribbon (2892) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 26, 2007
500 mL bottle from LCBO, served cold in a tulip glass. AU25/07

App.: Medium golden, clear, smallish white froth. Aroma: Some honey, light brown sugar, bread crust, lightly floral. Palate: Medium body and medium-light carbonation; just a touch astringent. Flav.: Fruity, a bit of sweetness, could be honey..., a touch floral and a little brown sugar.

Bee, for Boring.

JesseM (1151) - Margaritaville, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2007
Pours a nice golden colour with a slight orange tint to it, and a small white head. The aroma is sort of non-distinct malts, maybe some hops, a little corn, some skunk too (I’ve found that to be typical of this style). The initial flavours are just malts, kind of simple, but nice. Followed by some corn, then a tiny hop bite. The hops seem to be somewhat non-existent, and alcohol comes through in the finish as well. The aftertaste is really where the honey becomes evident, but I suppose it could also be contributing to the smooth and thick(ish) body and mouth-feel. Over-all a decent brew, I have yet to find a golden/blonde ale that I really like a lot though.
