Panzerfaust (561) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - OCT 6, 2007
2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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 wonít 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.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 didnít identify with the honey aroma. There is also a malty kick in there. Refreshing, but boring.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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 (Iíve 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.
