[610-20070914] 500mL. Vine leaf and earth cask aroma has some malt and some nice notes of roast beef wheat. Clear, orange amber body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Sweet wheaty malt flavour has hints of good bandaid. Medium body. Drinkable, even fine warm (but not for long), maybe +1 for organic.

Bottle. Clear amber with a medium-sized froth. Potent flowery and spicy honey aroma. Sweet flavours initially, some graininess, countered by good bitterness. Quite alright.

50 cL bottle, given two me by my to great sons for fathers day. Pours golden yellow/orange with a little dense white head. Smooth and slight carbonated mouthfeel. Distinct honey aroma on top of a mild caramel malt base, a bit sharp. Flavour is honey, more sharp than sweet. Ends however quite sweet yet quite well balanced. Nice.

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.
