Zlotta (1209) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2015
0,5 l bottle from Scotia Spirit, best before august 2015. Minimally hazy, pale golden yellow with a thin, frothy, slowly diminishing, white head. Nice, citrusy aroma of lemon zest and orange with hints of vanilla. Very refreshing, slightly bitter and citrusy taste of lemon zest, grapefruit and pineapple as well as cereals and vanilla. Good! Crisp, medium bitter finish. Thin body but not watery, spritzy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Very refreshing thirst quencher and easily drinkable. Very fruity, quite complex but not overcharged. No need for a radler anymore!

BOTTLE 33CL. Almost an ”alcohol free” beer, being at 3,8% ABV and a few days from its BB date, the aroma is very intense and clean, with sweet fruit, light citrus, honey sweetness and some grassy notes. The flavour is not too bold, but not even close to being watery. It is dry, with just a hint of honey, lots of hops, no prickly CO2 or tannins. There’s a touch of aspirin-like harshness in the bitter finish. Very nice. [backlog 20150124]

Very hoppy with a strong fruity grapefruit type aroma. Very bitter with a strong aftertaste, but the taste doesn't live up to the aroma. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pint at the Bodega, Newcastle. Heard a lot about this before trying. Hazy gold with a white head. Citrus and privet aroma. Has that lovely trick that few blonds of this strength can pull off of full on citrus with a hint of creaminess, like a good quality orange cream chocolate. Nice astringency in the finish. Scored high on a wet Tuesday evening in Newcastle in November, probably 2 points better on a Sunny Sunday afternoon in August in a beer garden overlooking a river.

Cask in the George Hotel, Inveraray. Straw coloured with a frothy white head. Bitter with plenty of citrus. Light and refreshing. Very good for the ABV.
