This is a full-tasting, but deceptively drinkable, classic golden ale, with a clean, precise flavour and full hop character. Hops used: Goldings, Saaz.

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Cafe Rose Red, Bruges, West Flanders, Belgium. Hazy gold with white pillowed head. There is a heavy Belgian yeasty note to this right from the start, pear drops, banana essence, it’s like a combo of wit and blonde. Herbal notes later with a candied sweetness. All in all okay if a little too eager.

Lowenbrau (3211) - Asturias, Oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 23, 2015
33cl bottle, somewhere in time.
In short: classic golden ale.
A fruity, moderate hoppy golden ale, some dry. Enjoyable, but not amazing.

Beer looks imperial, very sturdy in body as well. Taste is like a Heineken and a wit mixed... Smell is yeasty and wheaty. Overall, it is a good summer taste.

Bif (2049) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 27, 2012
Bottle- Pours a hazy golden color with a nice head that fades to good lacing. Aroma is fruity with some malt sweetness and spice in the back ground. Taste of fruit, malt sweetness and some spice. Nice bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. Has a nice balance that gives it a bit of character. This was a enjoyable beer, much more than I expected from a Blonde Ale, but then again it was from Belgium.

Koelschtrinker (17308) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 13, 2011
Süß-kräuterartiger Antrunk, etwas wässrig. Eine unpassende Note ist dabei ebenfalls präsent, etwas faulig wirkend. Dieses Aroma setzt sich im Mittelteil fort, gewürzig, Wit-artig. Sehr prickelnd, die Aromen sind oftmals oberflächlich. Der faulig-säuerliche Ton wird im Abgang stärker. Test vom 27.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,8,7,6,3,6 - 6,70

Martinus (4498) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2011
Pale hazy golden colour, firm white head. Malty aroma, yeast, citrus and hops. Flavour is sweet malts, some mild lemon, hops and spice. Decent beer, quite refreshing. (from tap)

Thanks Steve B. for bringing to 1000 Islands ’10’. Poured a Large that that stayed a bit. Good lacing. The citurs and spices in the aroma and flavor was fine. The too hoppiness was not fine. Too hoppy for a Blond.
