AndersR (195) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2002
small white head, transparant golden color, very fresh and a bit sweet taste with hints of fruit. Slightly bitter finish. A very well balanced Blonde, one of the best Blonde i tasted.

Fruity, appley, winey aroma. Flavor has much of the same with a nice dryness towards the end, and apparent alcohol strength in the finish.

Nuffield (3636) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2002
The first taste was rather shocking. Appearance gives you no reason to suspect anything other than a straight-up lager (of course, most will know better when ordering this). Even the aroma didn’t promise it either. The flavor is distinctive. I wanted to say plastic or cardboard or something vaguely industrial at first, but later on it came out as spiciness, peppery flavor. Slight sweetness with simultaneous dryness? (on tap, Belgo, Kingsway, London)

DrBeer (829) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 17, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2005 Pale golden brown. Firm thin head. Buttery aroma with notes of spices, bread and fruit. Sweet flavor with notes of graphite, spices and alcohol. Low bitterness. Astringent finish.

Nice clean color. Fruity and yeasty. A bit of bite in the mouth. Not spectacular.
