obisbeer (565) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2005
Rich gold color wwith quickly disappearing head. Mettalic nose with sweet malt and some citrus. Med weight with an overall dry nature. Strong honey and citurs without much more, kinda a boring, but quaffable.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 7, 2005
Another basic undistinguished blonde of little character. Oxidized and acidic with a bit of grassy hop and little else.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 5, 2005
Tasted 05/03/2005. 330ml bottle from Regional Wines and Spirits. Lovely honey gold bright appearance in the glass with a pillowy pure white head that collapses into a thin cover. Beautiful thick lacing. Nose is slightly skunky saaz at first but disappears as the alcohol comes through. A pretty good bittersweet balance is delivered in the medium mouthfeel with a peppery hop bitterness just taking over the initial sweetness as you swallow. Palate is left with a warm alcohol feel.

dornoy (701) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2005
Large white head on a clear golden body. Has traces of spices and fruits, but is a bit bitter, especially on the finish.

I’m not crazy about this Belgian Ale. Malty, sweet, and cardboard flavors. Finishes crisp and bland.

DocLock (7824) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2005
Thanks to beer handy for this one. Pours deep golden with a big, vivid-white head and tons of lace. Aroma of hopcit, malt, candi sugar, apricots. Tastes malty, with big hopcit, honeydew, candi sugar. Very smooth and fruity on the palate, with more hopcit at the finish. A very nice beer.

jzzbassman (1511) - New Albany, Mississippi, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Poured blonde with a white head that left quickly, leaving a nice lace. The aroma was spicy, dominated by yeast. Flavor was sweet, with alcohol and watermelon, and a little cloying on the palate.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JAN 2, 2005
Clear pear yellow color with lots of carbonation bubbles at the start eventually fading to soft supple bubbling, starts with a firm finger high cap of white sturdy foam that drifts off leaving a thin skim and a fluffy collaring. Lacing coats the glass nicely in thinner curtains. Aroma of dulled citrus and white grapes and a soft plastic phenol touch underneath. Flavors are kinda mild, touches of fruityness hint to a spartic citrus notion along with a white wine aspect with a fluffy insueing yeasty softness that carries some spice of clove and white pepper. Small traces of alcohol and phenols slip by quickly as it trys very hard to stay kinda fruity and dry. Which it kinda does but withstands no real finishing qualities, it just sort of disappears on ya. Feel is weakened and thinnish, borderline watery with only a small nudge of dryness, fruityness, and carbonation which gathers a bit of strength as it gets past mid way and developes more but decreases again in the finish. This is an appoachable brew but lacks a bit of ompff and character.
