2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pretty mediocre. Clear dark yellow-gold. Tastes like a very light and thin wheat beer. Thin head. Fizzy. Not memorable.

Slightly floral hop note atop a decent blonde ale (whatever that’s worth). Not bad, but one note - and a one timer for me.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Hop Valley Double D Blonde) Can 355 ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 5%
Golden yellow colour on the body with lots of activity in it. Thinnest of heads, with low retention too.
Very faint aroma, after some sniffing I managed to get some citrus and maybe some tangerine but it’s not the strongest smelling beer out there, that’s for sure.
Taste is a bit better or at least more intense. Malts, wheat, light citrus, light floral notes, lemon zest.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Much less than I expected.

12oz can, Geers. Floury, almost doughy nose, some lemongrass and citroenjenever. Immediate refreshing Cascade in taste, Anchor Liberty style, mild and pleasant near-wheat ale flavours else: lemongrass broth, some tangerine. Unpresuming unlike its name would suggest (grabbed this too quick confounding it for a DIPA).
