Danish: Jacobsen Saaz Blonde er brygget efter belgisk tradition. Den lyse overgærede øl er mellemfyldig og har en forfinet karamelsødme afbalanceret af en blød bitterhed. Duften er frugtig med tørre anelser af kvan, nelliker og koriander – afrundet af en duft af fyrrenåle. Farven er lys gylden med et flot blondt skum.

English: Saaz Blonde is brewed according to the Belgian tradition but with Czech Saaz hops. It has a light colour with a blonde head. The flavour is fruity, contrasted by the dryness of angelica, clove and coriander. The aroma is rounded by a pine needle character from the Saaz hops. The finish has a moderate bitterness. Enjoy at 5-7 degrees Celsius.

floydian1 (1002) - FNQ, Australia, - OCT 19, 2014
500ml bottle purchased from Copenhagen Airport duty free shop. Clear dark golden appearance with average white head. Aroma has grainy honey malts, with a touch of yeasty banana esters and earthy Saaz hops. Taste is medium sweet with a mild hop bitterness and a surprisingly light bodied and watery palate for the ABV. Nothing really to write home about.

330 ml bottle @ Bodils Kro, Skagen. Clear, golden body with a big, creamy off-white head. Mild aroma of pale malt and spices with floral notes. Smooth and easy flavor, light malty sweetness, some spices and low bitterness. Medium body and a bit short in aftertaste. Nice and easy.

Hanoi (419) - Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle from Tesco. It’s Carlsbergh *braces self*. Nose is strawberry, Belgian yeast, leading to acrid metallic notes. Taste is strawberry, honey, mango touch of a stale note in the dry finish. Lots of clove, lots of corriander. The finish after a few moments is terrible, watery, stale, and tastes faintly of carrot in a deeply odd way. This is a baffling beer, why have Carlsberg made it? It has a ludicrous one note Belgian taste leading to stale clunking international larger tastes. Did anyone really want to know what a Belgian blonde mixed with larger would be.

Aromas of citrus and light yeast. The taste is of citrus and alcohol. Good bitterness which fills the front of the mouth a weak moment. YUK! Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
