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.

A slightly hazy, golden pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is lightly spicy with notes of clove, banana, and white grape. It has a light with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is sweet, but finishes more bitter and slightly dry.

Fresh acidity but not too much. A bit watery and anonymous too though. Best served cold. Summer beer.

200ml on-tap at Carlsberg Brewery/Visitor Centre, Copenhagen:
Decent, obviously Carlsberg keep all the good stuff in Denmark & export their crap beer to the UK, that being said it wasn’t a particularly memorable beer really. I got some nice freshness & pleasant fruits to kick things off, mainly oranges, citrus & bananas which also added some sweetness. Towards the middle there was a few earthy malts & biscuit flavours that started to come through but on the whole it wasn’t anything special & it’s probably not one I’d seek out again.

Dit blonde bier is gebrouwen naar het Belgische type blond maar geeft een zachtere maar toch bittere smaak af. Het weinige schuim verdwijnt trouwens snel.

Denne Jacobsen Saaz Blonde har et klart gyldent udseende med et medium hvidt skum. Øllen har en frugtig aroma og smager meget frugtigt med en svag bitter afrunding. Medium karbonering.

Bottles from Tesco, Gateshead and Sainsbury’s. Pale golden in colour with a very thin white head. It has a strong spicy fruity flavour, followed by herbal notes and zest on the warming finish. Ok, but far too much ABV for the flavour.

Warm and clear golden with a short, white head. Aroma of resin, citrus and herbs. Very pleasant but slightly indefinable taste. Lightly bitter, medium sweetness, very fruity. Good palate. Gimme more!!
