BlackHaddock (5387) - Shropshire, - NOV 17, 2012
33cl Bottle poured into the correct (lovely) glass on a sun terrace of a bar in Valkenburg, Holland, 23 Oct 2012. The bottle had a BBD of Oct 2013. As the name might suggest to you, the beer is golden blonde in colour, on top sat a full white crown of bubbles. Itís glass helps to make it look special in my eyes. The nose is a bit sweeter and grainer than I like: seemed wheaty and sugary even before the first sip and I wasnít looking forward to trying it. Luckily it wasnít as sickly and weak as the aroma first indicated: still had a sweet front, but it calmed down mid-sip and got even a little hop bitter and dry towards the end of each mouth full. Canít say it was great, but it was OK I suppose: not very well balanced, almost dis-jointed in that the flavours didnít blend or mix. Iíll not be having another by choice.

Pyobon (1220) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2016
(Bottle) Pours clear golden with thin white head. Not a very appealing aroma - a little metallic, a little spicy, a little barnyard. Medium bodied with smooth carbonation. Taste is unusual, and pleasant with a balance between a rather honey-like sweetness and some peppery spice. There some banana and toffee in the mid-palate, and some metallic notes in the start. Thereís a lot to like, and a few things to dislike.

Hopverdju (206) - BELGIUM - JAN 10, 2016
Helder blond bier met rijkelijke witte schuimkraag. Geur: lichjes hoppig. Smaak: zacht zoetig, fruitig. Sprankelende koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: zoetig, met een klein bittertje. Dit bier doet denken aan een sterkere zoetige versie van pils.

Marko (4540) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 18, 2015
Somehow Iíve missed this so far. At Craft Room, Zagreb. Golden body with a lasting small white head. Sweet malty aroma, full, light pear notes, somewhat spicy. Taste... hmmm.... Interesting malty/fruity notes, minty in a way, notes of apples. Quite nice and drinkable, the latter of which cannot be said for some of the beers in the same range. All in all, good job!

rami_pl (1064) - Warszawa, POLAND - DEC 4, 2015
butelka, warka do 02-2017. Przejrzyste, jasne bardzo, z ladna, biala, piana. W aromatach jest przyprawowosc, jasne owoce (brzoskwinie), chmiele trawiasto-ziolowe. na to wszystko nalozony typowy aromat slodu jak w pilsach, zbozowy. slodkie. wysoko wysycone. z wyrazna (dosc dlugo zostajaca) goryczka. Nic specjalnego, ale pite z przyjemnoscia.

ostatnie lyki po ogrzaniu - wychodzi kolendra! :(
