COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
De naam is uiteraard ontleend aan de vestigingsplaats van de brouwerij Kessel-lo. Kessel Blond is een strogeel bier van 7,5 vol.% alc., met een dikke sluier en een wandklevende witte schuimkraag. In de neus is het fris, met hop, appels en citrus. Na een neutrale smaakaanzet komt een tintelende fruitigheid, een toets van honing en een licht hoppige afdronk.

Borresteijn (4574) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2013
75cl at WWT III. Hazy golden colour, white head. Aroma of pale malts, light floral, a bit sweet. Flavour is sweet, fruity, banana, yeast, light bitter alcoholic finish. Light-bodied. Standard Belgian ale imo, Golden ales don’t use Belgian yeast afaik.

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ WWT III courtesy of Benzai. Pours a hazy pale golden beer with a big white head on top. Aroma is somehow a bit skunky, with some spicey, spruce notes to it. Flavour is quite regular, bland Belgianny. Medium sweet, medium bitter.. meh. Not impressing

jmgreenuk (4109) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle at WWT3. Poured a cloudy light straw with a frothy white head. The aroma is weak yeast and malt. The flavour is weak bitter with a little malt on the watery palate. Not much else really. Not a classic, but not the worst blond either.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Bottle @ WWT3. Hazy yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma is spicy, yeasty, fruity, some banana and a hint of wheat. Flavor is sweetish, spicy, yeasty and smooth but a bit boring.

Benzai (7324) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
Sampled from bottle @ WWT III. Hazy pale yellow color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly fruits, a bit of yeast. Pretty standard Belgian blond. Average body and carbonation.
