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.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2010
(Bottled) Pale golden, nice lacing. Very mild aroma, lightly honeyish. Flavor is quite balanced and pleasant, but not very interesting: honeyish, neutral maltiness and some yeast. Surprisingly (technically) well made for a new brewery - feels almost like Leffe Blonde, but unfortunately is also as interesting. 4435
