Less blond than orangey-copper; has a big, firm, brandyish aroma and body, with some peaches in cream notes.

bhensonb (12959) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 5, 2008
75 cL bottle, BB 4/25/07 (oops). Bready, lightly spicy aroma. Hazy orange tinged golden color with small bits and small bubbles. My pour was nothing like the picture, but being 8 months overdate may account for it. The white head was enthusiastic, but left rapidly. Medium bodied with creamy, slightly fizzy, carbonation. There’s biscuit, some heat down the sides of the throat, something of lush ripe stone fruit in a dry way, light spice, very smooth in the mouth. The finish is more dry than not, with something like citrus lurking around the edges. I could drink this indefinitely.

argo0 (12501) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2004
(75cl, best by May 2004) Small off-white head atop a golden body hazed by yeast particulate. Aroma is herbal, honey, pear, some peat, light vinous. Taste is almost invisible, light malt, perfume, finishing with some peat. Watery light-medium body.

imdownthepub (11947) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 3, 2012
Bottled, 330ml from Carrfour, Coquelles, France. Gold with white head. Good depth for a blonde beer, there is a spicy maltiness initially, with hints of yeast and grain. From there develops a lemony, fruity, light hop note, fresh. Easily drinkable and quite pleasant.

thewolf (11646) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 26, 2008
Bottle, bought @ Aakjærs, Esbjerg.
Pours clear golden with a big, frothy, white head. Aroma is malty, sweet with some notes of fruity oranges and brewing cereal. Fine, creamy mouthfeel. Sadly the flavour is marred by a clear vegetable note that overwhelms the notes of yeast and light caramel. Very sweet and not really my thing.

Lubiere (11586) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2006
LCBO Spring release. BB May 2006. Hazy golden ale with no head. Rather chalky cardboard box aroma of oxidation, butfreshly sliced pears also noted. In mouth, a sweet honey malt, with light coriander, clovers herbal qualities, and warming alcohol. Medium bodied. The aroma took a beating but in mouth, still enjoyable.
