imdownthepub (10210) - 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.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2007
33 cl. bottle. The head is nice on this warm golden beer. The aroma is malty and the flavour develops in steps: malt, fermented apple, citrus and honey - and then it’s like the notes go backwards after a light bitterness, ending where it started with the malt.

Lubiere (9999) - 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.

Sammy (8627) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Abundant lasting yeasty foam on top of yellow golden. Some floral and yeast and alcohol smell. Taste is so-so

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2005
Hazy amber colour, thick white, persistent head. Very perfumey aroma, oak, lactic sourness and a bit of barnyard funkiness. Slight citric aroma as well. Flavour is fairly sweet, perfumy, cherry, black pepper, and bit of sherry-oxidized wine character in here. Full-bodied, yet refreshing. Light spice and a touch of juniper in here as well. Complex and very tasty.

leaparsons (8068) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAR 8, 2004
Cloudy orange/gold in colour. Aromas are sweet caramel malts and spices. Flavours have the same characteristics as the aroma with more spices and alcohol burn. Decent.

Quack-Duck (7911) - Down South, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2012
0.25l bottle from saveur-biere.com. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Dusty hops in the nose. Sweet, dusty hops with hints of wet cardboard. Not brilliant.

JorisPPattyn (7907) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2003
Gold-amber colour, clear. yellowish head, slowly disappearing but lacy. Alcohol nose, dry, candi-sugar, nearly syrupy - and also something like dried moss. taste is very dry-sweet (candi-sugar again), slightly citrus-rind. Lots of alcohol, alcohol-burn, sugar becomes cloying. More of the same in the aftertaste. Unimpressive.

DocLock (7854) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 27, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy gold pour with aroma of hopcitrus, fruit, and some candi sugary malt. Tastes hopcitric, fruity, with some barnyardy yeast hints plus some pear and green apple in the finish. Stays pretty carbonated througout.
