50 cL bottle. Pours cloudy orange with a small white head. Mild hoppy fruity and slight malty aroma. Mild milky and caramel malty initial flavoured. Mild hoppy fruity and slight bitter to fruity hops note. Vague smoke touch into the far finish. Ends mild fruity from the hops.

Une blonde fruitée et parfumée, légère mais équilibrée, belle bouche harmonieuse. Un délice de fin de concert...

MrBlueSky93 (504) - Sutton Coldfield, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Bier Huis. Pours golden with single finger white head. Aroma of hops, sweat, fruits, citrus. Taste of initial malts, bready, biscuity, then touches of fruit, light hops, tangy too. Not great.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle, 5.0%. Fruity aroma, even raisin? Clear golden colour. Good stable chalk white head. The flavour is fruity with a mild hop bitterness to balance. Low bitterness. Caramelly and not so flavourful.

SarkyNorthener (3347) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 27, 2013
Bottle. Pale copper colour, residual head. Aroma is mostly yeast, maybe a touch of malt behind it all. The taste is again yeasty and quite tangy with a dry bitter finish. Light to medium bodied. I thought this beer was OK, not as bad as some other reviewers thought.

olliejobbins (1525) - Dorking, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2013
500ml bottle. Ports a clear amber. Aroma was of slightly off fruit. Smells sweet. Taste is much the same. Was completely flat so maybe seal wasn’t quite right. Won’t bother trying again.

BlackHaddock (5194) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2012
Brown 500ml bottle (unfiltered) drank two months after its best by date (Dec 2008). Poured into a UK pint sleeve glass. Very pale, a golden lager colour, but with small yeast and sediment particals flaoting within the body. A huge white head sat on top. A heavy yeast aroma meets the nose, nothing else gets a look in. Spritzy and tangy feel, very lively and heavily carbonated. There is a hint of hops in the taste but the yeast in the aroma takes over in the taste as well. Dry and refreshing, getting dryer in the aftertaste. More body than the colour suggests, light in appearance but not in anything else.
