3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 yet another damn mediocer blonde belgian ale.. i rest my case in stead of repeating myself forever. 2,8
Rerate , from lost and found personal notes .
Smell is sweet, bit grainy . Too high carbo . Honey , sweet grains . Banana-inspired fruityness . Very common and boring .
I used to rate at a different scale, for my first 100 (?) beers, now updating them slowly . Moving this to 3,5 - my score for very common, mediocer , boring beer . Not bad at all , but nothing special .

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33L bottle. Pours hazy straw with a thin, foamy white head and some lacing. Interesting and different aromas: pineapple, mineral, grass, nutmeg. Medium sweetness at beginning with some mild butterscotch, transitions to a grassy hop flavor, finish is citrusy and mild, yeasty bitterness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, a really nice blonde. Not complex, but what it does, it does well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate patchy lacing. Nose is pale biscuity malt, faint apples and Belgian yeast. Taste is mild sweet, mild bitter, faint apples and pepper spice. Light to medium smooth body, prickly sustained carbonation, with an off-dry moderate bitter finish.
A few notches better than an adjunct lager, but it’s got some of the same character. Not a lot going on in the nose, other than a crackery, biscuity kind of malt, with everything else pretty far in the background. A very workaday pale ale, with not a lot to distinguish it.

Crisp amber with nice foam. Quiet clean scent. Maybe this is what "they" drink watching "football". Straight forward Blonde.
