2.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy golden color with an extremely large, dense white head. Lacing is amazingly strong and the head has some serious staying power. Aromas of citrus, floral, ginger, and cereal feel your nose. Palate is surprisingly flat with little carbonation, a soft texture, and actually a pretty quick finish. Tastes honestly like Coors Light. I must say, this is probably the best aroma beer that has the worst taste. Disappointment considering how good the 8 and 10 are consistently.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden color with a thick foamy head. Judging only on its looks, it might just be that somebody sneakily added some soap to it, what a bubbles! Aroma is a bit yeasty and hoppy and has hints of alcohol in it. Flavor is a bit watery, but not too much. There is also citrus, hops and some spices. It’s slightly bitter and a bit of alcohol is present, even at 6%. It’s not bad, but I’m not overly impressed.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 33cl. Pours golden with a decent and endurable white head, that hangs around. With decent lacing too. Good honeyed, citrusy aroma, with hoppy notes. Pleasant on the tongue, with a typical but not unpleasant sharpness. A verry worthy blond.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a murky dark orange with a small ivory head. Aroma is of apples and pilsener malt, dust. Again with the pilsener malt, slightly hoppy, and green apples reappear. Medium mouthfeel and viscosity, spritzy on the tongue. Overall, good.
