COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Also available bottled.
Notting Hill Blonde is a continental style yellow beer which flavour explodes on the tongue, a mix of hops, bitterness and sweetness. Fruity hops on the nose and palate fade in the aftertaste, leaving a dry bitter character with a little spiciness.

Theydon_Bois (7000) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from Oddbins NHG, at home, 05/02/14. Lightly hazed pale golden blonde with a moderate white crown of bubbledom that stays for the show. Nose is green apples, straw, light citrus, toasty malt ring. Taste is a little thin, orchard fruit, straw, faint tangerine, light bread dough. Medium bodied but a little watery, fine carbonation, grassy close with very subtle bitterness. Not unpleasant just a little boring and lacking in flavour.

When you see a blonde in noting hill it's usually a Russian or Eastern European. People of decent attractiveness are usually from somewhere outside the UK ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

maneliquor (2786) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 7, 2013
Bottle at beer and cheese tasting in Shoreditch. Yellow pour with a small white head and some chunky bits. Nose is very bready an slightly grainy. Light citrus, lemon focused with doughy bread in the taste. Solid for a blonde I suppose

Leighton (9847) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - picked up from Oddbins London Bridge. Pours clear yellow, lightly effervescent with a moderate, creamy white head and a bit of sediment. Sugary, doughy white bread in the nose, faint hay. Medium sweet flavor, lots of sugary white bread, dough, mild bitter straw, hints of minerally yeast. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet finish with very mellow dryness, low bitterness, more doughy pale malts, some white bread, very light lemon peel. Pretty tasty stuff, if a bit simple.

hazy gold beer, tidy white head. Smooth palate with a little fine carbonation. The pale malt is a bit raw - grainy. A little apple here. Mild citrus and a semi dry finish. Too grainy and a bit green.

Desverger (1287) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 26, 2013
