COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Editor’s note: Originally launced as bottle conditioned Kos på Groos as a festival beer for the Skral rock/pop festival in 2008. Spring 2009 it was relaunched as Blonde, tap only. For the Free Port Days in Kristiansand June 2009 it was sold bottle conditioned once more, this time with an extra addition of Cascade hops, under the name Porto Franco. Released on bottle as Blonde January 2011.

On the label of Kos på Groos: Kos På Groos nytes best avkjølt i sola mens man opplever god musikk. Den lille festivalen med det storet hjerte og Nøgne Ø går sammen for å lage sommerens store ølnyhet. Kos På Groos er et sommerlig og lyst festivaløl av anerkjent Nøgne Ø kvalitet.
Vi sees på Groos for litt kos i sommer. Vel bekomme.

On the label of Porto Franco: Øl har lange tradisjoner til sjøs. I et kosthold med mye salt var øl en vanlig tørstedrikk. Det holdt seg også bedre enn vann når reisen ble lang. En sjømanns liv var fullt av prøvelser. Urent farvann, sjørøvere, storm og stille kunne gjøre reisen lang og farlig. Kostholdet om bord kunne ogdå være en utfordring. På 1500-tallet ble øl varmet opp og tilsatt krutt når mannskapet hadde behov for en skikkelig oppstiver! På denne tiden var det vanlig at 20 mann delte en tønne øl i døgnet.Det utgjør ca 6,5 liter pr mann. Porto Franco og Nøgne Ø anbefaler et langt mer moderat inntak. Et lite glass godt øl nytes gjerne sammen med gode venner en varm sommerdag.

English:Blonde Ale is refreshing anytime, but especially after working outside om a hot summer day.Serve at 6 degrees C and pair with seafood and other light meals. Nøgne Ø ales are bottle conditioned, so pour carefully if you do not want to disturb the yeast sediments in the bottle.

PalCabral (139) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2015
Bottle from Coop, Trysil. Pretty much a poor saison. The low alcohol doesn’t help. One dimensional.

Kanskje ikke like god som Saison, men også en god og forholdsvis mild øl som funker som kosedrikke med eller uten mat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

metalspice (225) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - FEB 13, 2015
Grumsete lyst gult med høyt hvitt skum. Duft av ananas, mango og en del pilsnermalt. Fyldig og fruktig smak som sitter godt i. Drikkes sammen med en vellagret sveitserost, god kombo!

sharkydodson (496) - St. Petersburg, RUSSIA - JAN 15, 2015
malty and fruity aroma with some hints of banana, herbs and flowers... the taste is malty and fruity with shades of toffee and citrus... smooth hoppy bitterness... bitter aftertaste... good blonde ale in Belgian traditions...

asimeow (172) - Sandsli, NORWAY - NOV 8, 2014
0,5l bottle. bread, spruce, floral, dough, alcohol, soy sauce, pale, golden, cloudy, minimal head, white foam, medium sweetness, very bitter, heavily sour, salty, medium body, sticky, fizzy, bitter. Reminds me of an IPA, but the aroma is kinda unpleasant (moldy?) and the taste too salty and bitter. The hops are buried too deep.

Leighton (13373) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle at home in London - picked up from Utobeer. Pours mostly clear yellow-gold with a large, thick white foam head. The nose has notes of tangy lemon, sourdough bread, mild Belgian yeast, hay. Light to medium sweet flavor with slight spicy yeast, some lemon rind bitterness, pale doughy bread, faint plastic, dirty hay. Light bodied with average carbonation and massaging texture. Simple finish with doughy, bready pale malts, some citrus, orange juice, minimal bitterness. Basic Belgian sessioner.
