2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. It pours golden-amber with a small white head. The nose is grainy, dough, toasty, light spice and a touch of sweetness. The taste is crisp, bitter, lemony, soapy, toasty, peppery, metallic notes, wood and grain with a lingering dry finish. Light-medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. A bit soapy. So-so. I prefer the cask version.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ Kings Day Tasting 2014 shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear orange color, medium sized off-white head that lasts for a decent while. Aroma is very fruity, mango, peach and nicely hoppy. Taste nicely hoppy, light to moderately malty, again quite fruity with tones of mango and peach and a nice subtle bitterness. Suitable body and carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Near-clear deep golden body, off white head reduced to a layer, some lacing.
Aroma; caramel malts, mild floral hops, toffee fudges, butter, apple.
Taste; fruity mild-bitter hops in front, caramel malts, apple, butterscotch, toffee, salt, mild bread’ish grains. Finishes with malts, grains, still juicy fresh with some light-bitter hops.
Normal on palate, normal carbonation, and first of all very fresh and quaffable.
This brew somehow reminded me about "czech svetly desitkas". Quite good.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I was sort of expecting this to be dark like the bird it is named after but it turns out to be a very pale ale. Small white head with some lacing. Biscuity with a nice subtle lemon/lime under current. Little bit of saltiness on the tongue. Very gentle fizz which actually adds to the appeal on this one.

Fruits, grains and grass in the aroma. Golden with a white head. Medium sweet and medium bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Overall a good but a bit boring bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good blond beer, a little bit light but great taste, as the palate.
The aroma is not very marked, and that’s not a weakness for this beer. Blonde, usual appearance.
