a sim rate:
(bottle @ Quinns) I remember this one being a lot better than this. Bit watery and not much in the flavour. Tangy in flavour and very citrus finish. Sherbet and spicy aroma and finish.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(bottle) Cloudy orange colour with giant yeast floaties swimming around and a big but collapsing foamy white head. Fruity (mandarin) yeasty and malty aroma. Slight sweet malty taste with a fruity note, decent and thin dry and light bitter finish. Nice looking and initial tasty brew with an unconvincing finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy golden-orange color with a small, tight and lasting head. Sweetish aroma of caramel, flowery hops, yeast, plus some vegetables and honey. Fruity, lightly spicy, lemony and yeasty, moderately sweet but not nearly cloying flavor. Light to medium-bodied, foamy-carbonated palate. A pleasant, quite balanced, straightforward blond. Not as thin as the bruin, although the body is not very full.

(Bottle 33 cl) Rather unusual "Blond" as the extreme yeast makes this more grey than anything else - nice, rocky head. A bit flat too. Soft, yet spicy but still fresh and pleasant. 300398
