COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not your typical blonde which is finally balanced in hops and natural sugars that combine to add a fruity aftertaste.

Cask conditioned handpump Princess Of Wales London 30/10/12. No, not your typical blonde. Not even blonde in colour. Sweet and fruity nose. Sugars and hops. Thin and sweetish in the mouth. Reasonable but not a blonde ale.

Beese (1099) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
Cask at The Watford Beer Festival 2013. Poured a murky golden colour with a halo of white head. Aroma of yeast, cooked fruit and some straw. Flavours were lacking and what there was seemed rather wort-like. Slight funk and wet grass in there. Not in good condition.

jamesie1857 (1225) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2013
On cask @ Uxbridge Arms, Chasetown - Straw coloured body with white head. A bit doughy on the nose, yeast and malt in there with a fragrant floral hop in the back. Somewhat thinnish on the palate, and a bit dull. Nothing special, but a good one to break up the dark beers.

JorgeLee (1067) - Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2012
Cask in the Clarence, W1. Darkish, more golden than truly blonde. This was to be a fairly unremarkable golden ale, nothing wrong with it but nothing amazing either. Basically I like pale golden ales to be either bitingly dry and austere or to have a fresh juicy citrus hop character. This was kind of middle of the road, a bit sweet and slightly fruity.

Cask by handpump at Drum & Monkey, Glasgow - clear deep golden, thin off-white head, fruity nose, cereal, wheat flavour, prolonged malty aftertaste

imdownthepub (9623) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Bell, Banbury. Straw with white head. Malty beer with a good bready, baked malt note mixed with a grainy edge. There is a light, slightly perfumed hop in the background. Somewhat thinnish on the palate, but an easy session type beer and sold out pretty quickly.

Theydon_Bois (6986) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
Cask at the Sussex Arms, Twickenham Green - 07/09/12. Clear blonde with a thin white head that soon dissipates to a swirl which then moves to the edge of the glass. Pale malt nose, orchard fruit and muted hops on the nose. Medium sweet taste, apple, light caramel. Medium nodied with moderate carbonation levels leading to a slightly bitter and dry finish. File under ’W’ for whelmed!

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2012
On cask at The York Tap. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of lemon, pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter and quite dry to finish.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2012
Watery, slightly fruity beer. Nothing special, very little head on it. Was alright after a few pints I suppose.

worldbeertaste (1546) - AUSTRIA - APR 4, 2012
Medium gold with a frothy white head. Slight Sulphur comes to mind with corn and wheat. Medium slightly frothy sticky body. Taste of Malt, hops, bread and wheat. Frothy golden ale with pleasant rich malt elements Dry finish. Average but a good session
