3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of grainy malts, strong herbs and citrus. Flavour of grainy malts, yeast, strong grassy hops, mild citrus and quite strong herbal notes as well. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Finishes yeasty, citrusy and herbal. Rather straightforward and one-dimensional.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Oddbins at London Bridge. Golden beer bit of a haze from the yeast that I poured in. Thick white head. Herby quite sharp hoppy aroma. Touch of sherbert. Earthy nutty flavour to go with the hoppy blond beer. Yes a kind of brazil nut quality to it. Hops are fine. Very good bitterness on the finish. Good character. Yes a very decent blond. Not much Belgianness to it though I thought. I’d happily have this again for the hoppy finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Oddbins West Hampstead. Light golden colour with a white head. I guess sits between an English summery golden ale and a Belgian, little more yeasty than the English but more English hopping. Slightly fruity to begin with, I felt a little earthiness in the hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ BrewDog, Camden. This is a straw yellow cloudy one with a big dense just off-white head. It’s light spicy and sweet on the aroma, I get some wheat and caramel tones here. Also a hint of oranges. It’s really nice carbonated, small prickling bubbles in a thin oily texture. Flavors are also light spicy, some yeast and wheat mixed with lot’s of citrus. Light and easy. Good drinking! 20.07.2012
