rlgk (17973) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2008
Bottle at Pub Heaven, Nice, France. Pale golden, small white head. An ordinary lager, some malt, some hops. Refreshing a hot day but not that much more...

imdownthepub (13033) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2009
Bottled, 650ml Swing Top. Gold with white head. Sweet, clean and refreshing beer with a lightness that belies its strength, there are some vegetal notes within the body of the beer but they seem to add to its character. I really quite enjoyed it.

Maria (10214) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 4, 2008
Thanks Michael for bringing this back from France. It is golden with a small, white head. The aroma has notes of malt, vegetables/fruit. The flavour has sweetness and notes of malt, vegetables and in the finish I find some rancid grapefruit, that is unpleasant. The overall impression is thin.

leaparsons (9773) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2005
Bottle. Golden with a white fluffy head. Aromas are sweet grain and caramel and nothing else. Flavours are sweet grain and caramel - nothing much going on here. A bit crappy but still drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2005
65 cl flip-top bottle. Pale golden with a thin white head. Light yeasty and malty aroma. A bit honeyish. Light malty flavour, caramel, honey and a fairly spicy hop flavour. Pretty simple, but quite refreshing.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JAN 2, 2006
Bottled. A pale lager with a large creamy head on pouring. The aroma is sweet and a little perfumed. A lot of buttery malts present. The taste is really sweet, practically to the point of nastiness. Again quite buttery, but that sweetness just gets in the way. Glad I shared the 650 bottle with the wife as would never have managed it on my own.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2008
750ml bottle. Golden, fizzing, lacy. Smells waxy and grainy like a ’Polish Strong’. It’s all vaguely smoky, buttery whiskeyish malt and no hops. Faint apple and alcohol. Unpleasantly bitter. One-dimensional and dull.

BlackHaddock (6211) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2012
65cl flip-top bottle: My bottle was best before Jan 2008 and drank in May 2007. Part of a mixed four pack, this is the first to be reviewed. Poured into a Hoegaarden Grand Cru tulip glass which holds 33cl (so used it twice). Large pop, as I opened the bottle, lots of pressure in there then, it frightened the dog, he doesn’t like champagne being opened either. Clear golden amber, not a light straw colour blonde, this one has highlights. A good solid white head sat on top, the beer looked impressive. A slight citrus aroma, not much else for my nose, although I rarely smell much when sniffing lagers and blondes. The taste was OK, no great flavours hit you, but for a blonde-lager it is well above average for the mouthfeel and drinkability. The 6.4% alcohol gives it a little kick, all in all, not a bad beer.
