can. pours hazy pale yellow with small white head showing poor retention and shy lacing. hay, spicy breadiness, sweetish cereals, lo-fi citrus and floral notes, some wort - white grape juice, hint of sweetness, average to light carbonation, light body - never watery, relatively dry and almost balanced floral-lightly woodsy-spicy-citrusy finish. ok.

Easily one of the best blondes I’ve had. The malt profile on this one is incredible. Highly recommended.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
(bottle, 35.5cl) Clear, pale golden colour with a blond and short foamy head. Slightly bready and delicately grainy malty aroma with fruity (apricot, citrus) and flowery hops. Sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Grainy and slightly sugary malt upfront with mildly flowery and delicately fruity hops; sweet malt-accented and shy hoppy finish. Too sweet for my liking. 29.VIII.14
