2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A- Pours a dark orange. Kind of dark for a blond. White head that leaves little to no lacing.
S - Buttery sugar malt with slight diacetyl. Grassy hops, fruity undertone.
T - Slightly sweet malt with hints of bright fruit. Bits of hops show but are not distinct. Thin flavors mix with flower and a shallow malt. Good mouthfeel. Good for the style.
This is pretty good for a blonde. Highly drinkable for most.
Serving type: on-tap

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355mL Bottle from drankgigant.nl. Clear amber colour, off-white head. Aroma of a typical English ale, fruity, melon, caramel, hint of toast. Flavour is sweet at the onset, caramel/toffee, malts, fruity, mid is more bitter, nutty, toast, light floral, light hoppy bitter finish. Light bodied. OK stuff. More a Bitter than Golden Ale to me, very English in character.

Not bad for what it is. Some caramel. It's just not my style, but if someone offers one, I'll feel free to take it.
