Bottled. A golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of malt and grain. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and straw as well as hints of honey, leading to a dry finish with hints of wheat.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330ml bottle. Pale yellow colour with a thin white head. Looks like it lacks substance and is not as good as other brews from St Arnou.Aromas of lemon rind and wet hay. Lively enough in the mouth with a light, refreshing sweet flavour.

1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle (330ml). Poured pale orange with an averaged sized, rocky, white head which as mostly diminishing. Aroma was sweet of sweet malts with candy sugar, mandarin, cooked corn, butterscotch and a hint of mandarin. Flavor was of sweet malts with no bitterness, strong notes of boiled carrots, potato and strange notes of tomato soup in the finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation, a watery texture and a short finish. Very strange beer and not in a good way, could not finish my glass. May have been a bad bottle but I doubt it. St Arnou Minestrone anyone?

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tried this beer this beer on the advise of a fellow beer lover. I’m not exactly suer if this is the St. Arnou that he was referring to (Premium Blonde), but damn is it a quality drop. A great fruity taste, without being too overpowering, like some other fruit infused beers (Miller Chill comes to mind), but a very refreshing and palatable drop. Very good summer beer I’d imagine. Worked my way through quite a large amount in a rather short timeframe, and really didn’t feel too many ill effects the following morning. A great beer all round!!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 07/09/2008 at Brisbane International Airport. Little schooner. Pale yellow gold with a thin white head. A little sulphur on the nose at first but this just adds another factor rather than detracting too much. A quenching light malt character with a delicious smack of tropical fruit in the end and a little bubblegum on the palate. Unassuming pleasant drinker.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Usual "Australian Blonde" style beer which is a unique beer compared to the Belgium style Blonde. Sweet fruity aroma, pale straw body with fizzy thin white head. Flavour is mainly sweet malts and some corn which moves to slight bitterness and has a bitter sweet finish. About as good as one could hope from this style of beer.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Frothy head on a straw pour with good carbonation,aroma malty and hoppy more like a lager so far.Flavour hops and malt,hops have a good bitter to them,only a hint of a fruit taste with a watery finish,not a blonde,so why not just call it a lager.
