COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

maeib (8718) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2004
Draught - Bierodrome, Holborn, London. A golden blonde coloured beer with a sweet flowery aroma and an over-perfumed cough medicine taste. Not really very nice.

DanielBrown (3814) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
On tap at Bierodrome (Holborn, London), with Joeh, Kook, Duff, and Maeib. Sweet, ruddy, lagery blond. Sweet, with a metal tang. Not quite fresh enough for me - and the strength doesn’t warm. Average.

kook (2033) - Perth, Western Australia, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2004
Light clean malty aroma with slight yeastiness to it. Gold in colour with a white head. Sweet start, with citrus and yeasty mid/finish. Spicy. Medium bodied, Good.

Rastacouere (6129) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 30, 2004
Beautiful shining hazy golden hue. Generous white head covers the pour, but while there’s a fair bit of lacing, bubbles are pretty irregular. Superb citrusy (orange, lemon) hallertau? nose works like a wonder with the pilsner malt. Crisp delightful pilsner malt. Yummy, honey cookies! Absolutely inviting and gorgeous. Very floral and perfumey palate, spicy hops appear rather subdued, but still contribute to adding depth. Very soft mouthfeel, velvety, silky, crisp and comfortable effervesence. Complex baked pie/bread yeastiness rides along the pilsner malt and seemingly merge with it in an emotion-filled finish that you’d wish lasted longer... Awe-inspiring execution.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2004
(750 ml bottle) Hazy golden appearance. Rich fluffy white head. Refreshing aroma of candied oranges, spices and hops. Clean orangey flavour with hints of wheat, coriander and other spices. Long hoppy, spicey and orangey finish. Dangerously drinkable. Very good.

JonMoore (1859) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 24, 2004
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Golden colour with large bubbly white head. Aroma is interesting; malt and hops and floral and a sort of nice medicinal pineyness. Taste is spicey, dry, bitter, sweet, malty, hoppy, sourish at the end, with a lovely mouthfeel. Full bodied, crisp and refreshing with well hidden alcohol. Very impresive blonde.

haukur (1305) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 9, 2004
a very nice blonde. Somewhat pilsner feel, quite yeasty with floral earthy tones with some bitterness. Aroma was bitter oranges and apples with an outhouse feel to it. Very very drinkable but lacks a bit of complexity and is quite straight forward
Earlier Rating: 7/7/2004 Total Score: 3.3
an avarage blonde. Easy drinking, yeasty, surprisingly hoppy and acid. Floral, yeasy aroma, nice big head but fainted quickly ... nice little beer but nothing mind blowing
