Mungo (2472) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2007
Draught @ Delerium, Brussels. Light caramelly biscuity malts. Herbal floral hops and thin tart finish. Not bad but tartness takes over and isnt integrated.

SilkTork (5179) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2007
330ml bottle from BeersOfEurope. A light, delicate, fragrant strong pale ale. The yeast has worked well to create a dry and lean ale redolent with subtle flowery flavours. Sweetness from the addition of sugar in the bottle gives a rounded balance and a fine effervescence. A surprisingly gentle and attractively drinkable blond.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2007
Best beer of the tasting by a long shot, and my best blond iv ever had, including woman. Aroma was super peachy, pineapple sweet malts and raisins, very very nice. Taste is similar fruityness, not so sweet as easy drinking, really peachy. An excellent beer in every way.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 9, 2007
A Sim rate (Draught at ZBF): Very faint hay aroma. Slightly sweet and honey. Generic blonde flavour with a bit of extra malt. Almost salty. No finish. Pretty straight forward but easily drinkable.
