How refreshment. Lovely colour, with a clean buttery flavour. So nice to see this beer pop up in pubs around sydney. Dont expect too much in the way of complicated lingering flavours, but for what it is top marks. St perters brewery has set a real precedent here, i hope other micro breweries start opening up in Sydney there is a real mafket for them, as it is an untapped commodity.

very pale, very flavourless, soapily sweet, over-clean. lychees and overripe white grapes. st peters beer should be scungier, like dubs’s monstre chocolate stout. what’s a ’bice smooth flavour’ like it says in the comm. descr. anyway? bison flavour?

Nice to see a truly local beer on tap in the Newtown area. Had this at the Golden Barley and the Carlisle. Its got a very weak wheat thing going without much else (there is a slight buttery after taste and eczematic suggested lychees). Very lightly hopped which makes it easy to put down, and god knows when Im in the mood I can sink a whole keg. In conclusion, Blonde is an all-night-long Newtown beer for the summer months, chillin with good friends or just drowning sorrows after gettin dumped. I saw the factory by the way (just a coupla streets away from me ouse) which was a real dump, and spied heaps of bags of white sugar out front... Oh well. Anyway, I like that this guy is such a purist I guess. As far as I can tell there is only three pubs in the world where this is sold, and it aint bottled: good to see a local brewer giving us some alternatives in the neighbourhood. Peace.

Beats Tooheys, VB etc hands down, still quite bland, less fizzy, minimal bitterness, slight sweetness at the start, OK, nothing special, bit boring,

Pale lager, mild flavoured, reasonably balanced. Nothing that special but is a good session beer off the keg.

(Draught) Excellent easy drinking beer. Probably my favourite Australian lager (that I can think of at the moment).

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2005 Pale straw colour, full bodied, soft and fruity, a little fresh banana flavour, refreshing. I thought this was a wheat based ale, certainly has an ale like palate.

a bit of a rarity to taste a new beer on tap in sydney. had it at the carlisle castle in camperdown. quite refreshing and seemed quite pure. perhaps it was served a little too caold for me to taste much. but slightly sweet amd soft and pleasant
