On tap at the Nags. Good choice to fill the jugs. Nice yellow colour which refreshes before it hits the lips. Creamy mouthfeel and a hint of wheat beer banana-ness about it.

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

On tap at, sigh, Town Hall hotel. Very clear almost fluorescent yellow. Slight citrus lemon aromas. I’m going to have to give it more marks just for breaking the monotimy of the local carlton/tooheys pale lager stranglehold.

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.

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.
