Golden pour with thick foamy head. Complex aromas with citrus, dried fruit and crackers. Good balance, light maltiness, hints of sourdough. Not a fan of the finish. Oily and alcoholic.

Bottle at the Craven Arms, shared with Gurd and Roberto. Photos on my fone reminded me to rate this. Lagery style beer, with some tartness and very mild funk. Robust, slight pepper. Quite good I thought. Certainly better than Leffe, who’s glass I supped this from.

On tap. Labeled "3 Monts: Classic Golden Ale", ABV labeled 8.8%. Perfectly clear golden color. Thin white head. Nice loose splotches of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, lightly soft lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Earthy, hoppy flavor. Some wood, light spice, grains. Nice moderate bitter taste, light spiciness, light sweet. Tasty biere de garde.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma has sweet fruits, honey, floral notes, grass and yeast. The flavor is less sweet with more dry mild bitterness than the nose indicated. Decent drinker, but the nose was not my favorite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle. Filtered gold, big head with large bubble, looks like a very good lager. Aroma has like of a floral sweetness. Taste is very light, especially for the ABV, floral, citrus, some noble hops. Rather fizzy. Overall, it is kind of a super lager.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle from some grocery store in Nice, France. Pours a crystal clear, golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy and lightly sweetened pale malts with a light bready note, a light grass, and a few floral hints. Flavor is better. Lightly sweetened, grainy pale malts with touches of honey-bread, some florals, a light grass throughout, and a few fruit notes. Finishes clean and dry with a light bitterness before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste with just a slight alcohol warmth. Medium, smooth body and a lively, moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Not overly complex, but clean, balanced, and enjoyable enough.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flowery nose with a bit of fruit. Clear and apple coloured. Quite dry with the tiniest hint of caramel. Tastes refreshing, which means you’ll be tempted to drink faster than is wise, I’d bet.
