Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Bottle, from The Old School, in the confines of J98 LLY split with ’team backseat’ aka Leighton and Bruce - they were still awake as we motored on towards the French border! Clear pale golden with a thin white head that retains well. Nose carries pale malts, light grass, wheat, yeast. Taste comrises light sugars, grass, bready dough, orange peel, yeast. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, dry in the finish. A simple and drinkable offering from Struise, eminently drinkable but a bit of a come down from all the 10% goodies we’d just had at the Old School!

Postupně sem budu doplňopvat piva, co jsem vypil a zapsal si, chvilku to asi bude trvat a proto k těm dříve vypitým pivům nebudou žádné "dojmy"

Pinball (10686) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2012
bottle from beer planet. very strong gusher, spilled quite a lot of beer in the sink (yep-opened it in the sink to begin with lol). cloudy yellow, smooth white head. quite dry, quite yeasty aroma, dusty, faint flowery and fruity notes too. Nice bitter-malty flavor, with some sweet notes, but also a yeasy spicy dryness to it. Perhaps a little bit too sweet. not at all like your ordinary blonde, much more yeast and caramelly malts in the flavor.

thepeter (278) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2012
GUSHER! but poured a hazy and pretty blond with a fairly thin head that stuck around. Smelled rustic, some bitter, grassy, citrus and spice notes. Dry and well hopped for a "blond" but I like it. When it comes to the mouth-feel and Drinkability this beer took off for me. So smooth and easy, would be great on a nice sunny day.

Idiosynkrasie (3587) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 22, 2012
330ml bottle. Cloudy deep golden colour with good firm lacing white head. Sweet fruity aroma, a touch of strawberry, hay. Grainy taste with an undefinable fresh sourish note, husky remnants due to unfiltration.
