On tap at the brewpub. A more or less clear one, golden in color and with a dense, white head on top. Lightly sugary nose with a solid dose of fruityness. Some spiced notes. Sweet flavor, still dry on the palate. Medium body. Nice bitterness both initially and in the end. Fruityness and a spiced touch as well. Certainly a beer I could drink a few of. 120505

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap, 100ml, 6.0% abv., from a sample tray at the restaurant called Smaken av Sundbytunet. Next to clear, yellow-gold body, thin, white lacing-head. Spiced fruity aroma. A flavour profile that brings orange fruits, spices and faint yeasty fruitiness beneath. Dry, semi-sweet fruity ending. Oily palate. Medium bodied. Satisfying (Jessheim, 08.05.2012).

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A fruity and medium-hoppy blond ale, very satisfying beer
How: Tap at brewpub
The look: Partly cloudy blond body topped by medium white head with medium retention
In long: The nose is surprisingly intense with plenty of tropical fruits and tangerines over dry grassy hops and a bed of fresh cereals. Taste is clean, a bit tangy, plenty of fruits (fresh juicy apples, pineapples, oranges, passion fruits, grapefruits, more), plenty of fresh cereals and I suspect some Saaz here because of a dry grassy finish with a spicy twist. Bitterness of medium intensity with a moderately dry finish, this is a well balanced beer. Very nice mouthfeel, clean, full, lively. To me it tasted halfway between a superior hoppy Golden/Blond Ale and a fruity light Belgian Blond ale. Don’t let the name fools you, usually when a pub names a beer simply ‘blond’ it usually means a boring entry-level blond ale, this is not the case here. This is very drinkable and very satisfying ale. Enjoyed this beer during a quiet afternoon at this brewpub when there was only the waiter, the brewer and one weirdo drinking alone at a table, and I should stop calling myself names.

On tap @Grünerløkka Mat- og Mikrobrygg Festival 2012. Cloudy gold colored body, topped by a thin foamy blond head.
