2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at The Roebuck, Leek (Titanic) Pours a clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of cereal, grain, some honey and slight grassy hops. Taste is similar of cereal, grain, some honey, corn and subtle grassy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A surprisingly smooth, cereal finish. A very bland, malty beer. Definitely not an ale, more like a flat malty lager. Smooth but disappointing.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
355 ml can.
Pours clear pale golden color with a small head. Sweet starch-y aroma leaves no doubt, this is going to be unpleasant, some very faint fruity notes with grass and corn, glue-ish alcohol notes. Flavor is also very sweet, hideously so, starch, toffee notes, hay and sugar. Barely drinkable, can’t really find anything to justify the style, more like a light malt liquor. Awful. At least I got a state tick out of this.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From 355 ml can. Pours a hazy orange-gold with a tight lasting white head. Aromas are light but there’s some baked apple, biscuits and slightly rotten oranges. Taste is similarly light with sweet cooked apple, oranges and a bit of a floral note. No bitterness to speak of. Clean finish but leaves a lingering fruity aftertaste. A bit muddled.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
BB 03/10/2016. Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a two-finger white foamy head that retained well and laced OK. Carbonation high with medium bubbles. Aroma of grainy malts plus a defined sweetness, possibly honey; also subtle spices that become more defines as the beer warms. Taste of sweet grain with spice/cloves coming and slight honey as it warms. Light body, a bit thin. Clean, crisp, refreshing with spice/cloves on the finish. Average.

Can from Wine Emporium Newstead 080615. Solid golden amber colour with a clean white head. Aroma and flavour are both a bit off, not sure what it is. Great looking can though.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can from Beers of Europe.
Pours Orange-Gold with single finger, and rather solid head. Aroma of baked beans....god knows...orange, grain. Initial honey taste, loads of honey, then malts, lots of orange, and some light grainyness. Not too sure I enjoyed it towards the end as it warmed but was good when cool..

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can at Bodean’s in Fulham. Head disappears quickly leaving it look a flat, dull straw colour, Almost no hop, it’s malty but lifeless, with the main positive being a bit of a citrus streak. Certainly not the craft quality I’d hope for though, nor something worth paying £5 a can for.

June 25th, 2013 - Blondes don’t tend to get my thirsty, except maybe in the deep of summer. But that’s where we are, so my appetite is whetted, and I’m eager to feel the droplets of condensation on my fingers. It’s blonde and hazy, with a thin layer of foam on the head, and a deep, intense flavor of graham cracker and butter. Have you ever prepared a homemade cheesecake with a graham cracker crust? It smells like that baking process. And the butter appears in the nose as well. Like, lots and lots and lots of butter - enough to coat a large bucket of popcorn and then supply a breakfast restaurant for a morning or two. There’s also a little sweet pear surfing on a mild carbonation, but I can’t get past the crushing, golden wave of popcorn flavor. Let me also add that I THINK this is considered an unwelcome flavor in this brew, in which case this is a massive mistake. But even if it isn’t, I’m not in love with the essence of butter that this beer reflects.
