2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Clear pale gold with a white cap. Aromas of fresh hops, orange slices, grains. Crisp mouthfeel with apparent carbonation. Easy drinking as it should be. Big bitter smack at each sip. I was not expecting that. Bitter, peppery, sweetness is short and fleeting. This was not the refreshing drink I was expecting it to be. This had some harshness to it, that I donít think belongs in this light simple style. When I want some bitterness, Iíll reach for a IPA or hoppy PA. With a Blonde, I expect sweet flavors, light crisp feel, and an ease of drinkability. This was not that. Not my cup of tea. Pass.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Alus Celle, Riga). Straight from the bottle, while waiting a tram. Pale straw yellow color (sacrifice to Cthulu). Malty, sweet, grassy hops in aroma. Very malty, bit nutty, sweet and caramel in taste. Sweet malts and caramel in aftertaste. Itís hot outside and this beer is warm. Warm and fizzy. And too sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Cloudy yellow with a medium head. Slightly sour with some bitterness. Tastes like a cross between a wheat beer and a pale ale, with none of the benefits of either. Not very nice.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color with a bit of white head. Nothing much on the aroma, just some clean malt and a light hoppiness. Taste follows, light, clean, very much resembles a lager but with a more intense hoppy bitterness. A light and clean tasting beer but nothing to remember.
