Enjoyable Blond beer which only real downside has got to do with it’s aroma. It is hopped and reminds slightly of duvel with an attempt at an alcoholic taste, but the aroma still stays an attempt and the beer is not that full bodied. Anyway it is enjoyable and a good alternative on parties.

Bottle at the George Club W1. Cool label. Slight caution to this as it came out of the freezer so cold I could barely touch the glass! Very pale yellow-gold colour, hint of spicy hop on the nose, backed up on the palate. Somewhat light bodied and lacking complexity and finishes quickly. Competent but not especially interesting.

Draught @ Belgo; This one pours a crystal clear, light golden color. There was a large white head onit that drops off quickly. Some lacing. The aroma is decent. Some grassiness and faint malts. the taste is fairly crisp and clean, although a little light. No real bitterness at all. Easy to drink.

Same bottle as pictured. Poured clear golden yellow with little head. It was skunked but sort of refreshing.

Pint at the stables in Stanley. Bright yellow with a frothy white head, and lively carbonation. Remember, its a pale lager, so to be honest, I wasn’t expecting a lot, but I was pleasantly suprised to get malt and hops. : I remember Stella Artois before it became massively commercial and ended up being brewed in megatanks in Monmouthshire or somewhere, and it was O.K. as a refresher: This is similarly O.K.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On-Tap (Pint in Glasgow):
Sweet tasting, lots of corn & bread. Faint background smell of barely & a slight skunky aroma.
Clear golden blond, with a tiny white, bubbly head that settles to a soapy lacing almost instantly.
Sweet syrupy & grassy hops. Not verycomplex with some grain in there too.
Smooth feeling lager that is on the light side of medium bodied with a very slightly warm feel to it.
This is a very average beer that is overpriced at £4 a pint. Quite sweet and very well balanced overall but without anything to make it stick out. Overpriced!

On tap at Academy of Beers. It doesn’t smell bad. It tastes ok... Better than Kroenenberg. Not much more one can say about a pale lager, is there?

Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour, with a large white head. The aroma is all malts, wheat and a hint of floral from the hops. The taste is malty sweetness at first, with clear presence of grains. In the aftertaste there is a nice spicy hop bitterness.

Decent beer, but I like the Vedett Extra White better. Faint smell, ok taste but a bit dull in my opinion.
