bbertels (507) - NORWAY - OCT 5, 2015
Bottle. Bought at Tesco, St. Andrews. Well a blonde is a blonde and when it is a Premium variety it goes without saying that there is not much of a punch. Drinkable and OK and not too watery but lacks a bit of spark.

Clear golden color with a fine white head. Mellow fruity, floral, mild citric and herbal. Medium body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Fresh nice thirst quencher.

Cokemonkey11 (1123) - - MAR 27, 2015
Brown bottle, Edinburgh. Pours medium-pale amber with a light head, subsiding quickly. Scent is rather mild, with light malt notes. Taste is medium sweet and medium pale ale - good, satisfying. Palette ends with a pleasant dryness. A bit sticky but good.
