JDBaker11058 (2024) - Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Appearance: clear coppery pour with a thick white head; pours much dirtier on the second go ’round. Aroma: citrusy and yeasty, almost like a tripel, with a bit of funk and and white pepper. Taste: some honeyed cereal grains, grassy hops, a hint of metal and aspirin, whole peppercorns, and slightly floral hops. Finish: dry like champagne, with a lingering herbal bitterness. Notes: Not a bad dirty blonde. Drinkable palate, if slightly forgettable flavors. Hops were not prominent, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Canned, 500 ml, courtesy of ogivlado, shared with him and Marko. Pours cloudy golden, short lasting, medium white head. Malty, sweetish, yeasty, some herbal notes, very metallic, short finish, empty. Too metallic.

Belle surprise pour cette "simple" bière blonde de caractère, aux arômes gourmands et au malt marqué.

ogivlado (7546) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 2, 2017
Canned 500ml. -from Geant Albertville. Golden coloured, big white head, slightly yeasty nose. Sweetish malty, light herbal hoppy, touch of yeast and metal with some weak spicy notes in the finish. So-so.

josanguapo (1376) - SPAIN - FEB 1, 2017
From Alcampo. In Teku glass. After dinner. Typical notes of a biere de garde but with a much smoother feeling that makes it feel less alcoholic and more drinkable. Herbal, grassy, with belgian yeast esters

Un bon moment avec cette jolie blonde ! bel équilibre, les houblons sont bien présents et sont bien mis en valeur à travers une bière très raffraichissante

McTapps (6685) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2017
The beer has got a clear amber colour with a steady head and medium body. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste of caramel, yeast, hops and sugar. Sweet malty finish.

Marko (5305) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JAN 20, 2017
0.5l can shared with ogivlado and Iznogud (thanks Ogi!). Golden body, white head. Canned by Jenlain. Err... the aroma shows a nice Belgian presence with some herbal hops on top but completely annihilated by a huge metallic note. Taste... creamy Belgian yeastiness, light herbal hops. Thankfully weaker metallic note. Not bad really for a canned beer, but that off flavor offsets it.

LazyPyro (787) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
33cl bottle from M&S. Pours a surprisingly clear golden/blonde colour, no sign of any yeast floating around, very thin white head which fades away quite quickly. Aroma: sweet malt, citrus, banana, yeast, honey. Taste: sweet malts, citrus fruit, yeasty, spicy, slight hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Medium-full body and mouthfeel, medium carbonation. A good drinkable beer, not outstanding but considering how cheap this is (£1.49) in the UK it’s pretty good for the price.

Ferris (13810) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 24, 2016
Bottle - Sweet honey and herbal notes. Clear gold with a rich white head. Light sweet malts, touch of honey and a dry light bitter finish. Nice, but nothing special.

Cunningham (7387) - Halden, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2016
Clear caramel color with a fine big frothy off white head. Ok intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and an average carbonation level. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Decent complexity in the flavor. Fruity, some yeast, malty, mild citric and some spices.
[Bottle at at Robert Ransome in Ipswich, England]
