2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Actually, just a rim of bubbles. The aroma is weak, with some pale malts and fruityness. Medium body, quite dry, and with a pleasant carbonation. Pale malts, fruityness and some bitterness in the flavor. A decent one, but nothing I’ll go far to find. 120622

I’ve tried the whole Calvinus set over various visits to Geneva Airport (where it is available at the wine shop by the train station). I’d say the blonde is probably the weakest. Just rather thin by comparison to the others. Still decent though and very easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow with half a finger of white head. Light malty, citrusy, yeasty, light spicy aroma. Taste is sweet and light malty with a bitter dry finish, floral and grassy hoppy, citrusy notes, a touch of Gunpowder. Very drinkable, better than other ratings suggests. But a pale lager? I doubt....

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle poured into a shaker. Wanted to try a Swiss beer while I was in Geneva. This is what I could find. Smells like a mass produced American lager, pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Taste is not much better, with malty notes and no real bitterness at all. Cannot even taste the hops. Stay away.
