3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased at systembolaget in Goteborg sometime in the middle of April, 2011. Overall, this is a very robust ale, with good body and lots of flavor. It was a bit more hoppy than what I expected from a blonde.
Pours with a deep amber color and a medium-sized off-white head. The lacing is very dense and sticky: the appearance is excellent.
The aroma is grassy, fruity, malty and sweet, but a tad bit metallic.
The mouth feel is somewhat oily, but a bit too flat I suppose, which is surprising considering the density of the head. The is taste is relatively complex, starting out with a hoppy kick that’s reminiscent of its grassy aroma. The bitterness dissipates a bit during the finish, which bring out some of the sweeter malty notes.
A very good blonde, but with a balance that clearly favors hops.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had the beer form the Saveur Biêre easter assortiment. The beer has a nice look. The color of the beer is a nice golden orange. The color looks quite rich. The beer is crystal clear. On top a nice rough layer of white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, leaving hardly anything.
The smell of the beer is good. It isn’t extremely strong though. I smell some malty aroma’s and some more bitter aroma’s of the hops. I smell some stone fruit hop aroma’s, though not that strong. I wish the beer was stronger.
The taste of the beer is nice. The beer comes with a firm malty base. I love this maltiness. You can taste the raw ingredient, which is very nice. On top of this there are some nice hoppy flavours. They give a nice bitterness but also a nice fruity acidity. The hop flavours are simple, but great in their simplicity. The taste is very fresh and it is well balanced. Sweet malts, bitter hops and that tiny fruity hop acidity. They all account for the well balanced character of the hops. Lovely.
The palate is good. The body of the beer is medium, and carbonation is light. The texture is a bit slick. The finish is nice and long and contains a proper dry sensation. Good beer.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from systembolaget. Boom, what an ale. Very over hopped for a golden ale in a good way, sometimes a bit aggressive in the hop/bitter department but then again, I’m used to that in non-english goldens. A lot of flavour, just very scrumptious and if only we could get this on cask in a pub in Sweden at a decent price I’d be a happy chappy.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grassy hops, a somewhat earthen taste with floral notes. Fruity and bitter, not a long palate. A very easy, pleasant beer to drink.

Découverte dans la Saveur Box. Bière blonde au nez doucement houblonné. Au goût elle est un peu fruitée et houblonnée. Pas trop mal et rafraîchissante.

En lättdrucken guldfärgad öl. Känns balanserad med bra maltighet och ingen överdriven humleprofil. Helt klart en god och bra öl men inget extraordinärt på något sätt, men den känns ren och fräsch!

Bottle at home. Pours a golden colour with a white head. Aroma of pale malt, grassy hops, hay and some oranges and diacetyl. Hay in the flavour along with pale malt, grassy hops, sweet corn and other sweet tones in the background. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a balanced bitterness. A decent golden ale with a nice hoppy touch.
