UPDATED: SEP 9, 2017 Bottle. Clear golden beer. Modest head. Aroma: Strong biscuity malt, floral & spicy hop. Light to medium body. Lots of sweetish biscuit malts and restrained lager yeast on taste. Light spicy bitterness as well. Flavourful.

Barwa jasnozłota, klarowna. Piana bardzo słaba i niska, średnio-pęcherzykowa, koloru białego. Całkowicie znika po paru sekundach. Aromat słodowo-kwiatowy ledwo wyczuwalny (szybko się ulatnia). Smak lekko kwaskowy, szczypie w język, w tle majaczy lekki posmak ciasteczek maślanych. Na finiszu minimalna goryczka i lekki posmak kwasku cytrynowego.

Tap. Didn’t expect too much but it’s fairly ok. Light bitter, crisp, not too sweet. Not the best aftertaste though. at The Miller’s Arms in Canterbury

Light straw like how much you get in a kilo. Faintly offensive aroma wirh some astringency. Of all the things to import on tap to the Caribbean why this? Rap at All Out Sports bar in Port of Spain.

330 ml clear bottle bought at Market Place by Jason’s in iSquare, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Clear pale golden colour; Less than one-quarter finger head with residual soapy white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Fair sticky lacing and notable slight carbonation; Slightly pungent smell of malt, with floral, light sugar, bread, lemon and smelly grass; Close to light sweet taste of very light malt, with grains, light floral, very light sugar, dry biscuits, very light skunk, thin lemon and light to mid bitter grassy hops; Light body, watery palate; Mouth feel is very light maltyless in very thin background. Grainy, thin floral with underlining light sweetness. Dry biscuity with thin lemon to round. Meh!... Hoppiness is floral, lemon and smelly grass with thin skunk in nose, same in taste but even lighter; Bitterness is notable for an abrupt, close to medium astringent grainy finish; Quite dry after taste. Fairly bitter to mouth.

Comments: This is a typical light Lager in a clear bottle – watery and lightweight in almost every aspect expect the hops, which is fairly bitter for a macro but then the clean bottle ruined it, albeit slightly. Iffy and once is enough.

On tap at The spanish Galleon in Greenwich. Served very cold. Yellow, some head and well carbonated.minimal hop flavor, some lightly sweet malt, and surprisingly a little spice. Not bad, for what it is. Has some palate.

En frisk blonde øl. Der er ikke meget smag af gæren men fin humlet og sødme i den.

330ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki) as "Faversham Steam Brewery, Whitstable Bay Blonde, Premium Lager"
Slightly mange-tout lagery aroma. Straw, large but quickly settling head. Clear glass bottle, so -1 to look. Dullish taste, simple malts, a bit flapjacky, harsh bitterness, says extract or abused to me. Skunked maybe? Pay twice. Pretty bulky brew, not the Shep that used to be able to hold its head high.
