COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This light ale has a deep golden colour with a smooth, frothy head. It is very perfumed with an unmistakable hint of aromatic hops and a fruity (citrus) note from the spices used in production. The body has an intense yet distinctive bitterness and a strong malty taste which is a delight to the palate. The overall effect, however, is a slight dryness and hoppiness.

Delbomber (387) - Philadelphia, USA - SEP 8, 2001
Metallic, melon nose for this clear, yellow-brown ale. Sharp, slightly malty, alcoholic taste, there is too much carbonation for this to be smooth. Has a creamy head and drying quality, and is rather crisp with hints of dark fruit.

Blonde in color, nice belgian lace. Fruity, Estery, and earthy in aroma and flavor. Very traditional in style. Very drinkable at 7%.

haukur (1917) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUL 9, 2004
a very nice blonde. Somewhat pilsner feel, quite yeasty with floral earthy tones with some bitterness. Aroma was bitter oranges and apples with an outhouse feel to it. Very very drinkable but lacks a bit of complexity and is quite straight forward
Earlier Rating: 7/7/2004 Total Score: 3.3
an avarage blonde. Easy drinking, yeasty, surprisingly hoppy and acid. Floral, yeasy aroma, nice big head but fainted quickly ... nice little beer but nothing mind blowing

MoritzF (9759) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 1, 2005
(bottle, best before 05.08.2004) Hazy orange colour with big yeast floaties and small creamy white layer. Dusty and yeasty fruity (orange, peach) aroma with a touch of cloves. Light bitter flavour, medium body. Citrus fruity and slightly sweet malty taste with yeasts with a lemon fruity, light hop bitter and slightly alcoholic but warming finish. Quite rounded brew.
