(Bottle) Lively golden beer. Head quickly disappeared. Fruity aroma. Taste is a slightly sour one with a very faint edge of hop. It’s a bit bland and watery to be honest.

Many thanks to Erzengel for sharing! A almost clear golden beer with a mid-sized most good lasting off-white head. aroma of grainy malt, yeast, flowers, spices. Taste of mild sweet pale malt, soft flowers, caramel, butter.

Grainy nose with hints of citrus. Fresh smooth beginning. Easy to drink with no depth, hints of grain with not much bitterness. A bit dry in the aftertaste, refreshing and thirst-quenching, very easy to drink summer brew.

MrJamesMcEwan (248) - SCOTLAND - APR 26, 2014
Pours a slightly cloudy, golden colour, with low carbonation & very little head. Aroma of butterscotch and faint lemon. Medium bodied, malted beer. Taste is malty sweet, very fruity and dry finish. A lovely refreshing, very easy drinking summer beer.

Bottle from Tesco, Edinburgh. This is a hazy pale straw coloured beer with a strong malty flavour, toffee and citrus notes with a very dry fruity finish.

500ml bottle at home. Pours clear yellow gold, little to no head. Smells of hay, butterscotch and soap. Lord only knows where the citra went. I imagine it was filtered and pasteurised out of existence. Watery and dull, bordering on offensive.

imdownthepub (15336) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled, 500ml from Tesco in Dingwall, Ross & Cromarty, Scotland. Gold with white head. Lively blonde beer, there was a tangy bitter lemon note with a background grapefruit flavour. Crisp and fresh throughout the beer, really quite enjoyable.

4.2
AtronSeige (1715) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 26, 2013
Aroma: Fresh bread, peach, honey Appearance: Slightly hazy pale yellow body. Small white long-lasting head. Lacing. Flavour: Medium-high bitterness, medium-sweetness. Initially bitter upfront, then the sweetness kicks in, but still leaving a lingering bitterness. Medium hop flavours. light tart. Dry finish. Fruity, each, guava, Palate: Medium body. soft but active carbonation. Overall: I find this to be a lovely beer. Well balanced, but still taking you on a roller-coaster ride of flavours. Amazing! To be a "true" blond ale, it has to be sweeter, but I would rather they change the name than change the beer! 500 ml bottle, poured. Thanks Andre 6B. Blonde Ale
