McGarglePoor29 Apr 2010 On a straw coloured canvas the brewer applied hints of hops with no body and no real flavour. Undemanding and now brewed to 4.3%. Absolutely no resemblance to Budweiser Budvar.

AndrewAcceptable18 Jun 2009 Not as good as earlier in the week as it was a bit less lively and fresh but nothing wrong with it and quite drinkable.
AndrewGood15 Jun 2009 This was very drinkable. Light and frothy with hints of grapefruit and orange.

IanGood28 Aug 2006 If anything, slightly better condition than the day before. Seemed a bit more settled. Flavours, as before, of citrus, whilst still being juicy and in no way soapy.
IanGood27 Aug 2006 Pale gold colour with lasting white head. Citrusy hop aroma with juicy malt in the mouth and then lovely citrus fruit on the end. Lots of lemon and grapefruit and bits of tangerine. Lovely stuff.

Butcombe Blonde

5.00% ABV.

The nose is a bit like Budweiser Budvar. A light and fruity, with a medium bitter finish. A clean tasting, refreshing, easy to drink premium beer. Made with The palest English malt (sometimes known as lager malt), using The finest Slovenian Styrian, and Czechoslovakian Saaz hops .

We have tried this beer 8 times.

We have given this beer an average score of Acceptable to Good.
