Alexander Keith's - Ambrosia Blonde

Pours golden with a short lived thick white head.
All I can detect in the aroma is some kind of fruit.
Medium mouth feel.
Very little hop to this one. Mostly a fruity flavor with a touch of slightly burnt caramel. What little hop flavor there is comes out at the finish which is a fairly nice drying hit.
From a big brewer this is not bad stuff, and it was free. Thank you Keith's!

Griffon Extra Blonde

Full white head, short lived but leaving a lot of lace.
The beer is a light amber colour.
It has an aroma which is simply malt and hop, with a bit of earthiness. It reminds me of the aromas of Canadian mainstream beers from the sixties.
The first thing that hit me was the creamy mouth feel, not at all watery.
The taste is quite earthy, it's a simple but full blend of malt and hops with a slight biscuit taste mixed with a bit of earth and a light citrus finish. The hop bitterness is very pronounced and there is a subtle sweetness which lies just below the surface.
The aftertaste is quite light and pleasant, it leaves a sparkle of carbonation on the tongue which is quite pleasing.
All in all, this beer brought back memories of what most Canadian "mainstream" beers used to taste like before the big brewers decided that most people really did not like the taste of beer.
I will buy this one again whenever I feel nostalgic.
