reebtogi (4180) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 5, 2012
500ml bottle pours a golden color with a finger of white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is light fruity with hints of citrus and cereal grains. Taste is a sharp citrusy bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light bodied with modest carbonation leaving a nice tickle on the tongue. A nicely done blonde ale which is very full and flavorful and recommended.

pintbypint (2602) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2012
500ml brown bottle. 5% abv on label. Golden and clear in the glass. White head, fairly creamy foam and decent lacework. Nose has citrusy orangey hops with some malt sweetness. Taste has a pretty solid malt character, fruity up front, notes of orange and some grapefruit. Some bitterness lingers, a bit of grass and fairly big grapefruity/citrus hops in the aftertaste. Light body, soft mouthfeel. A nice beer, more hops that expected. .

Grzesiek79 (3198) - Radom, POLAND - JUL 1, 2012
Aromat kwiatowy. Piwo w smaku wyraźnie chmielowe, goryczkowe. Kolor złotawy, ale jakby lekko mętnawy, napewno nie klarowne. Piana niewielka lecz trwała i utrzymująca się do końca picia tego dobrego trunku.

BlackHaddock (3747) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2012
Sept 2006: First time I have had the bottled version. Different animal to the cask beer I drink when in Southwold. This blonde beer should be cooled before serving, which is unusual for a British beer. The New World hops Chinook and Columbus give the beer its name. Light and refreshing, it is, but the bottle says citrus and grapefruit aromas, not sure I got those, but overall, a fine beer for a hot sunny day.
