reebtogi (4051) - Edmonton, Alberta, - 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.

Bottle at Sarah’s house. Adnams fest. Golden coloured pour with a thin fleeting white head. Aroma is hay, light lemon, some mineral and English yeast. Flavour is crisp lemon, hay, bisvuity malt and English yeast esters. Palate is light and refreshing. Moderate high carbonation. Decent.

Belle couleur cuivre clair Mousse peu persistante Nez peu marque un peu poussiereux Gout marque d agrume de houblon americain Palais agreable carbonnation equilibree Une Lager ou une Ale? Une lager comme beaucoup devrait prendre exemple comme produits a la fois plaisant et "facile" d acces.

thegreenrooster (3159) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 10, 2014
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is pale malts and a bit of lagery wet paper bag. Flavor is more with the dryish pale malt and more of the wet paper bag. Taste awfully like a lager without being one.

Jimthechap (1549) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 10, 2014
You see what it says on the label? Well that’s pretty well on the nose and you add the facet that it looks like the archetypal golden/blonde ale with a bit more body. Kind of like the barmaid with a bit more on the back axle that you’d still crawl over broken glass with your fly open for. Names have been hereafter excluded... Bex*. *May or may not be her real name.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Pours a nice lightly hazy golden with A big head & lots of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is bright, lightly fruity, a touch husky & a little coppery.

The flavor is modestly bitter, but nicely so. Everything is well balanced between mild hop fruitiness & nice toasty malt. It’s mild but it’s very pleasant.

SarkyNorthener (1694) - Walsall (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle from local offie. Golden amber beer with small head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit and citrus hops. Taste is hops with a little bitterness, citrus, mild grapefruit and a little smoke. One of the few occasions when the bottle is better than the cask. Decent.
