cgarvieuk (14888) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle at home from my GBBF haul ... golden amber ... big foam head ... light sweet malt ... light fruity hop ... big foam in mouth quite bitter in linger ... easy drinking but mediocre.

saxo (14107) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are a little on the malty side, but still has decent hops, flowers and pine.

harrisoni (14009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2008
Bottle from GBBF 08. Deep gold, lasting off white head. Attractive light grapefruit hop aroma. Very faint cheddar cheese. Drinkable in the mouth, a little hard on the swallow. Decent malts. Some toffee, bit of butter. Finish has some floral PNW hops, but not overly bitter. Maybe a little too buttery. Hops are nice. Yep, fine.

yngwie (13923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 10, 2010
Can, at Haandverkerstuene. A hazy, orange beer with a minimal sized creamy, off-white head. Citrusy, piney nose where the malty sweetness are present but in the back. The flavor has citrus peel, pineapple, some notes of peaches, and a fine malty sweetness. Good bitterness too. Medium body, smooth. The finish is fruity and bitter. The can is really ugly, but the beer is quite nice. A bit sweet maybe, and the hop profile isn’t my preferred one, but it drinks very easy. 100312

Can at Hya Trols. Cloudy amber - white head. Toasted. Orange fruity. Bisquit. Light bubblehum. Candy nice hoppy. Fruity. Nice.

TBone (12934) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 27, 2011
Bottled 0,66l (BZ)
Slightly hazy deep honey golden color, good cloudy white head, lace. Light citrusy-bready hoppy nose with odd yeastyness. Light to medium bodied, quite watery palate. Weak pale malty flavor with citrusy late hoppyness. Simple and as such, boring, APA lacking the depth of eg. SNPA. Probably when fresh from tap, ok beer with spicey food.

(Bottle) Pours a hazy orange body with a large rocky off-white head. Aroma of mustiness, floral, and citrus. Flavor of floral hops with a light bitter finish.

bhensonb (11353) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 10, 2007
Light aroma of floral, citrus and malt. Burnished brass color with an active white head. Starts citrusy, adds some light malt, and finishes with light citrus hop. Finishes dryish. Medium mouthfeel. This is not so strongly flavored compared to an IPA or many APAs, but it has lots of flavor.
