Yes, it is golden, at least what comes to color. Smells really nice, like hops with honey. Taste is in align with smell, and aroma agrees. The only thing I could wish being better is mild wateriness. Other than that this is well balanced good beer straight from super market, which makes this stuff to have great price quality ratio.

500ml bottle from Booths, Penwortham. Pours clear golden amber with a thin white head. Strong peach aroma, nectarine, yellow plum. Taste is sweet, loads more peach. A bit much to be honest. Hard to find the beer underneath.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (Händlerlieferung). Gut gekühlt eine tolle Erfrischung. Klares intensives Gold im Glas mit weißem Schaum. In der Nase sofort Aprikosenduft. Im Mund kommt noch leichte Orangenbittre dazu. Im Abgang allerdings ziemlich wässrig.

From Citymarket Stenhaga, Vasa for about 4€. Sweet honey aroma. And very strong peach taste. It’s a beer for a sunny day. Not recommended If it’s cloudy. I’m not all that into sweet caramelly beers, but I’d say this one is ok.

Pours golden amber, medium white head. Clear. Very strong peach aroma. Sweet, fruity flavor gives way to dry biscuity finish. Easy drinking.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 4, 2016
Strong peach and hop aroma. Amber with small cream head. Peachy flavor layered over grains and finishing with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Mouthfeel is a bit fluffy. Really quite pleasant on a warm day!

thellgren (830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2016
0.5 l bottle from K-Supermarket Ruoholahti, Helsinki. Golden clear colour, practically no head. Aroma has peach, well, and so does the taste too. Also some English hops. Quite good with some distinctive taste to set it apart from the others of the same style.

TheKernOwl (194) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2016
Peach, butterscotch and nectarine nose seems OK. Then more peach and gentle malts in body, which seem to separate (left-right stereo style). Initially thought this was a touch syrup-y, but is nowhere near as bad as Timmermans Peche (tried alongside this), and seems to get mellow-er when warmer.

Bottle. Appearance - golden amber with a decent head. Nose - butterscotch as soon as the cap is popped. Then sweet peach right enough. Taste - peach and butterscotch again. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a finish that could be cleaner. Overall - this gets very sickly as you go down the glass.

nybol (1460) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Næsten intet skum, med en stærk lugt af parfume eller blomst. Let humlet og en helt klar smag af fersken. Nærmest en frugtøl.
