COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Pasteurised. Seasonal - Spring.
"Bound to satisfy".
Triple hopped - Super Styrian hops added twice to the coppers then Styrian Goldings added. Hopping Hare is thrice hopped with three types of hop used during the brewing process. Aromatic Goldings and Cascade combine to provide an uplifting citrus-grapefruit and floral aroma, whilst First Gold carries the bitterness. The effect is a refreshing ale with a unique hoppy aroma and well-balanced bitterness that is bound to satisfy! It is a terrific match with roast lamb and spicy Thai dishes!

BitchPls (586) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2013
Clear, see through yellow/orange beer with a white head. Some toffee, caramel, bread, roasted coffee (like in the air around a coffee factory) and citrus notes on the nose. Smells very nice. The body is light and watery. Mouth feel is soft and round. The hops is about the same quality as in a normal pils. A bit buttery. Some caramel. Slight grassy bitterness. The aroma promised something a lot better and more interesting. This one’s rather dull disappointingly.

Weefannybaws (101) - Paisley, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2013
Bottle from Sainsbury’s. Pours a lovely light amber. Malty toffee on the nose, with hints of curry. Caramel overtones on the palate.

Pours light amber with white head. Caramel malty aroma with similar tastes. Good balance between hops and malts

SarkyNorthener (2243) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with small head and decent lacing. Aroma is a little grassy and lemon hops. Taste is of mild citrus hops, pale lager malts, grain and floral notes. Too carbonated for my liking. Drinkable but uninteresting.

gunnar (5596) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2013
Shared bottle at Cardinal. Pours clear straw coloured with no head at al. Aroma of light struck hops, far from delicious. Taste is mild with a strange artificial bitterness.

Holmen1 (2687) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2013
Kveldens første på mandag i annen 25.feb-12: ABV på 4.4%, og som bitterhumle er brukt First Gold. Aromahumler er EKG og Cascade. Klar gylden med hvitt skum. Lite aroma og daff ettersmak. Medium munnfylde. En ok og ganske frisk golden ale, hvis du liker stilen (noe Egil ikke gjør - han synes det er pingleøl).

500 ml clear bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.4%. Bittering hop is First Gold, aroma hops are Goldings and Cascade. Clear deep golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of lightstruck and grassy hops, some dusty notes too, a hint of toffee. The flavour is fairly refreshing and tolerably well hopped, on a buttery background with a hint of toffee again. Medium bitter aftertaste.

vipinvelp (2312) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2013
Clear light orange, darker yellow with pure white foam head, lacing to glass. Aroma is quite unique, hoppy, some yeast. Taste is also unique, bitter but in a different way, have to get used to this beer. Dry aftertaste. (Moscow 201302)

Bright clear gold - amber beer, tiny white head. Crisp palate. Fresh lagerish malt. Reasonable hops - trace of orange. Quite a carbonated sting in the finish. Fairly malty aftertaste. Mild bitter linger. Not bad, pretty drinkable.
