A cloudy golden brew. Sweet bready aroma. Flavor is of sweet golden malts with a good hoppy bitterness. Very drinkable. Very sessionable, indeed.

Brandman (1992) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 14, 2011
GBBF. Golden body, white head. Crispy maltiness, low on hops. Quite dull and not comparable to good british golden ales.

Not an overpowering hops taste, but definitely thick, hoppy, dry, malty. Something about cold conditioning in the can makes it super crisp and clean tasting.

I like the can design on this one. This is a decent summer brew. I can’t really fault it for much but it doesn’t zing me and that’s not due to the ABV just to the hops used I suspect.

Theis (12756) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2011
Can: Pours to a slight cloudy light golden yellow colored body with a small white head. Aroma is mild, at best, showing notes of light bready, sweaty pale malt, and a very mild hops aroma that smells fruity like apples. Taste is light bready malt, some mild cereal notes, and some very mild grassy, spicy hop flavors. Light bodied, medium carbonated, finishes without much flavor beyond very mild grassy hops. An easy drink, but nothing special.

Cask@GBBF2011. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity, floral and wooden with some slight earthy and malty notes. Flavour is fruits, wood, floral and toasted notes along with some mild caramel malts. Nicely balanced.
