VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - OCT 23, 2011
Sampled at The Great Lost Bear - Pours a golden amber with a small white head that fades to almost nothing. Aroma is malty with a hint of citrus hops. Flavor pretty much follows along with a slightly sweet taste. Mild lingering bitterness. OK...

Pours gold into a Sam glass. White head recedes to skim surface leaving scant spiders. Sour toast aromas. Soft with sweet caramel upfront turning sour in the medium length finish.

fonefan (35735) - VestJylland, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2011

Cask (gravity) @ GBBF 2011, Great British Beer Festival, Earls Court Exhibition Centre, London, England.

Light unclear medium orange yellow colour with a small, frothy - fizzy, good - fair lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, moderate to light light heavy hoppy, fruity, peach. Flavor is moderate to light light heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long to average duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to flat. [20110803]

GBBF. Cask. Light haze on this gold beer. Light dry palate. A little pale malt. Mild citrus. Dry finish. A bit meh! And a bit dry!

MaBeer1972 (1361) - Taunton, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 17, 2011
A cloudy golden brew. Sweet bready aroma. Flavor is of sweet golden malts with a good hoppy bitterness. Very drinkable. Very sessionable, indeed.

Brandman (2114) - 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.

tommeagher (222) - Jersey City, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2011
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 (13755) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2011
Cask at GBBF 2011, Wednesday. Clear golden/amber - white head. Tea, herbal, medium malty, sweetness, citrus, orange, light piney, wooden, caramel. Nice.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, 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.
