Bottle. Pours translucent yell/golden orange. Aroma of honey, maple syrup, hay, cereal, yeast, dried dark fruit sweetness, light hops. Flavour largely the same, honey, citrus, yeast, sweet dark dried fruits, butter, black pepper. Oily mouth feel with a dry, gently hopped finish. Light beer - good thirst quencher for sunny days.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330mL bottle, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of candied apple, licorice, cough syrup and yeast. Flavour of overripe, acidic light fruits (white grape, apples, pears), floral spices - almost gingery, some perfume and yeast. Interesting take on the style, as this is anything but orthodox. Solid.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, shared with my wife. Hazy medium golden with a lively finely bubbled head. Aroma is sweet pale malts and soft orchard fruits with delicate floral spice (thinking ginger but not quite?). I’m immediately taken by the tasty biscuity malt structure, very nice malts here, and equally nice fruity hops with a light spice character. This is a style that normally holds little appeal for me, but I really enjoyed this beer.

A hazed golden ale with a thick lacing frothy white head. In aroma, a smooth honey malt, grainy and smooth, grassy field. In mouth, a nice malty ale with smooth creamy notes, perfumy, light alcohol warmth, not bad. Bieropholie import, tasted May 12 2012.
