COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A true pale ale. The full body and rich gold colour comes from a blend of wheat, pale ale and crystal malts. It’s floral and lime citrus nose is created by the extensive use of carefully selected New World aroma hops. The final stage of dry hopping then produces a rich berry flavour for a big refreshing, satisfying brew.

UPDATED: SEP 14, 2011 Re-rating - nothing to add to the tasting notes except that the taste is definitely not faint on this occasion and this is a very enjoyable beer. However, I must have been in a very tight mood to give those original scores. Previous rating 27/03/11 6/3/7/3/12 = 3.1 33cl bottle. Orangey brown colour with nice head. The nose is very interesting - wilted spinach and earthy flavours. The taste is of rocket, pine and grapefruit. The taste is a little faint but there some bitter grapefruit and pine. The palate is full and creamy with a bitter/refreshing finish. I would probably only want to drink one or two at a time - it’s more interesting than good but good all the same.

dantheman278 (1359) - SCOTLAND - MAR 8, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2011 KEG debut at Cloisters. Sadly this was the first time I?d had it though, so can?t compare. Orange copper with a very tiny white head. Hoppy, fruity nose. Crazy caramel/vanilla note too. Orange zest. Highlights are big carbonation and hops, some nice fruit on the palate. Nice deep fruits, resinous hoppy aftertaste. Pretty nice, very unique. EDIT: had this a few times since. One of my go-to beers if there’s nothing new on offer. +0.2

kseecs16 (1192) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours a light amber gold with some effervesence and a big soapy off-white head. Leaves sporadic soapy lacing. Grapefruity citrus aroma. Flavor is fairly mild, a hoppy bitterness most evident on a light body.

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 1, 2009
330ml bottle as Organic Goldeneye Pale Ale from Cornelius Beer & Wine in Edinburgh. A seasonal beer with a label that says 6.5% abv while the brewery’s website says 6.2% abv. Anyway, it’s a drink with an inviting aroma and a flavour that does not quite deliver. Cloudy, late-straw body with a dense, but low, white head. Fragrant aroma of plain hops, very promising. Soft hoppy flavour with bitter endnotes. Cool and pleasant impression, but nonetheless a bit anonymous in character (shared with Finn, Tromsø 23.04.2009).

Bottle 0,33l at 6,5% labeled "organic". Thanks to Rune! Golden colored. A rapidly disappearing creamy head. Inviting aroma of fruit and berrries. Rounded flavor of the same. OK but a bit unvaried. KI=2

Courtesy of Fonefan. It’s a warm golden beer with a small head. The aroma is spicy with notes of yeast and fruit. The flavour has sweetness, notes of honey, heather, flower, fruit and some dry citrus in the finish.

Bottled@Fonefan. Golden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruits, ops and some mild notes of yeast. Flavour is peach, fruity hops and some sweet wood. Mild dull yeastyness lurking in the background, other a rather pleasant brew.
