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.

At first it looks like more orange, but the colour is clearer at light, gold definitely, with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet, dominated by citrus and floreal notes. I read a lot of reviews speaking of peaches, but I think there’s something like tropical fruits in it, and caramel also. Very inviting. I was read for very hoppy and bitter first sip, but it was way softer than expected. In mouth the beer keeps all the features that tickled the nose, even enhanced by a quick medium-heavy bitter finish, like a little friendly slap on your cheeks. Body is light and carbonation quite soft. So refreshing, it’s very difficult to stop drinking. This beer could go down with a single sip! I really didn’t see it coming, but I loved this one.

UPDATED: APR 8, 2016 Vetinen kokemus. Ei erityistä etu-, keski- tai jälkimakua, no mitä nyt palealesta ei löytyis.

Pours cloudy amber with light off white head. Aroma of hops, hint of rose. Taste slightly bitter hops, orange peel all with a hint of malt. Pleasant on the palate. Nice enough.

33cl bottle from M&S, Camberley. A bright amber pour with a ring of white head; grainy aroma with some red berries and lime juice; bready taste with a touch of rye; then a long spicy bitterness and some red fruit to finish. A solid golden ale.

Taste comprises bitter orange, earthy hop, light tropicana, spice, bready notes, caramel malt. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok ... a Golde @5.6%?
