3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle bought at Food Wise in Shek Wui Hui, Sheung Shui.
Looks: Clear amber golden colour; Less than one quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Excellent sticky lacing and active slight carbonation.
Aroma: Quite fragrant Ale malt, with grapefruits flesh and peels, light tropical fruits, honey, floral, caramel, sugar, biscuits, lemon and light grass.
Taste: Close to medium sweet Ale malt, with strong caramel, strong floral, orange, citrus peels, strong molasses, earth, dry biscuits, lemon, strong bitter hops and sharp grass.
Body: Mid to light body. Very slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good Ale maltyness in a slightly thinned but smooth background. Strong astringent grassy hops up front with lingering orange and grapefruits, followed by strong caramel and floral. Nice strong sweetness. Earthy biscuity with lemon to round. Nice!
Hoppiness: Grapefruit flesh and peels, tropical fruits, floral, lemon and light grass in nose. Strong floral, orange, citrus peels, earth, lemon and sharp grass in taste; Bitterness is very strong for a lasting, strong astringent bitter sweet malty finish.
After Taste: Dry. Citrusy and strong bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is a solid Golden Ale with rich maltyness, fair dry-hopped fruity aroma, good caramel taste with a big citrusy hoppiness which balanced the sweetness nicely. A pretty good Summer thirst quencher!

Golden Eye var ett passande namn, då utseendet på ölen tilltalade mig men sin gyllene färg. Lite kort i doft dock. En öl jag kommer att dricka igen.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
