Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2011
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus, biscuity malt, some butter. Light bodied with flavors of citrus, grass and faint tropical fruits. Maybe a bit watery, but still a nice uncomplicated session ale.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 9, 2011
[500ml bottle, Caley Sample Room, Edinburgh] Served as part of pairing dinner at Caley Sample Room. Thin-looking golden pour with a bubbly white head. Some hop on the nose, along with a touch of bitter malt. On the palate, the grassy hops were prevalent, but the beer finished slightly thin as the malts gave way to nothing. Decent bitter, however, the hop profile saves it [06062011]

gyllenbock (4716) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 8, 2011
Bottle. (Yellowhammer Summer Ale) Clear golden with a medium, fluffy white head. Aroma and taste of hops, malt, bread and some grass. Thin body, and with a short and dry aftertaste. Drinkable but nothing special.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 4, 2011
Pours out in a clear golden colour with a low thick white head. Pale malts lemony and spicy hops in the aroma. Medium to light-bodied with notes of straw, lemon-zest grass and mild flowers with undertones of pale and biscuity malts. Crisp medium-bitter if a bit short finish of flowers, citric fruits and grass.

Bottled from Systembolaget as Yellowhammer Summer Ale Clear golden with a large, white head. Fresh and buttery aroma with citric notes. Pretty light body and light grassy bitterness. Some toffee. Bland and dissapointing.

SaintMatty (5315) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 28, 2011
500ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Tea and hops feature in the aroma. Sherbet, lemon and a hint of grapefruit in the taste. I was expecting it to have a bit more flavour, but it’s not bad.

dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - MAY 24, 2011
50cl bottle at home. Watery amber pour with a massive mess of white foam on top. Slight nutty malt, slight grapefruit aroma. Taste is malty still, but with a healthy injection of citrus hops. Finish is medium length, rounded but with a slight bite to it. Pretty decent beer, very refreshing and surprisingly full-flavoured for the ABV. Amazing with slightly spicy Italian food!
