Bottle. Cloudy light amber with a coat of off-white head. Aroma of lemon, pears, a little bread.Thinnish body. Fruity taste without much sweetness, a fair bit of citrus, a little biscuity malt. Mildly bitter finish. Carbonation is not huge but enough to make it a little lively.

mike_77 (3994) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - MAR 21, 2011
Roasted, nutty malt aroma. A little oak comes through too. Flavour is quite bitter from the roasted malt. Hop freshness comes through at the end.

Leighton (14304) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 14, 2011
Bottle at home with Lyoli. Pours clear gold with a modest, white head. Some honey, malts and yeast on the nose. Flavor is lightly sweet, faintly bready with some kind of tart citrus. Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes very crisp with fine, citrus bitters, mild sugars and hints of alcohol. Decent.

Bottle on 10/2/11. Nice golden colour as the name suggests. Fruity nose with quite a hint of raisins and sultanas. Decent white head. Fruity taste as well - much fruitier than I was expecting.
