Better than some are making out, hoppy taste but if you like it is fine. Not very complex but worth a go

at a tasting, thanks, smallish creamy head, crystal clear gold color, biscuity malty aroma with a fruity hint, light fruity hoppy flavor, herbal hint and some maltiness, light to medium bitterness, light sourness. Simple but nice.

500ml clear bottle, filtered. "Refreshingly Hoppy Ale" it says, but this is a blonde ale geared more to the lager drinkers than the APA drinkers. It presents as a lager with an indifferent pale malt, slightly greasy and grainy, but otherwise not there. Some mild dry bittering in the finish leaving a powdery taste is mostly what the hops give you, though there is some lemon and citric notes present. The SA name is just branding - it has nothing in common with that beer. Not good. It’s drinkable, but only just. And the clear glass means you get a whiff of light struck hops when you open the bottle.

Not a fan. Has a synthetic aftertaste, that gets more apparent as it warms, the further down the bottle you get. Not an awful beer but wouldn’t buy again.

Hoppy aroma. Golden honey colour. Clear as a bell. Sharp tasting. Hoppy aftertaste.

Golden-coloured ale with a white head. Aroma is not very strong, and the taste is quite malty with a light bitterness from the hops. Pleasant taste, with hints of citrus and herbs. Flavoursome and highly drinkable, but just a little thin.

Bottle. Pale orange, small white head. Drank socially without taking notes - numbers only rating. Malty, soft bitterness, a bit meh.

Disappointed by the lack of taste to this beer. Tasted like any generic lager

A spectacular beer.
I have tried can & bottle, can is far better.
Deeply satisfying hoppy ale.
As good as it gets from a can I think!

Klassisch Goldenes mit McTapps geteilt. Mild und leicht hopfig mit nur einer ganz wenig gefilterten Seele. Etwas dünn, jedoch auch mit Zitrusfrüchten im HIntergrund. Wässriger Schluss jedoch angenehme Trinkbarkeit.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Sainsburys in Folkestone. Pours out in a deep golden colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and straw with some caramel hints. Taste of mild hops, straw, light malt, barley, flowers and herbs. Mild and thin finish with some light unpleasant acid hints. Drinkable, yet nothing special.
