This rich and golden beer is heavily hopped with powerful fruity Cascade hops and these come through at the end to provide a great finish.

Vladivostok (407) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 9, 2015
Quite a nice golden with a slight honey aroma, decent body and gentle hop rate. I am struggling to come up with new descriptions for the plethora of golden ales which are currently hitting the market. Pleasant but not one to pick out in a blind tasting.

500ml bottle from ales by mail. Dark golden in colour with a decent sized frothy white head. Honey sweetness and floral aromas linger. Nicely hopped bitterness comes through. Subtle malts, a slight earthiness and sweetness make a good tasting beer.

Benzai (12192) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle shared with Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Clear slightly rusty orange color, average sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, caramel, bitter, lightly butter. Sometimes a whiff of solid hops comes by, but it’s gone quite quick. Lingering bitter finish. Decent body and carbonation. Not bad.

rosenbergh (9680) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 22, 2013
Cask at the O’Hara’s, Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy brown colour with a tiny off-white head. Rosehip, dark berries, mild fruitiness and malt in the aroma. Dark fruits, bitterness, rosehip, malt, woody dryness in the flavour. Mild but bitter hoppy. Tasty.

aronvarga (438) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 21, 2013
500 ml bottle. Cloudy, golden-amber colour, small long-life off-white creamy head, vegan aroma, medium watery body, smooth fizziness, creamy caramely sweet taste, simply hoppy bitterness with slight floral flavors in the palate.

imdownthepub (12595) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2012
Cask conditioned at The Crown, Oxford. Gold with white head. Weetabix type malt note, biscuity, grainy with a limited earthy hop note. A little thin on the palate, it comes over as a little bland. O.k but not memorable.

omhper (22623) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2011
Cask at The Drum, Leyton, London. Hazy pale amber. Fruity sweaty nose. Sweet and fruity with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Fairly low bitterness. Unremarkable.

TheCametron (2273) - CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 16, 2011
Cask at the Espy. Pours clear gold with white head like a generic cask ale. Smells of feet. Taste is a chore. A very poor cask ale.

Funny bubblegum like flavour, too sweet for me but overall fairly drinkable - probably wouldn’t have more than one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
