light summery golden beer with small white head after first bottle decided that it was best served chilled light citrus flavor with hints of grapefruit not normally a fan of light golden beers but this would have to be an exception defintely one for a hot summers day wonderfully balanced bitter sweet aftertaste highly recommended

Benzai (11364) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 8, 2015
Bottle @ home. Clear golden color, full sized white head that lasts for quite a long time. Aroma is lightly malts and nicely hoppy. Tastes about the same: light to moderately malty, nicely hoppy and a nice, a bit firmer bitterness in the finish. Decent body and carbonation. Quite nice.

Holmen1 (3929) - Stavanger, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2014
0,5 flaske delt med Steve og håndimportør Ovesen: klar, gylden med hvitt filmskum. Deilig aroma av mandaring og aprikos. Forfriskende, lett sommerøl med middel munnfylde - lett å helle over drøvelen.

Cimbasso (491) - - AUG 17, 2014
A golden summer ale with a loose white head and an zesty orange aroma. A rich golden colour and clear appearance. It has a clean hoppy dryness with a good bitter finish, very much in the English tradition of a Golden Ale. Nicely balanced, and light and citrussy, this ale is perfect for summer drinking as it is refreshing and (at 4.5%) not too strong.

From bottle. Dark golden. White head and lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, lime and fresh pine shoots. Citrusy taste, combined with moderate bitterness. Quite long aftertaste. A bit astringent mouthfeel.
