3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a big white head. Long lasting foam and lot of carbonation streming off the bottom of the glass. Aroma is hop forward on the fruity side, with pineapple and citrus. Taste is similarly fruity but not overly bitter. Grapefruit and peaches with a touch of acidic note in the finish. Medium mouthfeel and well carbonated. Nice and refreshing. More an APA to me.

33cl Bottle from Utobeer, thanks Manon! Hazy orange colour, dense off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, stone fruits, light soapy, nice sweet fruity and floral hops, light citrus, sugar. Flavour is medium-sweet, stone fruits, mango, tea leaves, smooth bitter fruity hoppy finish. Light-bodied, smoft mouthfeel. I could drink loads of this stuff. Tasted more like an APA or IPA than a golden ale imo.

Bottle at home in London, picked up at Utobeer. Pours mostly clear gold with a large, frothy white head. Some dry orangey citrus in the nose, pale malts. Light sweet flavor with bright stone fruits, crispy hay and dry, pale malts, juicy orange. Light bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Clean finish with very faint resinous cling, some stoney orange and peach, low bitterness, bits of hay. Very nice, highly drinkable beer.
