mighty_meadow (308) - Kilwinning, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2015
500ml room temperature bottle poured into tulip glass. Light amber colour. Small lasting head and lacing. Packs a bit of a punch and doesn’t hide it’s 6%ABV. Alcohol is very noticeable but not in an off putting way.

"Golden colour, clean full malt flavour and crisp hop aftertaste". Aroma slightly smelly socks. Taste citrus, refreshing but also dry and bit off.

allmyvinyl (9562) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 8, 2013
500ml bottle shared at home. Pours hazy, cloudy even, yellow with a thin white head. Biscuit and flowery aromas, honey. Tastes boozier than many beers stronger than this. Light body and thin texture. no noticeable hop bitterness. OK, but a bit boring.

jamestulloch (3498) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 31, 2012
Aroma: Honey and unripe tropical fruit notes. Subtle hint of sauvignon blanc.

Appearance: Clear golden body with a huge white head that slowly fades. Light carbonation. Nice sticky lacing.

Taste: The fruity flavours are verging on sour. Quite tangy. Noticeable boozy taste for its 6% ABV.

Palate: Medium body with a dry, mouth-puckering mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation fizz.

Overall: Average at best. No uniqueness of flavour. In a word: dull.

OllieBBommel (1464) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2012
Bottle@home (0,5l) Broker white head, shrinking but stays. Color copper. Aroma malt, hops, floral. Taste hops, malt, some bitter, CO2. Palate silken, some bitter, lasting. Overall worth trying

TheCametron (2369) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 16, 2012
Bottle. Orange with thin white head. Very thin in every respect. Thin aroma, thin flavour. Light malt and light hops. Light bitter finish and a tangy after.
