Hildigöltur (5103) - København, - JUN 14, 2004
Golden coloured. Strange aroma and taste notes. Actually quite bad. Rather thin and watery. Very boring.

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

allmyvinyl (4223) - 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.

kaziopiwosz (360) - Warszawa / Wałbrzych, POLAND - OCT 3, 2012
Honey nute in taste, bitter palate. White foam, medium thick, stays for 3 minutes. Dark-golden colour. Not a bad beer.

jamestulloch (1568) - 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 (1123) - 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 (1877) - 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.

Bottle from Tesco
Dark amber...frothy white head..clear.....reasonable lacing
Aroma - rich golden malts...lots of sweetish malts...honey..bit of dough...slight buttery light caramel...slight hint of hops
Taste - Lots of golden malts...some light fruits...alcohol noticeable...honey....background of light earthy bitter hops...slight buttery caramel.....not fond of the malts at all here
Palate - soft carb....medium body..oily texture. Finish as main flavour...cloying sweet golden malts..honey...alcohol...bit metallic.
Overall - Cloying sweet malts...not much hops....alcohol noticeable......did not enjoy this...not my cup of tea

jvhemert (334) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2012
AROMA: bread, hay, barnyard, dough APPEARANCE: golden, clear, head frothy white then quickly minimal TASTE: medium sweetness, medium bitterness, not balanced well PALATE: medium body, sticky, lively, long mildly bitter aftertaste OVERALL: not bad, but the sweetness does not match well with the bitterness, refreshing at first, but with a lingering sweet sticky taste.
