mentalmind (43) - - MAR 8, 2014
Based on the brewery’s Summer ale from 2013 this brew is very similar but with a bit more punch on every aspect. Nice fresh hoppy aroma is dominating but the overall taste is still quite balanced.

mmyohane (56) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
Aroma has mandarin, orange peel and some floral notes. Pours hazy golden with a small head that leaves beautiful lacing. Taste has medium bitterness, light sweetness and grapefruit from hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Long bitter finish.

nihtila (1158) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Bottle from Alko. Nice aroma with mandarin, zest, exotic fruity hoppiness, grass. Taste is citrus and grassy bitter, grapefruit, orange, grass. A bit hoppier golden ale but a good one.

Toomio (301) - Joensuu, FINLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Vähän kirkkautta makuun tarvitsisi. Karvas se osittain on, mutta ihan hyvä tällainen Suomesta.

TBone (13358) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2015
Bottle 330ml (Alko)
Slightly hazy yellow color, good white head. Citrus, gooseberry in softly hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Fruity front then bitter citrus-piney hoppyness. Long lingering bitterness in the dry aftertaste. Good hoppy brew, although it is really IPA, not "Golden Ale".

al53 (85) - FINLAND - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle. Good looking bright golden colour with small white head. Grassy and hoppy aroma with sweet tropical fruits. Grapefruit, grass, pines, hoppy bitternes and citrus on taste. Medium bodied with good crisp carbonation. Dry and bitter finish with more pines and grapefruit. Surprisingly good, easy and refreshing, more apa or ipa style beer.

olio (6897) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 11, 2015
33 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large white head. Mandarin, orange peel and some floral hops aroma, some sweetish caramel too. Orange and some grass on the flavor, resin and hops. Soft carbonation, bitter grassy palate. This is actually quite nice and pleasant, balance is great and the hop profile suits here nicely. Good.

Marstonlad (518) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2015
Bottle from Alko, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a big white frothy head. The aroma features fresh fruitiness with notes of citrus and apple and grassy, herbal hoppiness; some pale maltiness also appears in the background. Taste is dry and hop-driven: grass, herbs and citrus appear. The hoppy bitterness is medium to heavy in strength. The palate is medium-bodied, the texture a bit sticky and the carbonation surprisingly high. Fairly hop-driven interpretation of a golden ale but definitely not a bad one.

TET (1910) - FINLAND - MAR 7, 2015
A hazy, yellow beer with a quite weak and white head. Aroma has biscuits, citrusfruits and herbs. Taste has biscuity malts, lemon, strong herbs, quite strong bitterness that is strongly herbal in the end. Medium bodied, quite high carbonation. Quite strong body, could be more refreshning. Strong bitterness in the traditional Golden Ale.

Sarpa (1000) - FINLAND - MAR 4, 2015
Bottle 33cl from Alko. Pours slightly hazy orange, small white head. Grapefruit, caramel, grass in the aroma. Bitter, grapefruit, fruity hops, caramel. Nice but not a typical golden ale.
