bottle from saveur-biere. Hazy golden colour, mid-sized white head. Aroma of roses and tropcial fruit. Light-bodies, shy malty base yet it transports the intensive aromatic hope very well.

Flaske 0,5l fra Kilpishalli. Drukket hjemme 9 Apr 13. Lys gylden. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som varer lenge. Mye lacing. Pent! Herlig ferskenaroma. Smaken det samme med tillegg av ulike frukter. Blir litt tørr etter hvert. Innholdsrik. Litt bunnfall. Verdensrekord i smak/% ?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle): Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma of citrus, floral, bread, pale malt. Flavour is much of the same with a slight orange and peach hint on the finish. Moderately bitter and overall the beer is a little subdued.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at the York Tap. Very pale yellow pour, thin white head. Very floral aromas, some yeastiness too. Slips down like water. Would like a bit more character to it.

Aroma: medium floral hops, some bread malts. Appearance: hazy pale gold, medium frothy head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: low carbonation, bitters continue. Overall: quite bitter for a Golden Ale, but nice and very drinkable anyway. Bottle from Drinker’s Paradise, London.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle. Cloudy yellow body, medium head. Citric hops in the aroma but quite weak. Taste has unassertive lemony hops and some wheat. Decent hoppy finish but with a low ABV like this the beer’s flavour balance and overall impression suffers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle from Stockbridge Tap.
Appearance - very pale, almost white. Definitely lighter than golden. Some head.
Nose - yoghurty, the yeast is dominant. Maybe some lemon, not really any fruit though not unpleasant.
Taste - more lemon yoghurt with a hint of pale malt.
Palate - very light bodied, and texture is similar and the finish is dry.
Overall - a good effort to make a beer under 4% that has some taste, thought his is still very much yeast dominated. I’ll reach for a Jarl or an Orkney Best before this.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled: 10.2013. Pours hazy straw-golden with small white head; the head stays for some time. Aroma: fresh citrus, grass, mango, vinegar. Taste: a lot of grapefruit, fresh fruits, mango, with some sweetness and watery taste in the background. Long grapefruit bitter finish. Overall: it’s very fruity, almost citrus beer. It hides watery notes rather well (3,6% usually means that watery tastes will dominate). OK beer, but not among my favorites.
