A delicious beer. Hopped with armfuls of American Chinook hops, this beer oozes citrus flavour and aroma. It has a lovely sweetnes balanced with a lingering bitter finish backed up with a late grapefruit hit.

Finn (4710) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 16, 2014
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/% ?

teddybeer (2714) - Paris, FRANCE - FEB 8, 2014
Pale golden colour with a frothy white head with good lasting and nice lacework. Aroma is citrusy with some pine notes, slighty malty. Flavor has a decent bitterness with a good presence of citrus notes, some grapefruit as well, light maltiness. The final has a good bitterness with a dry mouthfeel.

Pizd (433) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 3, 2014
(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.

allmyvinyl (6047) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 31, 2014
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.

AdiBeer (1986) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2014
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.

thirstyrabbit (1411) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 19, 2014
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.

AshtonMcCobb (3764) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 8, 2014
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.

martjoobolut (1467) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 15, 2013
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.

Marduk (3841) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
330ml bottle. Hazy, light brown color. Small size, white head, stays. Sour, dirty cloth, malty, grainy, bit dead aroma. Malty, hops, grainy taste. Sneaking bitterness in aftertaste. Slick mouthfeel.

Cloudy yellowish colour with a disappointing white head. Strong floral aroma. Decent bitter taste too.
